Household appliance and home computer specialists Currys PC World has taken delivery of 50 new Fiat Doblo Cargo Maxi vehicles.
The £600,000 deal, with vans supplied and managed by VMS Fleet Management, puts Fiat Professional's 1.6-litre MultiJet diesel commercial vehicle into the heart of Currys PC World's van fleet. As part of a new service engineer project, the vans will be used for home service visits, their 1000kg payload and 4.2 cubic metre volume allowing transportation of large, heavy items such as washing machines and fridge freezers.
"The Doblo Cargo Maxi was chosen for its excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, as well as the 1000kg payload," says Martin James, managing director, VMS Fleet Management Ltd. "It was also useful that the vehicles came straight from the factory in black, as this was the colour Currys PC World requested."
"We are delighted once again that a leading household name has chosen the Fiat Doblo for its fleet," says Sebastiano Fedrigo, director, Fiat Professional. "A combination of its size, versatility and value for money makes the Doblo Cargo Maxi an excellent choice for applications such as these."
