Leicester-based total waste management company, Bakers Waste Services (BWS), which celebrates its 10th birthday this week, is expanding its fleet with another re-manufactured refuse vehicle from Refuse Vehicle Solutions.
A refuse vehicle driver by trade, Paul Baker started the company in June 2002 with just one truck – an ERF EC6 4x2 RCV – collecting 10 trade waste bins. These days the company has a fleet in excess of 30 trucks, from FEL’s & REL’s to roll on-roll off vehicles, and handles waste and recycling from over 5000 companies. With the full range of services all under one roof, Bakers Waste offers waste collection, recycling and shredding services, as well as helping companies to achieve ISO accreditation and divert waste away from landfill.
Although the company has purchased new vehicles straight from manufacturers before, a re-manufactured vehicle from RVS offered the best value for money especially given the current difficult economic climate. The new vehicle is a 2006 Dennis Elite 2 with Geesink Vulture body and Combi S3 Trade Lift.
Paul Baker: “We bought a vehicle from RVS last year and they did an excellent job. They’re experts at lengthening the life of dustcarts. It runs superbly and is mechanically sound, and we didn’t hesitate to go back again to order another vehicle. RVS can turn around a vehicle much quicker than most manufacturer’s lead times, which is crucial for our business. We often need vehicles at short notice to meet the demands of new business.”
Paul added: “Doing business with RVS is much more straightforward than with some of the large manufacturers and dealers. The service is attentive and professional and any minor issues are dealt with promptly.”
