Newsletter - November 2016

We started working with Simply Waste Solutions over a year ago after taking over the maintenance of their fleet of refuse trucks. Since then the company has noticed a substantial positive impact on its fleet operations with a significant decrease in breakdowns.

James Capel, Managing Director, Simply Waste Solutions (SWS) said: “The team at Refuse Vehicle Solutions have a wealth of specialist knowledge and skills so we asked them to help us maintain our fleet. They came in and assessed all of our vehicles before drawing up a specification of recommendations for each vehicle as well as a preventative maintenance schedule to service our vehicle bodies and bin lifts.

The whole process has been seamless and we have noticed a big reduction in vehicle breakdowns.” SWS was recently awarded 3rd place in the ‘Fast 50’ list, which identifies the fastest growing businesses in waste and resource management, at the Chartered Institute of Waste Management’s (CIWM) awards ceremony.

This is the third year in a row that the company has been in the top 10. Added James: “The service we deliver to our customers is paramount and although many of our competitors don’t adopt this prevention rather than cure approach we know that it pays dividends. RVS act as our eyes and ears on the safety front, inspecting the vehicles regularly and comprehensively.”

Wiltshire Council Saves £’s By Overhauling

We were recently asked to extend the life of two refuse vehicles from Wiltshire Council’s waste and recycling fleet, as the result of an extended contract.

Andrew Saxton, Fleet Manager, Wiltshire Council said:

“The timeline of a contract changed and we considered hiring new vehicles. I have known Spencer at RVS for years so gave him a call. It worked out much better value to have the vehicles overhauled rather than hiring vehicles. In fact it has cost us a fraction of what we would have spent on rental charges.”

The Dennis Eagle 26 tonne bodies (2008 & 2009 respectively) and Terberg bin lifts required extensive repair work including a major packer overhaul and repairing the ejector panels.

Following a meticulous scope of works that included replacing all pins, bushes, bearings, and checking/replacing control units & switches, the vehicles have been brought back to the manufacturer’s standards. One vehicle needed to be repainted due the extent of welding work necessary.
