Commercial laundry equipment supplier Girbau has switched to a fleet of Mercedes-Benz Vitos to benefit from the brands aftersales support.
The business acquired 26 mid-sized Vito Compacts, in Urban trim, from the Milton Keynes branch of Intercounty Truck & Van.
It has also recently commissioned a single 3.5-tonne Sprinter 314 CDI, which is used by its installation team, and has just ordered two more Vito models, one of which will be an Extra-long crew van with second row of seats.
The Vito Urban Edition is based on the 114 CDI variant and powered by a 2.1-litre diesel engine that offers fuel economy of up to 44.1 mpg in the combined cycle.
Mercedes-Benz offers a round-the-clock servicing capability through its dealer network.
Girbau’s new vans are the subject of a flexible, low-cost Agility finance agreement from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and are being maintained by members of the manufacturer’s franchised Dealer Network under a Mercedes-Benz Service Plan.
Girbau UK Managing Director Peter Marsh said: “We’d had a lot of problems with our previous vans and were having to wait weeks for repairs to be made. That’s not acceptable – our engineers respond to emergency call-outs from customers, as well as undertaking planned maintenance, and they cannot work without their vans.”
