Finewood Joinery has moved away from outright vehicle purchase for the first time by taking two new commercial vehicles on contact hire from Fraikin.

The 18-tonne DAF LF and 7.2-tonne Iveco Daily curtainsider replace two similar sized Mercedes-Benz Ategos in the Falkirk-based door importer and supplier’s fleet of four. Both vehicles, which will be on the road up to five days a week, feature Tekbo bodywork and technology including side and rear-view cameras.

The five-year, full-service contract hire agreement includes all servicing, as well as R&M on a collection and delivery basis via the company’s third-party service network, tyre replacement, road fund licensing and 24/7 breakdown support.

Willie Anderson, MD at Finewood Joinery, said: “Fraikin took the time to show how contract hire would offer genuine benefits for our business, which made it an easy decision for us.

“Having two brand new vehicles reflects well on us as a company, and as servicing and maintenance is also included, it’s one less thing for us to worry about.

“We worked closely with Fraikin to tailor the specs of these two new vehicles with innovations to make them as safe and efficient as possible.”
