Real recycling company Reef Environmental has taken a second RediTruck on contract hire to boost its fleet in response to growing demand as the company extends its coverage further across Sussex, Surrey and Kent.
On this occasion Reef chose a Mercedes Econic chassis with a Dennis body, and with the help of RVS Mercedes partner City West Commercials the vehicle was delivered in a very short timeline.
Paul Mintern, Director, Reef Environmental: “We are delighted with the new vehicle. RVS is a family business and prides itself on good customer service. It’s reassuring to know it is supporting our fleet, and that in the unlikely event the vehicle suffers a serious breakdown it can provide a replacement quickly. We’ve selected the Dennis Olympus again as we consider it the best body available, but we've opted for the Mercedes Econic chassis this time because it is purpose-designed for the waste management industry, so more suitable for our operations. The truck’s low-entry cab, great turning circle and all-round visibility are particularly important features. It also has a superior gearbox and offers impressive performance. What’s more, our local Mercedes-Benz workshop is only 20 minutes’ drive away, so very convenient for maintenance purposes.”
Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS commented: “Reef Environmental is well known for its excellent customer service and reliability, and is a great company to work with. We are proud to provide and maintain refuse vehicles which maximise its operational efficiency and facilitate the delivery of its services.
“In the five years since we launched our RediTruck service City West Commercials has supplied us with in excess of 100 new chassis. The Dealer’s after sales service is great and we consider it an excellent vehicle partner.”
