No sooner are we back from a great Plant and Waste Recycling Show in Torbay (thanks to all the visitors who came to our stand) and it’s onto planning for the Resource Efficiency and Waste Management Solutions Expo at the NEC (16-18 September).
This is the show’s 46th year (yes really!) and promises to be the biggest yet as it moves into the larger halls - 4 & 5.
For the first time we are exhibiting indoors and bringing two vehicles: a Quality Used 2008 Euro 5 Dennis Elite 2 with Phoenix 2 body and Terberg OmniDel Binlift; and a completely remanufactured 7.5-tonne NTM body mounted onto a brand new Isuzu chassis.
One of the UK’s largest unitary authorities, Wiltshire Council has returned to purchase more vehicles to replace part of its fleet with RVS Quality Used and Remanufactured vehicles.
Ian Mckinnon, Fleet Transport Officer, Wiltshire Council quoted: “We needed to reduce our capital spend on vehicles and decided to look at the second hand market. We were impressed with the quality of vehicles and workmanship delivered by RVS and since our initial order last year we have purchased additional vehicles.”
To date the authority has purchased four Quality Used Recycling Kerbsiders, all Mercedes Econic chassis with Terberg bodies. We also remanufactured one of their own vehicles before putting it back into service. All the vehicles are operated by contractor Hills Waste Solutions.
Ian continued: “The vehicles were presented in an excellent condition and we monitor their performance keeping a close eye on any maintenance costs. So far it is proving to be a very cost effective solution and I wouldn’t hesitate to consider re-manufactured or second hand vehicles in the future. The service and customer care from RVS has been exemplary.”
If you need a vehicle to cover any shortfall in capacity, purchasing a re-manufactured or quality used vehicle can be a much more cost efficient solution. Call us to find out if we have any suitable vehicles in stock.
