Latest data from the BVRLA shows that membership grew in 2017, with an increasing number of small and medium sized organisations joining the association.
As the association’s 50th year drew to a close, membership reached 931. The largest growth area during 2017 was the leasing broker sector, which grew 4.3%. Rental membership saw a 1.5% increase and the association sees this sector as a priority for recruitment efforts over the coming year.
The total combined BVRLA members’ fleet size was up 2% year-on-year, with a record fleet size of almost 5 million vehicles – that’s 1-in-8 cars, 1-in-5 vans and 1-in-5 trucks licensed on UK roads.
BVRLA Chief Executive, Gerry Keaney said: “We are delighted to report another year of membership growth at the BVRLA. This continued growth in both the size and diversity of our membership, as well as the size of fleet they operate, gives us a greater power of influence when representing our industry’s interests on a national and an international stage.”
