BUMPER: 224 new VWs for Lanarkshire council

Volkswagen are to provide 224 brand-new commercial vehicles to North Lanarkshire Council.

The bumper deal, which includes Caddy, Transporter and Crafter panel models, will mean almost 45% of the authority’s van fleet are VWs.

A Crafter Luton van with built-in tail-lift has also been acquired.

Kenneth Wilson, Head of Land Services at North Lanarkshire Council, said: “We needed to replace a significant proportion of our van fleet in line with our vehicle replacement programme, and I’m pleased to say that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has been successful in winning the majority of the business.

“What tipped the balance in their favour is the fact that their products are so flexible in terms of allowing us to customise them to meet our needs.

“Similarly, they have extremely strong residual values compared to the rest of the market, which mean the vans are very good value for us.

“The Volkswagen vans that have arrived so far have been a welcome addition to the fleet and feedback from our drivers has been very positive.”

Alastair Hemmings, National Fleet Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK, added: “We are delighted that North Lanarkshire Council has decided to convert nearly half of its fleet to Volkswagen after trialling a small number of our vans.

“The power of our residual values means we are highly competitive and able to offer our customers outstanding value for money.”
