William Wilson fixed on Ryder for value and service25 February 2019

Plumbing and heating supplier William Wilson has taken delivery of two more trucks from Ryder, citing the contract hire and rental firm’s ability to deliver reliable, cost-effective service.

The Scottish operator’s latest two additions are both DAF LF150 curtainsider rigids with day cabs. Each has a purpose-built restraining system, along with 1-tonne, full-closure cantilever tail-lift with detachable safety gates, and Vehcam camera system with left-turn monitoring.

William Wilson operates 21 branches throughout Scotland: one of the new trucks is based at the Ayr branch, while the other is based at the Cumbernauld branch.

The new vehicles are carrying out multi-drop deliveries and, according to David McKissack, William Wilson’s area manager south, can clock up “some serious mileage – that’s why we like to stick with the DAFs because they’re really reliable”.

The operator has used Ryder for more than ten years for all of its 18-tonners and 7.5-tonners.

McKissack adds: “We keep coming back to Ryder for a number of reasons. We get value for money and a very good service... The proximity of the Ryder locations to our branches is also an important factor.”
