Facility services provider ISS has placed an order for 123 efficient and versatile Renault Master Tippers, taking advantage of the manufacturer’s convenient and straightforward ‘off-the-shelf’ in-house conversion programme.
The company opted for the twin-wheel RWD Master in both medium-wheelbase single cab and long-wheelbase crew cab versions. The vehicles – available for order through Renault’s dealer network – feature 45-degree rear-tipping ‘Scattolini’ bodies, fitted by accredited Renault supplier VFS, and will be used by ISS’ Landscaping Business to service a major new contract at locations across the UK.
The vehicles have been financed through LeasePlan on a five-year contract hire with full maintenance. They also benefit from the industry-leading Renault four-year warranty that provides the ultimate peace of mind for this period or 100,000 miles.
The tippers are complemented by ISS’ recent purchase of 17 Renault Master-based beavertails with a further five on order. Offering benefits that include the speed of loading and unloading mowing machinery and there being no requirement for the driver to hold a driving licence with trailer entitlements, these vehicles feature a TGS purpose-built lightweight aluminium beavertail body which affords a payload of around 1.2 tonnes and can also be fitted with optional cages for leaf and litter clearance use in winter months.
ISS is a long-standing strategic partner of Renault UK and Groupe Renault internationally and the latest acquisitions mean the company now has around 1,100 Renault vehicles on its 2,500-strong UK fleet. This includes a wide range of passenger cars including the Clio supermini, Mégane and Captur crossover shortly the All-New Kadjar and the full array of Renault light commercials.
Darren Payne, Director of Sales, Renault UK said: “We are delighted that a major partner of Renault UK, especially one with such an impressive and diverse fleet as ISS, has seen the benefits of our in-house Master conversion programme, which has been designed from the ground up to simplify the whole vehicle ordering and specification process.
“It’s also very pleasing that ISS was attracted by our market-leading Renault Business Quality Commitment, with four-year warranty and assistance – a promise that’s unrivalled in the LCV sector – and the huge impact this can have on keeping vehicle downtime and whole life costs to a minimum.”
The Renault Master is available as a chassis cab or platform cab and with a variety of manufacturer approved conversions that give operators the unbeatable convenience of a ‘one-stop-shop’ approach to specifying their vehicle and choosing between different weights, lengths and engines. In addition to the Tipper, ‘ready-made’ Master conversions include a Dropside, Box Van and Luton Loloader. The Master also offers a practical and well-equipped cab, with a raft of popular features including DAB radio, Bluetooth and a USB port as standard. An array of safety features such as ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with Grip Xtend, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Swing Assist also come as standard.
