A family business started by Ross, Lesley & Alan Batting (the 3 B’s) we have been trading since 2002.


Ross & Alan Batting

When we started out we decided we wanted to “treat our customers as we like to be treated” – something we still believe in today. Where as many of our larger competitors offer fixed pricing, hire periods and add on lots of extras we try to do things a bit differently.

Have you ever collected your car from a main dealership only to find a large bill full of ‘extras’ you didn’t know they were going to do? How about turned up to collect your hire vehicle to find that you needed to add insurance, breakdown cover or pay a large deposit?

At 3B we promise we will contact you before doing anything extra to your car and when we say the price of your hire is “all-in” we mean it!

Our hourly rates are typically half that of a main dealer and our hires are flexible so they meet your needs.

We have a large mix of new and well maintained hire vehicles on our fleet from small cars, 9 and 17 seater minibuses, your typical Transit style van right up to large Luton Tail Lift vans. We also have agreements with other companies to provide extra vehicles at short notice, giving us access to many vehicles at any one time – meaning we rarely have to say no!

We invest heavily in the latest diagnostic equipment and use the industry standard guidelines for repair times and known faults so you can be confident your getting the best advice possible.

We offer many services all in one place, including: servicing & maintenance, tyres, exhaust, batteries and maintenance alongside hire of cars, vans, minibuses and people carriers. We also act as a broker for contract hire and leasing for you or your business.

So go on, keep your trade local and give us a call first – you wont find a better combination of low prices and good old fashioned customer service locally!
