Galliard Construction is the major workforce of Galliard Homes Ltd, a leading London property developer for over 23 years, and responsible for regenerating many areas of London including the Docklands and Royal Borough of Greenwich. The company runs a fleet of refuse collection vehicles to manage waste at its development sites and, in keeping with its commitment to sustainability, recently purchased a remanufactured RCV from Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS).
The vehicle comprises a Heil Powerlink body with Zoeller Omega Trade Bin lift mounted onto a brand new 6x2 rear steer Euro 6 Mercedes Antos chassis.
Donagh O’Sullivan, Managing Director, Galliard Construction said: "We purchased a Quality Used refuse vehicle from RVS a few years ago and we have been very impressed with both the presentation and performance of the vehicle so naturally we went back to them when we needed to expand our fleet again.
Continued Donagh: “This time they have remanufactured a vehicle to our exact specifications and we have saved around 50% of the cost had we bought it direct from the manufacturer. It promises the same operational longevity but has enabled us to reduce our capital spend so its a win win, plus we know from previous experience that the after sales support from RVS is exemplary."
RVS specialises in revitalising used refuse vehicles, stripping them down and replacing or repairing defective parts to provide high quality ‘as new’ vehicles that cost a fraction of the expense of a new vehicle. The company has the engineering capabilities to adapt, modernise or remanufacture any make or model of refuse vehicle to match each client’s individual needs and budget.
