In a significant conquest deal, timber expert Anglian Timber Limited has selected the Renault Trucks Range D for its latest specialist vehicle. The 18-tonne Range D18 wide 4×2 low 280 E6, supplied by Renault Trucks Felixstowe on a 5-year full rental through BRS Ltd, is the first Renault Truck to join the 5-strong fleet, and will be used to carry custom-built roof trusses to building sites across East Anglia, Kent, Sussex, London and Oxfordshire.
Director Roger Steed said: “Delivering timber to building sites can be challenging so we needed a truck that was durable and manoeuvrable but, crucially, could comply with height restrictions on route. Renault Trucks, together with Harvey Coachbuilders, was definitely our best option; they took the time to understand our requirements and subsequently provided a truck which is perfect for our needs.”
Peter Todd, Renault Trucks Felixstowe, comments: “We are delighted that Anglian Timber has chosen the Range D for the first time, and that they are happy with the end result. As well as being an extremely robust vehicle, the Range D is designed with numerous mechanical and electrical pre-equipment to simplify the bodybuilding operation, so it’s great to hear that Harvey Coachbuilders found it so straightforward – we very much look forward to working with both companies again in the future.”
