Leicestershire-based Bakers Waste Services (BWS) has teamed up with a leading provider of Remanufactured and Quality Used refuse vehicles to grow its fleet and keep its vehicles in optimum condition.
Bakers Waste used to purchase new vehicles straight from the manufacturers but for the past three years the company has relied on the services of Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS) to repair, modify and renew its fleet, including the purchase of 6 Quality Used vehicles.
Paul Baker, Managing Director, Bakers Waste said: “RVS provides us with a unique, flexible service, which is essential to helping us get the most out of our vehicles. Not only have they supplied us with superbly presented Quality Used vehicles that genuinely offer the same lifetime as a new vehicle, they have remanufactured some of our existing fleet to extend the life of those vehicles. RVS also supply us with parts, and provide technical support, for minor refurbishments carried out at our own workshop.”
As well as having some of its own vehicles remanufactured, Bakers Waste has just ordered a complete remanufactured vehicle, mounted onto a brand new chassis.
Paul Baker added: “We need to be able to respond to changes in customer demand quickly. We can’t hang around for months waiting for a new vehicle to be delivered and we also need to keep an eye on our capital spend. RVS can turn vehicles around quickly and cost effectively, and they offer different options so there is always a way to achieve what we need to keep our fleet running at an optimum level.”
Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS said: “We don’t just sell used refuse trucks. Our remanufacturing capabilities mean that we can provide virtually any configuration of vehicle or we can take a customers vehicle and remanufacture specific areas. We offer a raft of services to keep our customer’s fleets running uninterrupted, such as cost effective workshop and field engineer services, vehicle remanufacturing and repairs, new and used parts, product training, inspections, finance packages and temporary vehicle cover via our Product Support fleet. We are also happy to provide technical drawings and support if customers wish to carry out their own minor refurbishments.”
Established in 2002 Bakers Waste offers extensive solutions such as waste collection, recycling, shredding, ISO accreditation and compliance audits to over 5000 companies across Leicestershire and the East Midlands.
RVS specialises in revitalising used refuse vehicles, stripping them down and replacing or repairing defective parts to provide high quality ‘as new’ vehicles that cost a fraction of the expense of a new vehicle. The company has the engineering capabilities to adapt, modernise or remanufacture any make or model of refuse vehicle to match each client’s individual needs and budget.
