SOR isn’t the best known trailer maker in the UK, but don’t let that put you off, as it’s a very different story on the Continent. This Spanish manufacturer, which has produced more than 30,000 vehicles at its Valencia factory so far, has close to 50 years of experience in the refrigerated truck market. More than 50% of what it builds is for export, including to the UK, which is an increasingly important market for the company.
SOR has a reputation for producing some of the lightest reefers on the market, but without compromising robustness. This is reflected in the longevity of its products, and also in the decent residuals they command on the used market.
Although undoubtedly best known for its semi-trailers, SOR also produces a full range of rigid truck and van bodies. It is known for its hanging meat trailers and rigid bodies, and has been manufacturing 20ft and 40ft multimodal swap bodies since the mid 1990s. We anticipate SOR semi-trailers becoming a more common sight on our roads in the coming years.
We are thrilled to have retained our title as Commercial Motor’s Finance Provider of the Year for our flexible approach to funding.

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.
