Mill Autoquip takes on More Citroen vans

Car and commercial vehicle parts distributor, Mill Autoquip, has strengthened its Citroën LCV fleet with the delivery of 40 Nemo X and six Berlingo vans.

With these latest 2013 deliveries there are now more than 100 Citroën vans in the growing Mill Autoquip fleet.

"The Nemo, with its combination of excellent fuel economy, load capacity and the Extenso folding seat - which allows us to carry exhaust systems - fulfils our requirements for most day-to-day deliveries," says accountant and fleet manager, Tony Watson. "We use the Berlingos to transport the heavier items, such as parts from our dedicated commercial vehicle branch in Redruth."

The company has opted for the Nemo X HDi 75 manual 660 van, which is fitted with a 75hp Euro 5 diesel engine that returns 62.8mpg on the combined cycle. The Nemo vans have a 660kg payload capacity and 2.5cu m of load volume.

Mill Autoquip, a member of the Parts Alliance, is one of the largest independent motor factors in South West England and each Nemo van will make up to 50 drops each day, delivering parts to customers from its 17 depots across Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. The company purchases most of its vehicles outright and keeps them for three years during which time they will clock up around 100,000 miles over some challenging terrain.

"Despite the tough life our vans lead, we still have people queuing up to buy our Citroëns when we have finished with them," said Watson.
