It is said that there are two types of lorry driver on Britain’s roads, those that drive a Scania, and those that wish that they drove a Scania! An exaggeration maybe, but there’s certainly no denying that the Swedish truck maker has an enviable reputation amongst HGV drivers, which has been enhanced with the arrival of its highly acclaimed Next Generation R and S series trucks.
It’s not just the men and women behind the steering wheel that wax lyrical about Scania either, as the marque is held in equally high regard by many UK hauliers. Its tractor units are popular across the full spectrum of operators, including owner drivers, small family run firms, supermarket chains and of course high profile hauliers like Eddie Stobart. Although not the cheapest trucks on the market, these customers appreciate Scania’s low total cost of ownership, its reputation for reliability, and its class-leading residual values. What’s more, operators who specify a V8 over a 6-cylinder engine, soon discover that they no longer have a driver recruitment problem.
Already a dominant force in 6×2 tractors, and a frequent market leader in the 8×4 construction sector, now Scania is making a conscious effort to boost the popularity of its 18 to 26 tonne P series urban and regional distribution rigids.

At Asset Alliance Group, our primary role is to help you select the best option for your business to optimize your P&L, balance sheet, cash flow and tax management through the range of options that are available to you.
As contract hire and leasing specialists, we offer an industry-leading contract hire product with or without maintenance that is built on an unrivalled understanding of the commercial vehicle sector. Our contract hire solutions range from the smallest single trucks and trailers to low emission and alternative fuel vehicles and fleet management of the UK’s largest logistics providers.
A finance lease differs from other commercial vehicle leasing in many ways, but it remains a fixed-term contract which allows you the benefit of an asset without ultimate ownership.
For companies that require a contract hire arrangement, but over a more flexible period, our solution is FlexiHire. This works similarly to our contract hire arrangements but is offered on a 12-month rolling contract.
Hire purchase is instalment financing for those who ultimately wish to own the asset and assume all associated costs of maintaining the vehicle or trailer. It differs from asset leasing primarily in ownership, but it also presents other financing methods that may better suit your business.
With almost 5,000 vehicles under management, we are true commercial vehicle specialists in servicing and maintaining trucks and trailers and all forms of commercial vehicles.
