Marshall Truck & Van has supplied HomeServe with 16 new Mercedes-Benz vans that the company has funded through contract hire agreements with sole leasing provider Arval.
The Mercedes-Benz Dealer Network’s 24-hour maintenance and repair capability and free MobiloVan roadside assistance support, were crucial in making the decision to choose Mercedes-Benz vans, says Marshall Truck & Van.
HomeServe has now commissioned more than 150 Vito models since last year. It also took 33 larger Sprinter 314 CDIs in 2016 and has added a further 26 in 2017, with another 29 still to be delivered before the end of the year.
HomeServe Head of Fleet John Finn said: “The move to Mercedes-Benz means we can get our vehicles maintained and repaired overnight by its Dealers, while we also benefit from excellent breakdown support. This, coupled with the inherent reliability for which the Sprinter and Vito are renowned, and our engineers’ feedback, all led to us choosing to work with them.”
HomeServe runs a fleet of nearly 1,000 vans across the UK for its engineers who provide plumbing, drainage, electrics and heating services.
