Supplied by Renault Trucks Chiltern, the London-based operator’s new additions include a 3.5-tonne Master 3T5C curtainsider, three Range D7.5 4x2 dropsiders, four Range D12 4x2 dropsiders with rear-mounted Fassi F85B cranes and seven 26-tonne Range C320 2.3m 6x2 dropsiders with rear-mounted Fassi F135A cranes.
The latest order also includes two Range T460 6x2 tractors, from Renault’s used trucks range.
Martin Moran, purchasing director at MP Moran and Sons, says: “From zero Renault trucks in 2010 to 25 LGV and 15 Masters in 2019, the company has made an impressive mark, with minimal downtime a crucial factor in our decision... and we’ve noticed some significant technical improvements that work well for our business.”
As a FORS Gold operator, vehicle compliance and safety features were also a key factor, adds Moran: “We need vehicles that can go everywhere and, with the new trucks, we can get into pretty much every site in town as they are fully compliant.”
He adds: “All the new trucks have been specified with the latest safety technology, including lane departure warning systems as standard... They all meet the London FORS specification including vision doors, cameras and audible sensors. In addition, the new trucks have been fitted with independent handrails for when the driver is working at the rear of the vehicle to reduce the possibility of a fall, all of which has made it easy for us to swap over to Renault Trucks.”
Routine maintenance is carried out in-house at MP Moran’s Watford workshop, with “first class” warranty and technical support from the dealer.
