Renault Trucks delivers exceptional reliability and highly competitive cost of ownership, says Leicestershire-based JSH Ltd. The company has taken on two new 32 tonne Range C430 8x4s with day cabs following positive experiences of both the vehicle and excellent support from local dealer, Renault Trucks Coventry.
Complete with Swadlincote Aluminium & Welding (SAW) aluminium tipper bodies, the new Range Cs join JSH’s six-strong fleet, delivering aggregates and recycled materials including sand, gravel and granite from rail heads between Leicestershire and Bedfordshire.
JSH Managing Director, John Haynes explains why he selected the Range Cs for his latest vehicles: “I’ve been very happy with the C430 I purchased last year and the two Premiums with bulk tipping trailers that we use to move grain and aggregates across the UK.
“The tipper market is highly competitive so, for operators like us, Renault Trucks delivers exceptional reliability and a highly competitive cost of ownership that makes a huge difference to bottom line profitability. A great truck with a very attractive 4-year warranty, including 2-years servicing and a competitive price, as well as first class dealer support, it was a deal that I simply couldn’t turn down.”
Ideally suited to JHS’ demanding operation working on and off-road, the robust Range Cs are equipped with Renault Trucks’ advanced 11 litre, 6-cylinder engines with engine brake and 12-speed Optidriver+ automated gearbox, which comes with off-road software as standard.
John Haynes adds: “The automated gearbox was a huge factor in the decision-making process; fuel consumption is meeting my expectations, too.”
The trucks also feature 7” navigation screen display and Ultimate leather steering wheel for additional driver comfort.
The strong relationship and convenient location of their local Renault Trucks dealer was key to JSH’s vehicle selection. John Haynes says: “If a truck is off the road, it’s a huge cost and problem to me so dealer support and back up is imperative. Our nearest Renault Trucks dealer is only 20 minutes away in Nuneaton and their parts HQ is only three miles away in Rugby, so if we need anything it’s only minutes away, all of which helps to minimise downtime and get the trucks back on the road as quickly as possible.”
