Castelan Group, which is headquartered in Weston-super-Mare, is operating the short wheelbase, low-roof Trafics in Business+ trim line with the ENERGY dCi 120 1.6-litre Twin Turbo diesel engine on four-year/100,000-mile contract hire with maintenance agreements.
Additionally, Days Fleet is providing a range of other services including a 24/7 driver helpline and its short-term vehicle hire solution Flexi Hire. Castelan Group will also benefit from all vans being fitted with Fleet Monitor, Days Fleet’s mileage capture and fault diagnosis tool which plugs in to each van’s on-board diagnostics (OBD) port.
Castelan Group already operated a solus Renault van fleet and the company remained loyal to the French marque after putting the order out to tender and considering light commercials from three manufacturers.
The vans were 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 new Trafics are being used by Castelan Group’s furniture network care technicians to visit customers in their homes to rectify issues with varying types of furniture and flooring.
Commenting on the new contract, Days Fleet director, Aled Williams, said: “ As reflected with our recent name change to Days Fleet from Days Contract Hire, the company is far more than a vehicle leasing provider. That fact is underlined by, for example, Castelan Group being one of the largest fleets to take our Fleet Monitor product.”
