Basic Hire Rates

We are pleased to announce that Dean Roberts of DPR Solutions Ltd has agreed to act as our resident sounding board on issues related to vehicle hire rates, rate evidence and the behaviour and peculiarities of the various firms that crop up on behalf of defendants on a regular basis.

Many of you will have seen the notes Dean prepared following the memo of the judgment written by Steven Turner following the Bunting appeal. He is ready to offer a cement when the transcript of the judgment becomes available. He will also engage in any Forum topics relating to Basic Hire Rate.

Dean was previously employed by Bikers Legal Defence Ltd for over 10 years before moving to APU Ltd in late 2015, where he drafted rebuttal statements exclusively on behalf of Accident Exchange. He now drafts reports for several solicitor firms and credit hire companies, the majority of which have utilised his reports on a daily basis since June 2018.

Details of his involvement with the Forum can be found on the new BHR page (accessible from the main menu on the Credit Hire Forum website). If anyone has any queries associated with rate evidence, or any knowledge or intelligence about errors or defects in the evidence, please send them to For those wishing to contact Dean about the production of reports, he can be contacted on 07539 375139 or by email at
