The decision came following an impromptu sleepover in the cab of a Range T at Truckfest, as Jones explains: “I was actually sleeping in a tent at Truckfest, so when a member of the Renault Trucks team said I could spend the night in the cab of a Range T, I jumped at the chance.
“I couldn’t believe how comfortable it was; it was better than my own bed at home! Seriously, though, I was so impressed by the Range T and the overall package on offer that I decided to bite the bullet and buy my first-ever Renault trucks.”
Supplied by dealer JDS Truck & Van Blackburn, the new vehicles join Express Freight’s 95-strong fleet.
“I know that drivers are getting pickier in terms of what vehicles they want to drive, but my boys have been bowled over by the new Range Ts which are currently being used for pallet and chilled distribution,” says Jones.
“That’s why I’m introducing a reward system for drivers that stay with us for a certain period of time and consistently do a good job – I will start buying new Range Ts for them to drive.”
