Supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland, the Range T480.26 tractors come with full R&M contracts; they are coupled with refrigerated trailers and operating out of McLaughlan’s Perth depot.
Driver acceptance was crucial with the introduction of a new marque, as McLaughlan’s director George McLaughan explains: “We had a Range T on an extensive demo trial for a week, with five drivers given the truck and asked to provide feedback.
“All five were extremely complimentary and were really impressed with the vision and driving position.”
The dealer, too, played a key part in securing the contract, he adds: “The Renault Trucks team in Scotland really took the time to understand our business and they put forward the most competitive deal and offered best value overall.
“The trucks have only been on the road for a few weeks, but so far I’m very happy. It’s too early to talk about fuel performance, but initial indications are good and we expect they will improve further as the vehicles loosen up.”
