About Terminus Contract Hire

With experience of over 50 years, Terminus Contract Hire has established itself as a market leader in the vehicle rental industry across the West Midlands.

In 1957, with just one Ford Thames van and two Ford Consol cars, Wolverhampton-born Peter Barley laid the foundations of TCH and saw it thrive for over three decades. By 1999, Peter began to wind-down the company’s activity in line with his retirement. He reduced his fleet to just 11 vehicles, including a beloved bright orange 1989 minibus!

Aged 70, Peter sold the business to a family-run company, the Surefit Group – that’s us; we operate widely across the automotive market. Since 1999, TCH has seen a complete rejuvenation and dramatic growth. Today, our company is recognized as a major presence in the motor industry, operating hundreds of quality vehicles from the world’s leading manufacturers.

One thing in particular sets us apart from our competitors; We always put our customer’s needs first

Our most recent expansion came in July 2010 when Gwalia Hire, a vehicle hire company in Herefordshire, joined TCH and the Surefit Group. Gwalia Hire was a family-run company, which established itself as a successful business for over 40 years of trading. One of the main reasons we were keen for them to become a part of TCH was their local identity and personal touch, which they are still well-known for today.

Our team of experts across the company share the ambition to build TCH further and for our name to become synonymous with quality, reliability and attention to detail. With the strength of a large corporation and the personal touch of independent companies at our heart, TCH is pleased to provide the most tailored experience for all clients, every time.
