Extended Description

Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council operates a fleet of 48 vehicles across a range of vehicle types/specifications e.g. small vans, standard saloons/people carriers and special needs minibuses to larger tanker services and street lighting vehicles. The Council wishes to explore a number of options regarding the replacement of all of the vehicles as they reach the termination date of the current lease hire arrangements.
