Hyvacare benefits are black and white for Zebra 06 July 2012
"Our trucks operate in one of the most arduous sectors of the whole road transport industry. Downtime is very expensive. So why would I not want HyvaCare to provide service cover for my skiploaders?"
That's the straightforward view of Roger Bird, director of Taurus Waste Recycling, trading as Zebra Waste.
Part of the 40 strong Taurus fleet, Zebra operates both Hyva skiploaders and hookloaders working in a wide range of waste, demolition and recycling duties. And key to the company's ability to provide efficient and reliable service, says Bird, is Hyva's fixed price R&M scheme that he believes minimises unplanned downtime.
"Hyva comes down and goes right through the vehicles every three months," says Bird. "Any parts that need routine replacement are covered by the fixed price contract. If we get any unforeseen issues, we just phone and they get it sorted. Hyva's speed of response is excellent."
What works for Zebra's Hyva bodywork also works for its chassis too, with all the company's 4x2 and 8x4 Axor models being similarly covered with R&M contracts from Mercedes-Benz, and all work carried out by local dealer Pentagon.
"The Hyva skiploader is an excellent product," continues Bird. "It's tough, well made, reliable and easy to operate. Matched with the Mercedes chassis, it's the ideal combination for our needs."
