Leicestershire-based waste management provider, AE Burgess & Sons Ltd is enhancing its commercial waste services with the purchase of a brand-new refuse vehicle.
Rob Gundle, Director, AE Burgess & Sons Ltd: “We are growing steadily and adding new jobs to our rounds every week so we needed a new, ultra-reliable vehicle to manage the longer distance collections on the outskirts of Leicestershire and to replace an existing vehicle that had broken down.”
The company, which provides a range of services including skip hire, recycling, scrap metal, commercial and hazardous waste management, purchased a brand-new 26t Mercedes Econic Dennis Olympus refuse vehicle from Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd. The new truck is equipped with the latest bin-weighing and safety technology, including a camera recording system and reverse radar. RVS’ new refuse vehicle service is known as RediTruck, because the vehicles are ready immediately and customers don’t have the wait long lead times (typically 6-9 months) often required by manufacturers.
Rob: “Although RVS are well known for supplying great quality used vehicles, four of which we have purchased on the past few years, they also provide brand new, off the shelf, commercial spec refuse trucks. They advise you what you need in terms of lifting kit or weighing equipment and they install it to the vehicle so it’s ready to go when it arrives.
“The great thing is that you don’t have to wait months for delivery as the vehicles are already in stock. We needed a truck immediately and they delivered it within a month of us placing the order. We even rented a truck from their hire fleet whilst we were waiting for ours to arrive. It’s much easier when everything you need is under one roof.”
Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS: “We introduced RediTruck because we identified a need in the market-place for quick turnaround new, ready for work refuse vehicles. Company’s like AE Burgess need to be able to respond quickly to new customer demand or to replace old vehicles in their fleet.”
AE Burgess & Sons recycle over 96% of the waste it collects and runs two Materials Recycling Facilities (MRF) in Leicester.
RVS provides a complete one-stop solution for refuse vehicle operators, supplying a wide range refuse vehicles – new, Quality Used and Remanufactured – as well as a host of support services comprising repairs, service, hire vehicles, breakdown cover, parts, finance and vehicle transportation.
