Offering an LCV approach to suit your business

At Activa, we offer vehicle solutions based on your individual needs. That’s why we also offer personalised LCVs for your business

Light commercial vehicles

At Activa, we understand the importance of effectively managing your commercial vehicles.

As part of the Arnold Clark Group, we’re in a unique position to source our vehicles at cost price and provide a simple route to market for our vehicles at contract end. This means we can focus on making it as quick and easy as possible to get you on the road.

Using our many years of experience as a dedicated LCV specialist, we have developed a deep understanding of the specific demands and challenges of running a LCV fleet.

What we do

LCV consultancy

Our account managers work with you to learn how your business works, review your LCV requirements and help you identify the correct vehicles. We then develop a vehicle policy that is efficient, cost effective and environmentally sensitive.


Contract hire is a preferred option for funding business fleets. You pay a fixed rental cost each month based on the chosen vehicle, its estimated mileage, and chosen hire period. If you already own your fleet, you can still benefit from contract hire, thanks to our simple sale and leaseback process.

Reduce downtime

Service Direct is an Activa scheme that minimises off-road time by making it easy to book your entire fleet in for servicing. We also manage defect reports and provide an enhanced downtime management service.

Bespoke vehicles

Through our partnership with Bott, we can offer a complete conversion solution, from initial design to compliance guidance. We work together with you to meet your exact requirements, by providing:

  • Unparalleled project management ability and expertise
  • Tailoring of the solution and delivery to you
  • Conversions that last the full vehicle lifecycle

As we’re members of the Van Excellence scheme, you can be assured your vehicles are always compliant with legislative requirements to make sure drivers stay safe.
