Construction Access adds Isuzu Urban to its fleet

Scaffolding business Construction Access has added the Isuzu Urban to its 12-strong commercial vehicle fleet.

Supplied by local Isuzu Truck dealer Thompson Commercials on a five-year contract hire deal through Thompson's sister company, Premium Leasing, this newest addition to the Construction Access fleet is one of the recently introduced Euro VI Isuzu Urban N75.150 rigids.

The Isuzu has been fitted with a 20ft drop side body and is now working on a range of scaffolding contracts all over the UK.

Darren Charles, operations manager at Construction Access, said: “Over the years, we have developed a good working relationship with Thompson Commercials and following a test drive and appraisal in one of their Isuzu demo trucks, we decided to switch to Isuzu for the first time for this additional fleet vehicle.

"We have been impressed by its performance, as well as its overall build specification.”

The Isuzu Urban 7.5 tonner will cover approximately 25,000 miles per annum over its five-year working life, as it becomes the first Isuzu to join the truck fleet of one of the north east's largest privately-owned scaffolding companies.

Construction Access provides a full range of scaffolding from  single house sites, right through to major contracts such as football stadia, retail shopping centres and housing estates.

The new Euro VI Isuzu Urban N75.150 rigid truck was launched by Isuzu Truck at this year’s CV Show at the NEC, Birmingham as part of the company’s latest 2014 range of Euro VI trucks, and features Isuzu’s turbocharged four-cylinder 3.0 litre 150 PS engine.

Keith Child, marketing director at Isuzu Truck, said:“The building and construction industry has been a mainstay within our business for many years now, with the Isuzu truck range giving operators a flexible choice of proven and rugged performers, well-suited to the rigours of this particular industry.

"With the recent introduction of the Urban rigid to our Euro VI range, we are providing companies with an even wider choice of model types for these challenging applications.”
