White Oak UK have supported us with a number of purchases, providing over 100 in the last quarter alone. This is definitely a model that works for our business.
Diane Riley-Waite, Director, We Do Rentals Ltd
With a strong family background in logistics friends Diane Riley-Waite and Ali Akhtar founded We Do Rentals in 2011 after spotting an opportunity in the courier rental market.
Providing hire vehicles to both owner-drivers and larger corporations Diane and Ali have overseen phenomenal growth - with their business doubling in size each year since founding.
With the business growing rapidly Diane and Ali needed to ensure that they could quickly respond to their customer needs.
For many of their self-drive customers their van is their office, meaning they demand a higher specification of vehicle that simply isn't available as standard.
Asset finance from White Oak UK enabled We Do Rentals to purchase these vehicles outright and achieve a greater level of flexibility for more bespoke requests.
With White Oak's help, We Do Rentals is able to quickly respond to their customer needs and their business growth is not slowed down by the bureaucracy and red-tape you typically find through traditional finance options.
We Do Rentals now have ambitious growth plans and have already launched a Spanish operation to serve a growing European demand.
With Germany and Italy on the roadmap in 2018 - they are well on their way to achieving 5,000 rental vehicles across the business by 2020.
We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. White Oak UK were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
