Mick George Ltd is expanding its fleet to meet customer demand and has taken on two brand new refuse vehicles from Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS). One of the vehicles is on a 3-year contract hire agreement and the other vehicle, from the RVS RediTruck stock, has been purchased outright.
Lukasz Borodziuk, Operations Manager, Mick George Ltd: “We needed new trucks due to the number of new commercial waste contracts starting and we knew that RVS would provide quality vehicles, an efficient service and great support at a competitive price.”
The vehicles are both Scania P280 fitted with Olympus 23w bodies and Beta trade bin lifts. The 3-year contract hire agreement includes full maintenance, which will be carried out by RVS’ specialist engineers. All costs such as MOT tests and 6 weekly inspections of the chassis, body and bin lift are included in the hire package.
RVS launched Reditruck earlier this year providing a rolling stock of brand new vehicles available for customers to drive away immediately.
Paul Brown, Commercial Director, RVS said: “RediTruck enables waste and recycling operators to buy a new refuse vehicle without having to wait for manufacturers’ long lead times. Customers can drive away a RediTruck with full commercial specification within days or weeks of placing an order.”
Recently RVS introduced its own Hire Service, including contract hire, completing its mission to provide ‘The Complete Refuse Vehicle Solution’.
Paul Brown continued: “We wanted to offer customers the opportunity to have a brand new vehicle without the capital expenditure, plus we have the expertise to keep the vehicle in optimum working order. At the end of the contract they can just hand the vehicle back without having to worry about its condition or residual values.”
A leading provider of soil disposal, aggregate & concrete supply and waste management services Mick George Ltd is the largest independent supplier to the construction industry in East Anglia and the East Midlands. The company runs a fleet of over 320 vehicles and first contacted RVS a few months ago with an urgent requirement for two 15t trade waste vehicles for a new contract with Cambridge University. RVS sourced the vehicles in a matter of days.
Lukasz continued: “Right from the start we have been impressed with how RVS has responded to our requests. They have been very flexible, helping us as and when we need it, which is perfect.”
RVS provides cost effective refuse vehicles: New from stock (RediTruck); Remanufactured; or Quality Used; and a complete range of support services including vehicle hire, contract hire & maintenance, repairs & service, parts and finance.
