Border Trucks has supplied eight C430 to Explore Transport, the first Renaults on its 40-strong truck fleet.

The 8x4s, which are a mix of five Day Cabs, two Day & Night Cabs and one High Sleeper, all feature 8cu m McPhee concrete mixer bodies. They will be used to deliver ready mix concrete to various customers across HS2, in addition to being available for general spot hire across the UK. A further four C430s with Day and Night Cabs are on order for delivery later this year.

Commenting on the decision to purchase its first Renaults, head of mixers and heavy haulage divisions at Explore Plant and Transport Solutions John Whitehurst said: “When making any decision around new trucks we are always focusing on three key elements: driver experience, reliability and back up service. When we considered the requirements for these trucks and the nature of the work they are going to be doing, we felt the Renault Trucks option offered the best overall solution.”

“We worked closely with our customers to understand their requirements and the environments in which they will be operating. Once we had a good understanding of this, it allowed us to choose a vehicle type that would match these needs. We felt that the Range C models were the best fit along with offering a high standard of driver comfort and safety.”

Renault Trucks will be exhibiting at Road Transport Expo at NAEC Stoneleigh (30 June to 2 July). Register now for FREE
