Waste collection and recycling provider Ubico has opted to update its existing fleet with the purchase of three quality used vehicles from Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS).
The vehicles – all quality used 6x4 26tonne Dennis Eagle Phoenix 2s with Elite 2 chassis cabs and Terberg OmniDel bin lifts – will be used to handle recycled waste collections throughout Cotswold District Council. They have been purchased to replace an ageing vehicle fleet which Ubico inherited from a previous contractor.
Rob Bell, Managing Director of Ubico comments: “When the first vehicle was delivered to us we were amazed by the finish and quality of the workmanship. It looks brand new and has been delivered just four weeks after we placed our order, complete with an MOT and three-month parts warranty.
“RVS will be delivering the remaining two vehicles in September, just seven weeks after we placed our order, and are continuing to keep us up-to-date with weekly progress reports. We are delighted with the quality of service and product RVS is providing and their professional approach has made the purchase of quality used vehicles the most cost effective and efficient way to update our fleet. The ability to update the fleet without the major outlay and longer lead times required when buying new RCVs was also a key consideration.”
RVS is committed to delivering improved industry standards for the provision of re-manufactured, second life vehicles. The company recently received the PAWRS Industry Innovation Award in recognition of its work in this area and focus on ensuring customers get the very best value for money as well as optimal performance from their refuse collection vehicle.
