With pic L to R: Graham Waters, Greenhous DAF with Amanda Brown, Business Development Director, CTS
Municipal Vehicle Hire company Collett Transport Services (CTS) has received an early Christmas gift in the form of two new DAF CF 6x2 rear-steer RCVs with Dennis Eagle trade waste bodywork ready for hire over the festive season and beyond. The 26-tonne DAF CFs were supplied by DAF Dealer, Greenhous DAF in Shrewsbury.
The vehicles mark the end of a year of significant investment and fleet expansion at CTS, and the beginning of a new era of growth into commercial waste collection. The company has spent over £2.5m on new hire vehicles and now boasts a fleet of over 165 vehicles, including refuse vehicles, caged tippers, hook loaders, skip loaders and sweepers.
Bob Sweetland, Managing Director, CTS: “We are committed to investing in only the highest quality and specification of vehicles. These vehicles are suitable for trade waste collections, which is an area of the business we intend to grow in the future.”
The vehicles, which are now ready to hire, comprise DAF CF 290 FAN 6x2 rear steer chassis and Dennis Eagle Olympus 23 bodies fitted with Beta 2 Lip lifts. DAF Trucks’ CF 6x2 chassis continues its dominance of the municipal market, offering class-leading manoeuvrability and a range of axle configurations to suit the ever-increasing complexities of urban operations.
“The DAF brand is very strong in this sector,” said Graham Waters, Senior Sales Executive at Greenhaus DAF, “and, in partnership with Dennis Eagle, we were able to provide an exacting specification for CTS. Drivers of these trucks,” he said, “will appreciate excellent handling characteristics, a large, comfortable cab and state-of-the-art waste collection equipment.”
CTS offers flexible and competitive refuse vehicle hire packages for the short or long term, and is part of contract hire and fleet management company Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS).
Continued Bob Sweetland: “We have had a record-breaking year in terms of retaining existing customers and also winning new business. We are looking forward to continuing our growth next year.”
