Cool £2m of Isuzus to VMS
Isuzu Truck has supplied 37 new 7.5-tonne refrigerated rigids to VMS Fleet Management Ltd’s rental division, VMS Vehicle Hire.
The N75.190s, worth over £2 million and supplied direct from Isuzu, come with a mixture of Coolertech and Polar multi-temperature bodies, all with GAH refrigeration systems. They feature tuckaway tail lifts with a mix of double and triple rear access doors for access to the fridge section, and a pallet-width nearside door into the frozen section. They are now helping to cope with the hot bits of this summer’s weather extremes, operating out VMS rental sites across the country.
VMS Fleet Management managing director, Martin James “This £2m Isuzu truck deal is a significant investment for VMS, however, for refrigerated rental operation at 7.5 tonnes, the Isuzus have excellent payload and are proven to be very reliable in operation. The decision to further invest in the Isuzu marque within our rental fleet is based on our overall previous experience where we have found them to be robust and reliable operators.”
“Over the years we have also experienced an excellent service offering from Isuzu, through their strong nationwide dealer network support. This is vital for our rental business, especially in busy periods, and in particular with their ability to accommodate out of hours service work.”
2015 DAF LF210 - Used Truck Deal of the Day
This Euro-6 2015 DAF LF210 has only completed 95,000kms which is incredibly hard to believe. But according to PM Commercials, it’s true.
This 65-plate 12-tonne box van on rear mounted air suspension features a three-seater cab, automatic gearbox, air conditioning, while the box measures 24ft 2in by 6ft 11in and has a roller shutter door.
Wisadeck boards provide the flooring and there’s a Dhollandia one tonne alloy tuck-away tail lift. The DAF also has an MoT until July 2020, and did we mention that it’s only done 95,000kms? That’s right, just 95,000kms.
