FIRST RANGE T TURNS HEADS FOR GORDON HUNTER TRANSPORT LTD

Following exemplary customer service from Renault Trucks, Fife-based general haulier, Gordon Hunter Transport Ltd, has selected the Range T as the latest vehicle to join its fleet. The 26 tonne Range T430 6x2 rigid with sleeper cab was supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland and is fitted with a 31’ fully galvanised curtainsided body by Lothian Vehicle bodybuilders. It also features a 2 tonne Dhollandia Cantilever tail lift, which forms a complete rear closure on the vehicle, as well as internal load restraints and v-groove side rave.

The new Range T, used for general haulage nationwide as well as palletised deliveries for shop re-fitters and wine and spirits distribution across central Scotland, has photographs of owner Gordon Hunter’s young daughters Cali and Ellie, who feature on all his trucks.

Gordon explains why he opted for the Range T: “I’ve run Renault Midlums in the past and had no trouble at all. I’ve also received first class service from Renault Trucks Scotland so moving to the new Euro 6 vehicles was a logical next step for me. Lothian Vehicle Bodybuilders have also been fantastic and I’d like to thank Gordon Nisbet in particular.  The new Range T has already done 14,500km in 4 weeks including runs to Southampton, Swansea and Inverness and the fuel consumption has been an impressive 12.5mpg which I expect will improve further as the engine runs in.”

Gordon continues: “I’m just one of the boys and very hands on in the business. I get stuck in and drive the trucks myself - my favourite motto ‘Nothing will work unless you do’ is liveried on the new vehicle. I can honestly say that the new Range T goes like a dream and it’s attracting loads of attention from drivers on deliveries.  Other hauliers are stopping me to ask about the truck and I often hear the words ‘nice wagon’.  All I can say is wow, what a truck, it’s a real show stopper and I absolutely love it.”
