The first-class service received from the Renault Trucks agent in Edinburgh with his previous truck prompted John Vannet – an owner-driver for Breedon Northern – to take delivery of a 32-tonne Range C430.32 8x4 R E6.

“I really liked the Lander, which I ran for 5 years, and the first-class service I’ve received from Renault Trucks agent David Philp Commercials was key to me choosing the brand again,” said John. “This, combined with a decent payload around the 20 tonne mark, meant it was a straightforward decision to choose the Range C for my replacement vehicle.”

Supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland, the Range C is equipped with Weightlifter Smoothline insulated 22’ tipping body, Edbro tipping gear and PM1300 load cells with reverse and loading camera.

Along with Kelsa light bars front, top and rear, 2 roof-mounted air horns and Alcoa aluminium wheels, John also specified the Range C for optimum comfort with heated seats, one touch electric windows, air conditioning and leather steering wheel with cruise control.

“Such a large proportion of my life is spent on the road so I went for some nice optional extras to make life more comfortable. As well as being a great performer, the extra spot lights and The Scottish Saltire on the cover of the tipper body make it a real head turner and a vehicle I’m extremely proud to drive,” he continues.

Delivering Breedon’s coated materials, asphalt and quarry products including gravel, sand and hardcore, the new Range C works across the Tayside and Angus areas.

“The truck’s been on the road for about a month and I love it. All of the work is on windy country roads, and I rarely touch a motorway or dual carriageway; the Range C is ideally suited to the work I do on challenging terrains, it’s manoeuvrable and robust which means I can collect and deliver from all types of locations. It makes my day-to-day work easier and it really is a case of so far so good,” adds John.

Nigel Butler, Commercial Director, Renault Trucks UK, comments: “At Renault Trucks we value long term relationships – and so do our customers.  As a network we are committed to delivering the best support throughout the life of every vehicle, and I am delighted the high levels of service received from David Philp Commercials played a pivotal role in John Vannet’s decision to select his next vehicle from Renault Trucks once again.”
