Prichards is a notable devotee of Scania
PRICHARD’S, a leading provider of construction and support services to both the private and public sectors throughout Wales, the Midlands, the South West and London boroughs, is a notable devotee of Scania.
Prichard‘s boasts a vast and specialised fleet of vehicles and experienced drivers allowing it to undertake a wide array of projects in a safe, efficient and environmental friendly manner.
Tom Prichard says: “Our 31-strong fleet of mainly Scania lorries include articulated lorries, eight-wheeled tipper lorries, a beaver tail, skip loaders and road sweepers.
“We have recently taken delivery of three additional Scania G 410CB 8X4MHZ construction vehicles, which are complete with Thompson Muckaway tipper bodies and Thompson sheeting systems which are all supplied by Keltruck Ltd.”
Prichard’s have also got six further orders secured in 2018 with Keltruck to assist their expanding business and continue to use the services of Keltruck Ltd for vehicle supply, parts, maintenance, support for Scania industrial engines and Scania finance as the relationship continues.
Tom said after the latest acquisition of a truck on hire purchase through Scania Financial Services: “Straightforward ease-of-use in dealing with Scania Finance as always - it’s just a good all-round service, which is backed up by the industry knowledge of Rob and Matt, with whom we were doing our seventh or eighth deal.”
He added: “I’m very pleased with the fuel economy on the new Scania [G 410CB 8X4MHZ] tippers that were recently supplied by Keltruck. In addition, we are seeing improved fuel economy in the Terex Finlay J-1160 stone crusher which is also conveniently powered by a Scania industrial engine.”
Prichard’s is strong on safety issues: “For added safety our vehicles have been fitted with a passenger side ‘vision door’ designed and installed by Keltruck to give the driver a valuable line of sight to potential cyclists or hazards on the nearside of the vehicle.
“In addition, the vehicles are equipped with the latest side cameras, side sensors and an audible alarm for cyclists and pedestrians when the vehicle is turning left.”
It also has a specialist eight-wheeled tipper truck which has a dual-purpose tailboard with hinged and barn-style doors in order to carry bulk loads.
Purchasing decisions are made at Prichard’s with reliability, dealer support and whole-life costs in mind.
