Lloyds Bank has deployed the first of eight new mobile branches to serve local communities.
Supplied by Lex Autolease, the first six units are based on a medium wheelbase Iveco chassis cab with six-speed gearbox and a Euro6 engine. The chassis and branch unit were assembled by Doncaster-based vehicle specialists Cartwright Conversions. As part of the conversion, a wheelchair access lift has been incorporated into the entrance step-well.
The first mobile branches will be operated by G4S with ongoing fleet management and maintenance provided by BT Fleet and will serve local communities in and around Carmarthen and Ebbw Vale in South Wales, St Austell in Cornwall, Totnes in Devon, Chester-le-Street in County Durham and Cirencester in the Cotswolds. The vehicles expand the existing fleet of eight units operated in the Bank of Scotland network.
