Oxford Air Conditioning has added an Extra-long Mercedes-Benz Citan to its engineer service fleet.
The company purchased its first three Vito models from Rygor in 2012.
It now runs a number of vehicles from the mid-sized range, including its first new Vito. The latest, a 116 BlueTec Long, arrived shortly after its first Citan small vans – both are 111 CDI models with fuel-efficient 110 hp engines.
“We’ve tried other manufacturers’ vans in the past but none were as well-built, reliable and durable as a Mercedes-Benz,” said Managing Director Darren Crawley.
He continued: “Our first Citans have been assigned to engineers who undertake pre-planned maintenance. These vehicles are highly cost-effective to operate and ideally-sized for this type of work.
“The Citan’s Extra-long body means they can put their 1.8m ladders straight in the back and still have plenty of room for their tools. I’m assured it’s a lovely drive too – smooth, quiet and well appointed. All in all, they tell me, it’s just a great little van.”
“We work our vehicles hard so have commissioned Rygor to carry out interim safety checks every 10,000 miles,” explained Crawley.
“When you’re running a business you don’t need any extra hassle or worry. Rygor’s contract repair and maintenance support represents a stress-free solution that gives me the peace of mind which comes from knowing I’m sending my guys out each day in vehicles which are exceptionally safe and maintained to the highest standard by factory-trained technicians, fitting only Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts.”
Rygor van sales executive Felix Brenninkmeijer added: "Oxford Air Conditioning prides itself on efficiency, reliability, quality and customer service, attributes which are perfectly aligned with Rygor’s mantra of Setting Standards as well as the prestige of the Mercedes-Benz product. We have built a positive relationship with Darren and his company and look forward to continuing to build upon this by providing him with the highest level of service.”
