Ten years of reliable and cost-effective performance from its previous Mercedes-Benz Sprinters led IP Fork Trucks back to Stoke-on-Trent dealer Enza for its latest new vans.
Both are Medium-length, high-roof 313CDI BlueEFFICIENCY models, incorporating a host of standard features designed to boost fuel efficiency and thereby reduce exhaust emissions.
Among these is ECO-Start, low rolling resistance tyres, and efficiency improvements to items like the power steering system, fuel pump and battery management.
The two new vans are the subject of a CharterWay contract hire arrangement from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.
Mark Isherwood, managing director of Sandbach-based IP Fork Trucks, said: “Since buying our first Sprinter a decade ago we’ve tried several other makes and models, but none has come close to the Mercedes-Benz in terms of reliability.
“We supply fork trucks and plant equipment to customers over much of the country, so our mobile service engineers rack up a lot of miles. It’s vital, therefore, that their vans are dependable.
“We also need to know that we have a safety net in the unlikely event of anything going wrong. Enza and its fellow dealers in the Mercedes-Benz network provide top-quality back-up.”
He continued: “The Sprinter is also the safest and most comfortable vehicle in its class, which is another important feature, as well as being smart and stylish – the Mercedes-Benz brand portrays a professional image which accurately reflects the high levels of customer service that we provide.”
