Iveco Daily vans join 1st Choice Tool and Plant Hire fleet

Iveco has supplied 12 new Daily vans to 1st Choice Tool and Plant Hire, replacing the firms existing fleet of vehicles.

The deal for two 3.5-tonne Daily panel vans, plus eight 3.5-tonne and two 7.2-tonne Daily chassis cabs, represents a complete switch to Iveco from a rival marque.

Rob Cox, managing director at 1st Choice Tool & Plant Hire, said: “We need a rugged vehicle that can handle our day-to-day work, especially as we transport diggers, dumpers and even three-tonne excavators. Iveco proved to us that the Daily is more than up to the task and the whole package they offered made it a no brainer.”  

All 12 vehicles will deliver construction tools and machinery to customers in London and across the South East of England.

Supplied by Iveco Retail in Hayes, five of the 3.5-tonne Daily chassis cabs (35C14) are fitted with dropside bodies and mesh tail-lifts by Ingimex, with the remaining three having plant bodies built by Shawtrack. Each Daily panel van (35S14) has a cargo volume of 10.8 cubic metres.

All the new vehicles have been supplied with a five-year Iveco Elements repair and maintenance contract, which has been structured to maximise uptime and performance over a long life. All routine work will be carried out at Iveco Retail’s site in Hayes.

In operation five days a week, each vehicle will clock up approximately 35,000 miles a year and remain in service with the customer until 2023.
