CTS buys and redesigns five new service vans

Published:  30 December, 2016

Municipal vehicle hire company Collett Transport Services (CTS) has purchased five new engineer service vans to replenish the current fleet and strengthen its workshop and field repairs provision.

CTS managing director Bob Sweetland said: ‘We are committed to investing in new vehicles, both hire stock and our own service vehicles, which are crucial in helping us to deliver the highest standards of service to our customers. We have taken this opportunity to redesign the internal fit out of the vehicles for optimum efficiency, organisation and to meet best health and safety practice.’

The vehicles, which are all Mercedes Sprinter 314 CDI 143PS with medium wheelbase and high-top, were provided by Rygor and the internal racking work was carried out by System Edstrom. The new vehicles will be used by mobile engineers and workshop-based technicians for repairs and servicing work.

Gloucestershire-based CTS recently opened a new depot in Brackley in the West Midlands. With a five-bay, fully-equipped workshop, the new premises will provide a hub from where vehicles will be collected, delivered, maintained and serviced.

CTS is part of Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS) and offers flexible and competitive refuse vehicle hire packages for the short or long term.
