Plantec Assist Expands Fleet

26 March 2021

Whilst many companies will be reeling from the effects of the pandemic for many months to come, Plantec Assist is bucking the trend by looking ahead and investing in the future.

As one of the leading providers within the motorcycle hire, repair and claims management industry, Plantec Assist has recently purchased an additional 250 Yamaha Nmax scooters to compliment and strengthen its fleet. 

Over the past 12 months, there has been a significant shift in customer needs and behaviour, as many more people are using scooters to commute to work.  There has also been a huge increase in demand for food delivery riders and couriers.  As such bikers are now demanding more from their hire vehicle, with customers wanting like-for-like, bigger scooters with a higher spec and features including USB ports and heated grips as standard. The Yamaha Nmax is one of the most requested scooters – as it is a perfect commuter scooter with premium finishing’s and a high specification. 

Dave Beetison, Head of Operations for Plantec Assist commented: “We are delighted to have invested in these fantastic scooters.  We strongly believe that now is a really good time to take stock and ensure that we have the correct vehicles available for when the volumes return, later in the year.  It’s so important to us that we’re able to offer like-for-like replacement bikes wherever possible. With more and more people requesting the Yamaha Nmax, we want to be known as the go to provider for all motorcycle claims, especially for commuters who are relying on scooters to be a safer mode of transport to get to and from work.

We’re delighted with this addition to our fleet as we’re certain that they’re only going to gain in popularity as everyone starts to return to the office.  Aside from being a fun, easy way to travel, they’re also very economical to run.  We’re really confident that we’ve got a very strong offering in terms of the range of bikes and brands in our fleet and look forward to going from strength to strength in 2021.”
