CENTURIANS: Vauxhall top the ton with Movano deal
National Windscreens, the UK’s largest independent vehicle glass replacement company, with an additional order of 30 vans, have taken their Movano fleet beyond 100.
Vauxhall now has more than a 50% share of National Windscreens’ fitting fleet .
The 30 additional L1 H1 Movanos are powered by Vauxhall’s 2.3 CDTi engine, producing 100PS with fuel economy of 36.2mpg.
The liveried vans have been racked out internally to provide specific storage facilities for safely transporting windscreens up to the size of those fitted to the largest HGVs on the road.
Phil Lomas, Director of National Windscreens, said: “We originally ordered 24 Movano vans in mid-2012 and very quickly ordered 48 more in 2013 as we were impressed by the heavy-duty components and durability of the van.
“Many of the original vans have already covered over 50,000 miles and have proven reliable, economical and a very big success with our mobile windscreen technicians who are using them.
“Durability and premature failure were major issues for us with our previous van fleet, significantly adding to the running costs of our vehicles, something that has not been an issue with Vauxhall.”
Richard Collier, National Commercial Vehicle and B2B Sales Manager at Vauxhall, added: “It is great to hear that a valued customer has ordered yet more vehicles due to satisfaction of existing Vauxhalls on its fleet.
“The addition of these Movano vans will allow National Windscreens to reduce the running costs of its fleet while increasing its reliability and efficiency.”
