Motiva strengthens link with The Landscape Group

Peter Wright - Motiva

The Landscape Group has extended its relationship with Motiva by adding more than 100 vans, tippers and transporters to its fleet.

The deal, which includes a range of custom-built LCVs, means Motiva now provides more than 200 units - 40% of the company’s leased fleet.

The vehicles will be used to deliver maintenance and landscaping machinery throughout the UK and will help meet growing demand for the services of The Landscape Group, which plans to boost its 600-strong fleet with a further 45 units supplied by Motiva later in the year.

Angus Lindsay, head of assets and fleet at The Landscape Group, said: “We have a raft of new and existing contracts all over the country and these units will give us the extra capacity we need.

“Seasonal surges in demand mean we often require short lead times, so we rely on Motiva because of their flexible and proactive approach.

“Their professional attitude is matched by sound technical knowledge of the commercial vehicle industry and the idiosyncrasies of type approval and changing legislation.

“Motiva also take a hands-on approach to customer satisfaction at all levels and that’s crucially important to us. We know that if a problem arises, they’ll stop at nothing to sort it out.”

The link between the companies extends to vehicle tracking with all commercials operated by The Landscape Group, including 80 tractors and 300 ride-on mowers, monitored by Motrak – Motiva’s in-house telematics system.

Peter Wright (pictured), Sales Director at Motiva, said: “We first supplied vehicles to The Landscape Group six years ago and the relationship has gone from there.

“They rely on us to deliver the right vehicles at the right time and the right price, but also to provide ongoing and unparalleled levels of customer service."
