Service fleet raises the bar with Vauxhall Vivaro21 April 2015

Platform Service and Repair (PSR) has taken delivery of 23 Vauxhall Vivaros for its mobile engineering team, which provides UK-wide support to plant hire companies with access platform fleets.

All long-wheelbase Vivaro Sportive CDTi 120 bi-turbo models, they have been racked out to PSR's specifications, with the centre front seat folding flat to give desk space.

The vehicles have LED running lights, colour-coded bumpers and wing mirrors, and reversing sensors. Other features include cruise control, sports seats, Bluetooth and air conditioning.

Greenhous Vauxhall, of Telford, is leasing the vans and racking to PSR as a complete package. They replace a mixed fleet of Vauxhall and Mercedes LCVs.

Kevin Shadbolt, operations director of IAPS Group, which owns PSR, says driver comfort was a key factor for the Vivaro's selection.

"The Sportive drives like a car and the cab has all the modern creature comforts that our drivers wanted.

"Fuel consumption is also markedly better, which is important when your fleet does well over half a million miles a year. Also this higher specification model has a higher residual value, which benefits us on leasing costs," he adds.
