Two new Renault T520 High tractors for GIF Transport and Logistics

Aberdeenshire-based haulage specialist GIF Transport and Logistics, has taken delivery of it first ever Renault trucks.

The two Renault Trucks T520 High 6x2 pushers, which are additions to the haulier’s 14-strong tractor fleet, were supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland.

GIF Transport and Logistics’ director Brian Pirie cites vehicle design improvements and a comprehensive dealer back up service as key reasons for the purchase.

He said: “The bulk of our fleet is with a competitor manufacturer, but I know the salesman at Renault Trucks Scotland, Keith Johnston, and he’s been knocking on my door for a few years trying to persuade me to try Renault trucks. Due to an increase in demand for our services we are getting busier, so the time was right to add two new vehicles.

“With all the updates and upgrades, including the impressive steering wheel modification, the T520 Highs are totally different trucks and, as I needed a benchmark to compare the rest of the fleet, I decided to take on a demo vehicle. The T520 High slotted seamlessly into our operation and, following this successful trial, we placed the order with Renault Trucks Scotland.”

The pair have been specified with luxury driver’s seats, leather steering wheels, lightbars, auto lighting and windscreen wiping, multimedia screens, ROADPAD+, fixed roof air deflectors and two side deflectors.

They have been supplied on five-year Renault Trucks Excellence R&M packages, with all work carried out by Renault Trucks approved dealer Alex Aiken in Aberdeen.

Pirie added: “The Excellence package gives us total piece of mind that our vehicles are being maintained to the highest possible standards and that we will not receive any surprises when it comes to the cost of repairs.”

They will be predominantly be used in the oil and gas industry in Scotland as well as international work across Europe.
