Renault wins on price for skiploader chassis23 March 2022

West Yorkshire-based Pudsey Plant Hire Ltd has announced the addition of the first Renault truck to its skip hire fleet.

Supplied by JDS Truck and Van, the Renault Trucks D18 High 4x2 with day cab is fitted with Harsh HS14T 2019 skip loader equipment, remote control and Skip N Go electric operation sheeting system.

The new D18 has been purchased for skip hire work across Leeds and the surrounding areas, and in readiness to meet demand for garden spring cleans for both private and building clients during the busy Easter period.

Pudsey Plant Hire owner, Paul Vipond, explains why he opted for the Renault Trucks D and local dealer JDS Truck and Van: “When our previous manufacturer significantly increased their prices twice in the space of three months, I decided to shop around. After another skip hire company recommended Renault Trucks to me, I contacted JDS Trucks in Leeds and since arranging the purchase of the new D18, we haven’t looked back.”

Vipon continues: “We’ve also taken out Renault Trucks’ finance and a maintenance contract with JDS to provide total peace of mind.”

Pudsey Plant Hire’s new D18 is fitted with the Optitronic 6AS 1000 automated gearbox and clutch as well as enhanced safety features such as the ABS, Hill Start Assist, Electronic Stability Control and Emergency Brake Assist and passenger side vision door with lower tinted window.

Introducing a new manufacturer to a fleet can be an apprehensive time, but Pudsey’s driver was soon won over, as Paul explains: “Initially, our driver was quite sceptical; he has been driving a competitor vehicle for many years and was happy with the arrangement. After a few hours behind the wheel of the D18 that all changed, and he’s now been converted to Renault Trucks.”
