Nationwide waste and recycling collection company Wastecollection.com is reducing vehicle downtime and improving the reliability of its fleet by procuring new vehicles on contract hire.
Karol Wozniak, Operations Manager, Wastecollection.com said: “We don’t run our own workshops so we were looking to obtain new vehicles on a contract hire basis with full maintenance included. With our current fleet we tend to use local mechanics but this can cause delays and vehicles can then be out of action for an unacceptable period of time.”
Wastecollection.com is expanding rapidly, doubling its revenue in London alone this year. To keep up with the pace of demand the company is replacing its older vehicles with brand new refuse vehicles from Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS).
RVS has a service called RediTruck, which provides brand new, ready for work vehicles, available immediately, from stock. The vehicles can be purchased outright or through a contract hire agreement.
Paul Brown, Commercial Director, RVS said: “It’s great to be working with wastecollection.com, not just providing them with vehicles but also taking care of those vehicles to make sure they operate at their best for longer.”
A 4x2 DAF chassis with Dennis body, fitted with bin weighing from VWS, has been delivered to Wastecollection.com and the company has already placed an order for another vehicle, which is due in January.
Karol continued: “A great benefit of using RVS is that we don’t have to wait the extensive lead times of up to 9 months often required by Manufacturers. RVS has new vehicles in stock, which they can equip with whatever ancillary equipment we require, such as weighing. Their maintenance services are superb and include breakdown recovery, plus they have a big hire fleet so they can provide us with interim vehicles quickly. The standard of vehicles and customer service is excellent and they can fulfil all of our needs.”
Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS) provides the complete refuse vehicle solution supplying new, quality used and remanufactured refuse vehicles as well as a raft of support services including spare parts, finance and a hire fleet with over 55 FORS compliant vehicles, ranging from RCV’s to hook loaders, top loaders and Front-End Loaders, many bin-weighing prepared and all available for short to long-term hire. RVS’s preventative maintenance packages are popular amongst waste operators who recognise the importance of keeping their fleet in optimum working order to reduce vehicle breakdowns and avoid expensive repair bills.
