The business was founded in Darlington, England in 1981 and over the course of 33 years it grew by acquiring local van rental companies across the UK.
In 2000 Northgate Vehicle Hire Ireland opened with the first branch location being in Dublin. From 2013 we grew our business in Ireland with the opening of branches in Cork, Limerick and Sandyford, south Dublin. Last year we relocated our Dublin head office as part of our goal to continually improve the service we offer our customers. This year our Cork offices moved to a larger premises and currently we are looking at opening further depots in Ireland, in particular in Galway, to further serve our growing base of customers.
