Richard Irvin FM, a technical facilities management services business based in Scotland, has upgraded part of its fleet to fuel efficient vans with a contract hire deal from Asset Alliance Group.
The business approached the commercial vehicle specialist on word-of-mouth recommendation and awarded it the deal to supply 91 light commercial vehicles
Asset Alliance Group’s full fleet management package means all costs including tyre replacement, full servicing, maintenance and repair, safety inspections and breakdown cover will be supported.
The vehicles – a mix of Volkswagen Crafter Panel vans and Vauxhall Vivaros – will be used by the Richard Irvin FM team to serve commercial property and housing customers with planned and reactive maintenance, comprehensive plant and system replacement and upgrades, as well as carry out full project management services.
Richard Irvin FM’s finance and support services director Mark Ritchie said: “Asset Alliance Group came highly recommended to us and after several discussions with previous suppliers, they were the clear stand out. Since the moment we made contact, we’ve been really pleased with how flexible and helpful the whole team have been.”
Asset Alliance Group was able to replace the company’s whole fleet on a short timescale while navigating the Coronavirus pandemic.
“As we continue to grow and expand our business, it is important that our workforce is equipped to work safely and efficiently. These new fuel-efficient vans, have also provided us with a great opportunity to share our refreshed brand into the communities that we serve,” Ritchie added.
The Richard Irvin FM team will also have access to an online portal which collates compliance records, maintenance schedules and servicing information in one easy to access dashboard.
