Scotland’s Ian Craig (Haulage) Ltd. has taken delivery of seven new Renault Premium 460.25 6×2 TAG axle tractor units with Privilege cabs and one new Renault Premium Lander 460.26 6×2 TAG axle rigid chassis, with rear mounted crane.
Supplied through Renault Trucks distributor, Border Trucks, they are the first Renaults to join a 55-strong fleet of Scania and MAN. The new Renault Premium trucks will be used to pull the company’s fleet of timber and brick & block carrying trailers for clients in the construction industry. All of the trucks will operate on a short and long haul basis across Scotland, the North and Midlands. Kevin Craig, Director, Ian Craig (Haulage) Ltd., says: “As a haulage company, the most important thing we need to meet our customers’ expectations is reliable, cost effective trucks. We have been keeping a close eye on reliability and fuel consumption within our existing fleet so decided to give Renault a chance.”
He continues: “We have only had the trucks a few weeks but we haven’t been disappointed. Fuel consumption is impressive – proving to be as competitive as the most fuel efficient of the other marques on our fleet. In addition, driver feedback is good; service levels excellent and all the Renault Premiums have proved to be reliable so far.
