Posh players and kitman visit Global Self Drive.

It was happy days for Posh kit man Dan Wood, as he received a new van, as he benefitted from our partnership with our friends at Global Self Drive car & van rental, based on Saville Road in Westwood.

Posh midfielders, Jon Taylor and Erhun Oztumer accompanied Dan, as he picked up the keys to his new ride on Thursday afternoon. It was all smiles at their Peterborough branch where General Manager, Ollie Weston, posed for photos with Dan and the players.

Global Self Drive is a popular and well respected car and van rental company that was initially established in three locations, Cambridge, Peterborough and Ipswich by the owner, Chris Webb in 1995.

The car and rental company has gone on to expand, opening further branches in Colchester (2001), Grantham (2006) and most recently in Stansted (2013).

2006, was a landmark year for the company as they invested £6 million into new Mercdes-Benz vehicles and also saw the start of a partnership with Toyota. Whilst starting a partnership with Toyota, they became the first major car hire company to use hybrid cars.

During 2008, Global Self Drive committed to lower the CO2 footprint, providing company cars to staff with sub-110g/km emissions. Then in 2010 they officially became carbon neutral, which meant new procedures were applied to all branches to reduce their carbon footprint.
