Healthcare provider NRS has taken delivery of 25 front-wheel drive Vito 111 CDI Longs and 110 Long and Medium Sprinters.
The vans were supplied by Northside Truck & Van and are all the subject of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services contract hire agreements and operate from a number of locations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
They will be maintained within the manufacturer’s UK Dealer Network under Service Care packages.
NRS uses its Sprinters to deliver and collect pieces of equipment to and from private dwellings and care homes.
These vehicles carry a combination of new and used items, meaning NRS observes strict infection controls.
Each therefore has two entirely separate cargo areas, a movable bulkhead allowing the size of each to be changed according to the load profile.
The Vito vans will be used by engineers who carry about repair and maintenance work on items the company supplies.
Two Citans will also be joining the fleet later in the year and will be allocated to staff from NRS’s Telecare division, who supply, install and maintain home monitoring systems.
Alison Owen, fleet manager at NRS, said: “Our vehicles, and our staff, are the visible face of our company so their appearance is hugely important.
“We take great pride in the quality of our products and the service we provide, and the Mercedes-Benz brand image reflects our high standards perfectly.
“Back-up is equally important and in this respect, too, we receive excellent service from Mercedes-Benz Dealers.”
