Second Hand RCV 'Best Decision' For Orion Waste

Established over 20 years ago Orion Waste Solutions provides a host of waste management, resource recovery and clearance services to businesses and the construction sector throughout the South East of England.  The company recently needed to purchase a 26 tonne refuse vehicle and decided to opt for a quality used vehicle rather than buy new.

John Stride, Managing Director, Orion Waste said: “We have never bought a big RCV before so to reduce our capital risk we opted for a used vehicle and I’m glad to say we couldn’t have made a better decision. It has definitely put us off buying a new vehicle in the future.”

The vehicle from Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS), was fully serviced, MOT’d, LOLER certified, reupholstered, re-sprayed in Orion’s livery and made free of visual defects before being delivered in under 6 weeks.  It cost less than 25% of the cost of a new vehicle, and promises the same operational lifetime.

One of London’s premier waste operators Orion operates a fleet of around 40 vehicles including roll-on roll-off vehicles, skip lorries, caged tippers and 18 tonne RCV’s. In response to a surge in demand the company has added 8 new vehicles to its fleet since October 2012.

Refuse Vehicle Solutions is the UK’s leading provider of high quality used and re-manufactured refuse vehicles, with the expertise and resources to engineer a vehicle to meet a customer’s precise requirements, including full or partial body re-manufacturing.
