BRS Ltd., one of the UK’s leading suppliers of commercial vehicle contract hire solutions, has won a contract that sees Trans Haul Europe Ltd. take the first Renaults into its 30-strong mixed fleet of Scania, Iveco, Volvo and DAF. Trans Haul Europe, the ‘Total Supply Chain Solution’ has taken delivery of six Renault Premium 460 6x2 tractor units, through Renault Trucks Chiltern. The Euro 5 EEV trucks, which have the Optidriver+ automated gearbox and Privilege high roof sleeper cabs, have been wrapped in the Trans Haul livery. The Renault Premiums have been supplied through BRS under a full four year contract hire package at 120,000km per year.
The new Renault Premiums will be undertaking general haulage, transporting predominantly FMCG loads nationwide. The vehicles have all been specified with sleeper cabs as they will be out on the road for five or six days at a time.
BRS arranged finance for the new vehicles and will manage repair, maintenance and all legal compliance for a fixed single monthly payment.
Nigel Machado, Managing Director, Trans Haul Europe Ltd. says: “We are really pleased with the package supplied by BRS which, not only represents great value for money, but enables us to manage all our costs in advance. Our fixed budget includes tyres, servicing, MOTs and even road tax, so we don’t have to worry about any additional costs every month.”
He continues: “We decided to move to Renault following a trial with a Renault Premium demonstrator, which gave excellent fuel results. The vehicle was returning 9.3mpg which is much better than any of the other trucks on our fleet. We are now looking to replace some of our rigid trucks and thanks to both the excellent service from BRS and the success of the Renault product we will be working with BRS to take more Renaults in the near future.”
Paul Ralph, Sales Manager, BRS Ltd., says: “We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious, blue chip company as Trans Haul Europe. We worked closely with Renault Trucks UK and Renault Trucks Chiltern to put together a competitive package for them.”
He continues: “Trans Haul Europe will be benefitting from the excellent new repair and maintenance facilities at Renault Truck Commercials’ recently opened main dealership in Northampton. With its four bay workshop, dedicated tacho bay and 24/7 support, we are able to offer the best possible all round service to Trans Haul Europe.”
