COMMERCIAL vehicle rental and hire company Burnt Tree has opened a new branch in Southampton.

The firm has opened a rental facility in Millbank Street which will be one of the largest of its 21 locations across the country.

The branch will boast a full range of vehicles for rental, from cars and light vans to accessible buses and even trucks.

New branch general manager Barry Dean said: “On our opening day, we had over 50 assorted vehicles available for rental from the branch and it is our plan to expand the business to such a level that we are looking to operate over 500 vehicles from here within the next couple of years.”
