The Grayrentals branch is led by Terry Moody (Operations Director). Terry and Robin started Grayrentals with a Tata pick and a mobile phone the size of a house brick in 1991. At that time, the fleet was made up of 80 trucks and trailers, today we manage 3,500. He is an excellent golfer and a big Hull City fan. He is famous for the 'Moody shuffle' which is seen annually at the Christmas party.

From a commercial perspective, the branch is led by Jonny Clark (Commercial Director). Jonny joined the commercial team in 2018 and has never looked back since. He is also a keen golfer, though who is the better between him and Terry has never been revealed.
