Nationwide removals company, White & Company has successfully acquired a fleet of six lightweight low floor Luton vans, fit to the Boxer Euro 6 specification, as the firm looks to step up its national operation.
The low floor Luton vans, which are manufactured by Peugeot, are the latest in a long line of quality light commercial vehicles popular with the removals industry.
Each van comes with an uprated heavy-duty torsion bar to aid suspension, two rear LED cargo lighting, a high view reversing camera with dash mount, built in Sat Nav and rear parking sensors.
The vans have been bespoke designed to fit the company’s red and white colour scheme with the White & Company crest and British Association of Removers logo emblazoned on the side.
They are fitted with the latest fuel saving technology in the form of BlueHDi diesel engines that give combined cycle fuel economy of up to 47mpg.
Using this technology emissions of CO2 are cut by as much as 30g/km to 154g/km in the same mid-range version.
The Botley-based operator’s group fleet manager, Lynne Snow says the commercial vans were chosen because of their lower weight, improved fuel economy and excellent safety specs.
“It’s such a good-sized, practical vehicle and you can still get quite a lot in them. They are also low at the back which means it’s safer and easier for our crews to step on and off the back.”
Another added benefit of the light-weight vans is that drivers do not require a HGV licence to drive them, something that gives the company more flexibility, says Lynne.
She added: “You can drive these vehicles on a usual drivers’ licence which really frees up the availability of staff to drive them.”
