The BVRLA is the trade body for the vehicle rental and leasing sector.
By consulting with government and maintaining industry standards, we help our members deliver safe, sustainable and affordable road transport to millions of consumers and businesses.
The BVRLA has published its latest Quarterly Leasing Survey results, showing that the overall car leasing market shrank for the first time since BVRLA started compiling this survey in 2014, with the total fleet leasing sector for cars and vans at 1.329m, a fall of 16,000 on the same period last year.
The fleet leasing market for cars (Contract hire and Finance lease only) continues to shrink, down by 4% year on year. It now stands at 948,000.
Latest data from the BVRLA shows that membership has continued to grow throughout 2017. As the association’s 50th year drew to a close, membership reached 931, with a record fleet size of almost 5 million vehicles – that’s 1-in-8 cars, 1-in-5 vans and 1-in-5 trucks licensed on UK roads.
An increasing number of small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) joined the BVRLA and all core membership categories saw a year-on-year increase. The association recruited 77 new members over the course of 2017 and saw a net year-on-year gain of 23 members across all sectors.
