J W MORRISON HAULAGE DRIVERS ARE “CONVERTS TO RENAULT TRUCKS”
"I’ve always found the Renault Trucks’ sales and support staff very helpful, and this, together with a strong aftersales support package from the dealer, helped to clinch the deal.”
One of Scotland’s leading quarry, coal and road salt bulk hauliers, J W Morrison Haulage Contractors, has selected Renault Trucks ahead of MAN, Scania and Mercedes as prestigious replacement vehicles for its 23-strong fleet. Two 44 tonne range T460 6x2 tag-axle units have just gone on the road, both fitted with front, side and rear Smart Witness cameras, part of the company’s commitment to safer driving to protect vulnerable road users. The vehicles, in J W Morrison’s distinctive metallic brown and cream livery, will travel the length and breadth of the UK on seasonal tipper work, delivering animal feed and road-gritting salt in winter and employed in quarry work during the summer.
J W Morrison’s owner and partner, Joe Morrison, says: “I selected the new range Ts as we have had very favourable experiences with Renault Premiums and I’d heard good things about the new Euro 6 vehicles and the improvements that have been made to the range. I’ve always found the Renault Trucks’ sales and support staff very helpful, and this, together with a strong aftersales support package from the dealer, helped to clinch the deal.”
Joe continues: “Following an introduction to the new Range Ts at Renault’s launch event, our drivers put a demonstrator through its paces. They liked it so much they have been converted to Renault Trucks and I’ve had great feedback about the cab from them; there’s definitely more space and they particularly like the layout inside. As our drivers are out on the road on long distances, up to 4 nights a week, it is vital that they are happy and comfortable and we are confident that the new Range Ts will perform in all areas.”
