Word-of-mouth recommendations, and a high level of service from Sparks Commercial Services and its salesmen, were key reasons why Wiltshire-based Westbrook Commercials added a new 65-tonne Renault Trucks T520 High 6x2 tag to its low-loader fleet.

The truck, which joins a fleet of eight low-loaders all plated between 60 and 80 tonnes, will be used to move new excavators across the whole of the UK for construction machinery manufacturer SANY. In April it will be joined by a further T520 High 6x2 mid-lift.

David Johnson, director at Westbrook Commercials, said: “We had some Magnums back in 2012 so we were familiar with the brand and we were hearing good reports from other local operators about the service at Sparks Commercials who are conveniently located just up the M4 from us in Swindon. We’re also hearing good things about the vehicles; we know people that have bought Renault trucks recently and they are very happy with the performance.

“The deal on the table and the overall customer service we received from the salesman, Roger Millett, was second-to-none. Roger took the time to listen to our requirements, was meticulous and changed things to ensure it was right for us. He has been brilliant; a proper salesman!”

The new T High is equipped with Renault Trucks’ Optidriver AT 2612F gearbox reinforced for heavy-duty use (XTREM) with automatic clutch and for added safety OPTIBRAKE+ with Voith Gearbox hydraulic retarder. Other equipment includes Alcoa Dura-Bright wheels, roof-mounted twin air horns and roof and side deflectors.

Meanwhile, the driver is treated to optional extras such as a luxury driver’s seat, microwave, TV, air-conditioning, multimedia touchscreen, and leather steering wheel.

“Our trucks need to be reliable and capable of delivering our customer’s machines on time so, in turn, they can get to work on their customer’s tough construction projects. We are pleased with the new vehicle and delighted we made the switch to Renault Trucks,” concluded Johnson.

  • Renault Trucks will be exhibiting at this year’s Road Transport Expo, which takes place at Stoneleigh NAEC on June 28-30. It’s FREE to attend, and registrations are now open.
