Newsletter - August 2016

There's no missing us at this years' RWM show! We're demonstrating four vehicles starting with a superbly remanufactured Heil Front End Loader on a new Scania chassis on the roundabout as you enter the NEC. There are two RVS vehicles flanking the entrance doors to the Show Halls, one from our RediTruck range of vehicles and one from our new Hire fleet.

The RediTruck is a brand new Dennis Elite 6 with Dennis Olympus body and Beta Trade Lift and it's still for sale so if you're interested please contact our sales team on 01453 899 131 for details. To showcase our Hire Fleet we have selected a new Mercedes Econic with Dennis Olympus body and Terberg OmniDEL bin lift, which is available for short to long-term hire including contract hire.

With the fourth vehicle we've taken a step back in time and gone retro. Our stand features an original 1978 Smith Cabac '75 electric street cleansing vehicle, and we've packed it with sweets from the 1970's! Visit us in Hall 5 and fill your boots!

Hire Service Takes Off

Our new vehicle hire service is proving to be a big hit with both existing and new customers.

South Wales waste management company Amber Services have contract hired one of our vehicles, a brand new Mercedes Antos RCV with Dennis Eagle Olympus 23

Jay Jones, Managing Director, Amber Services said:

"We are looking at different approaches as to how we finance the expansion and replacement of our fleet.

With the contract hire option from RVS we get a new vehicle for a fixed cost every month and we don’t need to worry about maintenance or repair bills. At the end of the term we can hand the vehicle back without worrying about its residual value."

Luton-based waste management company, Cawleys, a third-generation family business with over 65 years experience in the industry has also been using our hire services.

Phil Gudgeon, Operations Manager, Cawleys said:

"We run a fleet of over 80 vehicles and sometimes require hire vehicles to bridge gaps when our own trucks are being repaired or MOT'd. We are extremely impressed by the RVS hire vehicles.

Not only do they look better than other hire vehicles they are also operating very well. The few issues we have had have been resolved really quickly. We've had them for 3 months now and there's little sign of us getting rid of them especially with the prospect of more business coming in."

RVS Quality Used Fleet For Stroud

We have delivered a fleet of 12 Quality Used vehicles for Ubico's new waste, recycling and cleansing contract with Stroud District Council.

The vehicles comprise four Dennis Elite 2 with Olympus body RCV's fitted with Terberg OmniDel bin lifts, two VW Transporter Caged Tippers, five Toyota Hilux fitted with cages and one Mercedes Sprinter Panel van.

Mark Hulbert, Fleet Manager, Ubico explains:

"When we take on a new contract we like to split the profile of vehicles so that we can maintain our fleet costs evenly year on year. RVS run a very efficient operation and we are impressed with every aspect of their service.

The quality of the vehicles is such that they are difficult to tell apart from brand new vehicles. They represent excellent value."

Proud To Be Part Of The Circular Economy

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has long recognised our commitment to putting the circular economy into action and has recently updated its case study about us on it website. To see it Click Here

We have developed our own RVS Lifecycle Model, which illustrates how we can extend the life and optimum operation of refuse vehicles from cradle to grave for up to 15 years, through proper maintenance and care, whilst re-using and recycling as much of the original raw materials as possible.
