Customers of Scotland-based TOM Vehicle Rental can now take advantage of a new fleet of 100 Mercedes-Benz Citan vans.
The latest additions to the TOM fleet are all 109 CDI models powered by high-torque 1.4-litre engines rated at 90 hp. Customers can choose between Long and Extra-long versions, according to their cargo-carrying requirements.
TOM group operations director James Rafferty says: “As a rental operator we want vehicles which are reliable and cost-effective over their whole life. The Citan offers a class-leading warranty which will protect our maintenance position and ensure that we are covered for the working life of the vehicle.
“Equally important, the Citan is also extremely fuel-efficient, which makes it a highly attractive proposition for customers – these new vans are already proving very popular, with many having been snapped up for long-term contracts by established customers.”
The company has enjoyed strong growth over recent years and now has a fleet of more than 6,000 vehicles, the vast majority of them vans.
TOM last year opened a depot in Trafford Park, Manchester, and continues to march southwards, recently picking up business as far away as London.
