Another Milestone for Bluelight UK

Bluelight UK Ltd has just opened another vehicle storage facility in Ashton in Makerfield near St Helens. This site will allow the company to take on more assets for its remarketing operation and is equipped with workshops and offices.

“We are constantly evolving,” commented managing director, Simon Forster. “Good secure storage has always been one of our biggest concerns and with this important addition to our armoury we now can stock up to 150 vehicles. We are selling more ambulances than ever, but sometimes the timeframes can be stretched due to charities, committees and export procurement processes. This space provides us with a mass of opportunities. In addition to this, our site at Atherton is being extended which will enable us to deliver even more vehicles.”

Due to demand there are just 11 frontline ambulance vehicles in stock today including 2015 and 2016 Sprinters and national specification Ducatos, as well as a fleet of well-maintained PTS vehicles.

“We are preparing for a glut of incoming Patient Transport Service vehicles ranging from Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles to Bariatric over the coming weeks. This has been delayed due to the replacement vehicle supply, but we are ready. We are also due to take delivery of another 9 brand new High Dependency Units in the next few weeks and have more Rapid Response vehicles arriving soon with more Front Line National Spec ambulances due in the next four to five months.” added Simon. “This year in addition to our normal UK business, we have already supplied pre-owned vehicles to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Malta, Uganda, Mozambique. We don’t make a song and dance about how we are helping in Ukraine, but we are currently aiding the cause on many fronts”.

Bluelight UK is also heavily involved with new vehicle supply (not exclusively) for the UK market, in particular specialist conversions such as High Dependency Units (B category), Secure and Non-Secure Mental Health Transport Units and Driver Training Units as well as Support Vehicles and other specialist medical transport solutions. Their experience in this field is invaluable and the team also has expertise in helping new businesses establish themselves, providing sound advice for anyone planning a new “start-up” private ambulance business.

All the vehicles in stock are ex NHS Trust and have been well-maintained. Pre-owned vehicles (especially ex NHS Trust) can make a huge difference to your capital expenditure. Repurposing quality pre-owned vehicles has also got to be good for the environment.

With the current exhaustive new vehicle lead-times Bluelight UK can often offer solutions for short, medium and long term whether you normally purchase or lease your vehicles. Their rental ambulances can also provide you with a stop-gap for delayed new vehicle builds, VOR downtime or new contracts.
