Nottingham City Homes orders 300 Citroens
26 August 2008
Nottingham City Homes has signed a solus deal to replace its entire fleet with more than 300 Citroen Dispatch and Relay vans.
The majority of the fleet will be Relay panel vans with 120PS diesel engines, but it will also include Relay tippers and dropside trucks and 100 Dispatch panel vans.
Newcastle's Springfield Motor Group are providing the vans, while leasing firm Grosvenor Contracts is dealing with the finances.
All 300-plus vans will arrive fully liveried and ready to work, as specified in the deal. All the vehicles will also be provided with Trafficmaster's smartnav and Fleet Director vehicle tracking and management technology.
The deal was agreed after Nottingham City Homes put out its fleet requirements to a Europe-wide tender. The all Citroen fleet replaces a mixed fleet of vehicles.
