IMPRESSED BY LYON FACTORY TOUR, KAREN YUILL RECOVERY SWITCHES TO RENAULT TRUCKS

Karen Yuill Recovery Ltd, switched to Renault Trucks for its latest fleet additions.

Following a tour of Renault Trucks’ state-of-the-art factory in Lyon, France, Karen Yuill Recovery Ltd, switched to Renault Trucks for its latest fleet additions. The Hamilton-based light and commercial vehicle recovery specialists have taken delivery of a 40-tonne Range T430 4x2 tractor unit with Night & Day cab and Renault Trucks Master L1 H1, both supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland.

The tractor unit, on a 36-month contract hire through BRS Ltd, joins Karen Yuill Recovery’s latest business venture, a multi-car transporter carrying vehicles involved in road traffic accidents for insurance companies. The Renault Master operates as a road-side service van, repairing customer’s vehicles.

Karen Yuill Recovery’s Director, Willie Kerr, explains: “I was so impressed by what I saw on the factory tour that I placed an order for a Range T and Master Van. The efficiency, build quality as well as the testing prior to the vehicles going on the road gave me the utmost confidence that they were the right trucks for our business.”

Willie continues: “The new Range T has been brilliant and the driver’s love it, especially the comfort and the ‘fancy toys’, and it’s proving itself well on economy too. And the service from Renault Trucks Scotland and BRS Ltd has been great; they’ve been on top of it all the time dealing with any maintenance efficiency and promptly. The Master has been tremendous as well, it’s never coughed or caused an issue. I am really happy I switched to Renault Trucks!”

Calum Aitken, Renault Trucks Scotland, comments on the deal: “I am delighted that Karen Yuill Recovery saw for themselves all the hard work and dedication that goes into manufacturing Renault Trucks. We understand that our customers need robust vehicles that won’t let them down, so it’s great to hear that the new vehicles have been proving themselves on the road, too. We look forward to working with them on any future vehicle requirements.”
