Southampton firms stay loyal to Citroën for van fleets

Two Southampton companies have renewed their fleet deals for Citroën Berlingo vans, based on the vehicles’ load space, low running costs and proven reliability.

Both consignments of vans have been supplied through local dealer Wilmoths Southampton

Supplied under the firms’ long-running partnerships with local dealer Wilmoths Southampton, the new vehicles will be used to support Rigfone Electrics Limited and Whelan Pest Prevention Limited in their day-to-day operations.

Rigfone Electrics Limited, an electrical contracting company, has taken delivery of another four Berlingo BlueHDi 1000 M Enterprise vans, which will be run alongside its existing five from a previous agreement.

Director Bob Aslett said: “The work we do is varied and challenging at times, so we need vehicles capable of any task. For years we’ve found Citroën vans to be best suited to our needs, so there was only one place to call when it came to adding more vehicles to our growing fleet.”

Whelan Pest Prevention Limited’s vehicles joins its existing two Berlingo vans in 100 S&S manual XL 950 Enterprise spec, taking its total fleet to five.

Director Sean Whelan commented: “Reliability and low running costs were at the top of our priority list, alongside load capabilities and practicality. The Berlingo Van suits our needs perfectly, which made our choice very easy this year.”

Simon Peacock, Wilmoths Southampton’s local business development manager, said: “We’ve been supplying both businesses for years so it was fantastic to see them returning to us once again when it came time to renew their fleets. Our award-winning van fleet continues to offer all the solutions to both businesses, which have very stringent requirements on what they need from their vehicles.”
