Paccar’s financial service arm, PacLease has added four new franchises in NSW to take its Australian total to 10.

PacLease offers Kenworth and DAF brand rental and lease vehicles and customised contract maintenance plans for customer owned vehicles.

Three of the new PacLease franchises are in the Sydney metropolitan region: Arncliffe, Hutingwood and Narellan, with the other at Hexam, near Newcastle.

“As part of our planned expansion, and as a result of increased demand for our truck rental, full service lease and contract maintenance services, we are pleased to announce our expansion into the greater Sydney and Newcastle New South Wales markets” said Olen Hunter, director of PacLease Australia.

“With this announcement we now have 10 locations in Australia to serve our valued customers and are very pleased to be able to serve new customers in Sydney and Newcastle.

Cragi Sutton, director of Sutton’s Group, one of Paccar’s most prominent sites in Sydney, said the announcement of PacLease will allow him to serve customers in new ways.

“We are excited to expand our product offering to include commercial truck rental, full service lease and contract maintenance packages to new and existing customers,” he said.

“We see truck rental and leasing as a complementary service to provide our existing customers and to attract new customers we haven’t done business with before” Sutton added.
