AB2000 is replacing more than half of its 50-strong van fleet with new vehicles from Fraikin. The deal marks the first time the company – now part of Quattro Group – has contract hired its fleet.
Fraikin secured this contract, having supplied more than 150 vans to Quattro in 2017.
This new full-service contract hire agreement with AB2000 is for 31 Mercedes-Benz Citan vans being delivered into sites in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Inverness.
Quattro Group’s area manager Jon Sherred said: “FraikinView has transformed the way we manage our fleet and, naturally, we wanted our colleagues at AB2000 to share in these benefits.”
Fraikin tailored the specification of the vehicles to suit AB2000’s precise requirements, adding air conditioning for driver comfort, plus forward-facing cameras and a reversing aid to support fleet safety.
Sherred added: “These vehicles were previously purchased outright, but moving to contract hire allows us to take advantage of fixed monthly pricing for the next four years.
"We know exactly how much we’re paying each month, which makes planning fleet replacement intervals a whole lot simpler.”
