Iveco secures repeat van order from White Knight Laundry

White Knight Laundry Services, has taken delivery of six new 3.5 tonne Daily panel vans, each finished in the firm’s new purple livery.

The company ordered the new long wheelbase Daily 35S13 vans to replace six Daily vehicles which had been operational for the past five years.

Richard Bucksey, transport manager at White Knight Laundry Services, said: “We’ve purchased Iveco Daily vans several times before. They are the perfect size for our requirements, have always been very reliable and are popular with our drivers.

“The nature of our work means we must be able to reach places with limited access for commercial vehicles, particularly in the centre of London.

“Despite being such a large van, the Daily’s tight turning circle and excellent all-round visibility means we haven’t found a customer’s site we can’t access yet.

“The Daily’s overall manoeuvrability has been a key factor in our decision to keep buying from Iveco.”

The Daily vans join a fleet totalling 30 commercial vehicles, which includes a further seven Dailys plus two 18 tonne Iveco Eurocargos.

They have been supplied by Iveco dealer Grays Truck & Van and will operate from the company’s Reading depot, servicing predominantly commercial customers, including hotels, restaurants, healthcare establishments, schools and colleges.

White Knight Laundry Services expect to keep the new vans in operation for approximately five years, with each vehicle covering up to 50,000 miles a year and on the road between five and six days a week.

They have each been specified with the ‘Daily Plus’ options pack, which adds cruise control, provision for a TomTom navigation unit, heated electric mirrors and an additional storage shelf.
