CITROËN HELPS TWO RIVERS MAKE A HOME
Two Rivers Housing, a social housing provider in the Forest of Dean, has taken delivery of its first Citroën vans. With the delivery of 1 x Relay 35 Crew Cab dropside, 2 x Nemo, 2 x Dispatch and 18 x Relay vans, Two Rivers Housing now has an all-Citroën van fleet.
The new vans, which replace a mixed fleet of leased and short term hired vehicles, will be used by Two Rivers Housing’s home-based technicians who provide maintenance services for its 4,000 homes in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.
Two Rivers Housing has specified all of its new Citroën vans in Polar White paint. The Relay 35 Crew Cab dropside truck has a single cab, tool pod and dropside body. Supplied by Warners of Cheltenham, a Citroën Business Centre, the new vans have been acquired on 4-year/60,000 mile Automotive Leasing contract hire agreements.
Remco Kroese, Two River Housing’s Head of Contract Services, comments, “While complying with procurement legislation, Citroën was the top manufacturer out of a field of three. Nemo, Dispatch and Relay vans are ideally suited in size and carrying capacity to meet our range of operational requirements. At the same time they provide low whole life costs and high levels of driver comfort and safety.”
Founded in 2003, Two Rivers Housing provides affordable homes in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. It is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, with a £21 million turnover and 4,000 properties of various sizes and styles of social housing.
