Family-owned Canim Fruit & Veg has placed an order for nine new Sprinter vans from S&B Commercials.
The latest additions to the fast-growing wholesaler and distributor’s fleet of more than 30 vans are Long-bodied, high-roofed 313 CDI models with smooth and economical 129 hp engines limited to 70 mph. All are from the new Sprinter range introduced late last year, and recognisable by a more sculpted bonnet, near vertical, wedge-shaped radiator grille with perforated slats, and revised, more angular headlights.
“We’ve always been happy with our Sprinters,” says managing director Aydin Maraslioglu. “The running costs are very competitive and they lead the market when it comes to safety.
“Reliability is crucial too, because these vehicles start very early and cover big distances, often in heavy traffic. The three-year, unlimited mileage manufacturer’s warranty is very reassuring, although we’ve never been let down by a Mercedes.”
Canim Fruit and Veg supplies a diverse customer base, including retailers, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and hotels. Mr Koksal continues: “We also supply schools and other public bodies, so we are particularly conscious of our responsibilities and do all we can to reduce emissions and our impact on the environment. This was another factor which weighed in favour of the new Sprinter, as were its extended service intervals.”
