CMS Hire

Business bio 

Originally founded as a generalist truck repair and maintenance service provider, CMS Hire initially dealt with repairing refuse collection vehicles and front-end loaders for local authorities. When local authorities had their vehicles in repair, they expected courtesy vehicles, which opened the door to market expansion for CMS. With an increasing demand for vehicle hire, CMS Hire typically let vehicles on a one-year lease, with shorter-term leases available for seasonal requirements.
