As part of its management of 3,000 furniture and electrical claims each week, Castelan Group's new Renault Trafics will be used by its Furniture Network Care Technicians to visit customers in their homes to rectify issues with varying types of furniture and flooring. The company reports that the Trafic’s space-optimising design is particularly beneficial, with ample room for the spare parts, consumables and cleaning machines that are necessary for its technicians to resolve many issues on a first-time fix basis.
Castelan Group ordered its short wheelbase, low-roof Trafics in Business+ specification with the ENERGY dCi 120 1.6-litre Twin Turbo diesel engine, with fuel economy of up to 47.9 mpg being a key factor in its purchasing decision.
Building on the Business specification, which offers DAB radio with Bluetooth, Electronic Stability Control with Hill Start Assist and Grip Xtend, electric front windows and remote central locking; the Business+ trim level also adds a smartphone dock, passenger bench seat with underseat storage, fold down middle passenger seat with detachable A4 clipboard and laptop storage, body-coloured front bumper, door rail and rear tail light column, full steel bulkhead with load-through facility, and wide view mirror.
Castelan Group's Trafics have been further enhanced with the R-Link integrated 7″ touchscreen multimedia system, which includes sat nav and reverse parking camera system. The company also ordered the additional factory options of a 68mph speed limiter and metallic silver paint.
Leased via Days Fleet and supplied by City Motors, Bristol – one of 40 nationwide Renault Pro+ dealerships that are specially equipped to cater for the requirements of business customers – the Trafics come with four-year/100,000-mile warranty and four years’ roadside assistance.
