B Jay Haulage moves to Renault Lander over Scania

20th October 2009 Print
Renault Lander Shropshire based haulage company, B Jay Haulage, has taken delivery of a new Renault Premium Lander 410.32 with insulated tipper body, through Renault Trucks Midlands. The truck, which is fitted with a retarder and Optidriver + gearbox, is the first vehicle of its type to be built on a Renault chassis and was chosen by the company over its usual Scania.

The Renault Premium Lander will be used to transport aggregate and tarmac, mainly in the local area of Shropshire, but also on a nationwide basis. Shaun Coombes, owner, B Jay Haulage, says: “Our usual vehicle of choice has, in the past, been Scania; however we felt that the Renault Premium Lander offered fantastic value for money – it is a high spec., good quality vehicle and we are very pleased with our choice.

With the type of work the truck will be undertaking, fuel consumption is an important consideration for us and, so far, the Renault Lander has proved both economical and reliable. Feedback from the driver has been that this is a good quality, comfortable vehicle which handles well, both when empty and fully loaded and that the Renault Lander would certainly be his vehicle of choice over the Scania.

We have also found that the Lander is a great off road truck and copes easily with the loose surfaces of both sand and stone quarries. Its automatic gearbox means that it is a relaxing and enjoyable truck to drive, whatever the conditions. All in all the new Renault Lander has proven to be a ‘revelation’ to our, former Scania, driver and far superior to other vehicles of its type.”

B Jay Haulage is an independent family business established over 15 years ago by present owner Shaun Coombes. The company works out of its headquarters in Market Drayton Shropshire.
