Mercedes Citan: the agile solution for telecoms business15 August 2016
Telecoms and IT business QDOS Communications has taken delivery of five Mercedes-Benz Citan vans – its first Mercedes vehicles and a departure from its previous rental strategy.
Supplied by dealer Orwell Truck & Van, the black Citan 111 CDIs are all long-bodied models and are supplied on Mercedes’ Agility finance arrangement.
“We’d previously been renting our vans,” says Paul Deeks, technical director of QDOS. “But the Agility finance agreement arranged by Orwell is so keenly priced that we’re paying substantially less for our new Citans than we were for our previous, non-Mercedes-Benz vehicles.”
With Agility, the vehicles have a guaranteed future value: at the end of the term, the customer can choose to pay a lump sum and keep the vehicle, extend the deal by spreading the balloon payment over a further term, or return it without any further obligation (with the exception of excess mileage or damage beyond normal wear and tear). Deeks adds: “Our business is growing fast so we decided to review the van operation to make sure we were best placed to meet future needs... The Citans have been well received by our engineers, who appreciate their comfort and style, and are also proving very economical – the lads are definitely making fewer visits to filling stations than they did previously.”
