The shortlist of replacement vans for Marks Electricals wasn’t very long and after 15 years of reliable service from Mercedes vans, the firm has opted to use the Mercedes Sprinter.
The Leicester-based company had enjoyed years of cost-effective service from the vans and essentially wanted to continue doing so.
The latest addition to the firm’s fleet of vehicles are 15 new Mercedes Sprinter 313 CDI vans with the long chassis cabs.
The new vans are now hard at work delivering a range of household electrical items and white goods on Sprinters that have been fitted with lightweight Ecofont Luton bodies and tail lifts.
Mercedes Sprinter really will deliver
The firm’s managing director, Mark Smithson, said: “The new Sprinters have replaced older versions which had been extremely reliable.
“We have used Mercedes vehicles for 15 years and they are consistently dependable.
“A key element for our service is that our deliveries arrive when they are promised and the Mercedes Sprinters help to do that.”
Mr Smithson went on to praise the build quality of the Mercedes Sprinter along with the firm’s roadside assistance Service24h though the firm has very little use for it.
