UK's largest scooter hire company now serves seven counties, including Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire
A scooter hire company, the largest of its kind in the UK, is celebrating a move to new headquarters and further expansion.
Scoots Hire provides mopeds for people to travel to work, education and training or to enable them to become more independent.
The organisation was launched in March 2017 and originally served Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
Now, the organisation has expanded its service into Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and south Lincolnshire.
The organisation has now assisted more than 1,000 people with their travel needs over the seven counties since its launch.
Employing 10 full-time members of staff Scoots Hire also recently moved into a new purpose built headquarters in the village of Yaxham, just outside Dereham, Norfolk.
Barry Lynes, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Scoots Hire, said: “Our growth over the past two years has been rapid and demand for our service continues to grow.
"We are now the largest wheels to work organisation in the country and have a fleet of more than 300 vehicles to hire.
“Although Scoots Hire operates as a business we were established in the wheels to work sector to assist individuals who are affected by the barrier the lack of affordable transport can cause and that ethos remains central to our business model.
"We are extremely proud of our achievements and to have assisted more than 1,000 people across seven counties in just two years is truly remarkable.
"Our aim is to continue to expand to help even more people enjoy a better quality of life through access to affordable transport.”
Scoots Hire, offers mopeds for as little as £5.75 per day, often less than a return bus fare with the flexibility to travel to any location at any time.
The cost includes insurance, road tax, routine servicing and 24 hour breakdown cover.
Vehicles are delivered directly to people and full training can be provided close to their home.
The choice of bikes range from 50cc automatics to 125cc geared scooters.
