Scania Truck Rental powers on.
The Scania Truck Rental business is powering ahead, with a wider range of vehicles now available.
When Scania Truck rental was launched in the latter part of 2010, the fleet initially consisted of V8-powered R 560 Highline cabs. Soon after G-series prime movers were added. Now in May 2011, a wider choice of Scania configurations is available.
The Scania Truck Rental Fleet now welcomes P 280 and P 320 6X2 refrigerated rigid chassis vehicles, equipped with Thermoking fridge units. These vehicles can also be fitted with a tail lift if required.
A further 12 vehicles in all will join the fleet in May, so the complete Scania Truck Rental fleet will now comprise P 280, P 320, P 400, G 440, R 480, and two V8-powered options: the
R 560 and the R 620.
Scania Truck Rental is already taking bookings for anticipated peak demand later in the year as well as for the Christmas season.
To date, customers have been drawn from a wide range of operators and business areas, from owner/drivers to national fleets.
One of the benefits of the rental fleet is it grants customers who are not yet Scania owners the opportunity to experience the product, all of which feature Scania’s fatigue-reducing Opticruise automated gear changing system, available with or without a clutch pedal.
Long-term rental clients also gain access to Scania’s in-house driver training programme free of charge, which aims to enhance driver efficiency and safety.
“We are aiming for complete customer satisfaction with the Scania Truck Rental programme,” says Anna-Marie Taylor, Scania Truck Rental Manager.
“Overall so far, the customer response has been extremely positive, and the fact that we have broadened the range of vehicles available in such a short space of time is a clear indication that we are meeting a demand in the market for new, high quality Euro 5 emission compliant vehicles. With additional vehicles now available, and the convenience of our flexible rental periods, Scania Truck Rental will go from strength to strength,” she said.
