Sprinter open-and-shut winner for curtain specialist
Monday, June 16, 2008
One of the big problems with curtainsider bodies is that thieves have a nasty habit of slashing the curtains to get at the load they conceal. When this happens fast and effective repairs are essential, and that's the service Leicester's TK Curtain Repairs provides round-the-clock.
To help it do so it's just taken delivery of a pair of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 518CDI vans with 3.0-litre V6 184hp common rail diesel engines and long, high roof, bodies. Both the 5.0-tonners were supplied through local dealer Mertrux and are equipped with air conditioning.
TK has been running Sprinters for the past 13 years. One of the Sprinters being replaced by the newcomers had clocked up 100,000 miles in 36 months while the other had covered 80,000. TK's client list includes Walkers Crisps, Coca Cola, DHL and TNT.
