Renault has confirmed it will offer a range of racking and storage equipment, called Ready4Work, which can now be fitted to all the manufacturer’s latest vans. Prices for this addition start from £750.
The Ready4Work initiative has been created by Renault so it enables Renault van customers to have their chosen equipment fitted, as soon as the vehicle is collected from the dealership.
It means new owners can seamlessly continue focusing on the business and not lose any downtime fitting storage retrospectively.
There are two types of off-the-shelf solution racking available, and both are aimed mainly at tradespeople such as electricians and plumbers. Each will be available across the entire Renault commercial vehicle range, starting immediately with the all-new Trafic.
Renault’s Ready4Work range will be available on both standard and long wheelbase versions of the Kangoo Van, all-new Trafic and short and medium wheelbase versions of the new Master.
For the Kangoo Van it will cost from £750 to £1,000. Basic prices for it fitted in All-New Trafic start at £995 (excluding VAT) for Storage System 1 and £1,200 for the Specialist Storage System. New Master prices start at £1,250 for the short wheelbase and £1,500 for medium wheelbase.
The two solutions from Ready4Work consist of light weight, high strength, vehicle storage and van racking. They have been cleverly designed to provide professionals with a durable system suitable for carrying a wide range of tools, components and accessories.
The entry-level version, called ‘System 1’, includes a load and crash tested extruded aluminium floor rails to give maximum strength and brackets connect to the existing load lashing points. The solutions are also supported with four years/100,000 mile warranty in line with Renault’s commercial vehicle range.
Specialist Storage System
The second and more advanced storage solution is called Specialist Storage System. It includes all the same features as System 1 and adds a telescopic drawer unit with three 500mm wide drawers and a shelf. The Specialist Storage System should serve those requiring an even more bespoke set-up for transporting tools and service equipment.
The Renault Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) Product Manager, Steve Wilson, is the man mainly responsible for the start of the Ready4Work initiative. He commented: “We don’t want customers losing time and money waiting to get their new vans fitted out after they’ve picked them up.
“This way, everything you need is fitted at Renault’s import centre and ready for you to collect and just get on with the next job: you’re ready for work. It’s the most cost-effective, efficient way of ordering a new van.”
