Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has secured a fleet contract to supply utility service provider McNicholas with 372 new vans.
McNicholas said it chose Volkswagen because it has an extensive range of vans, strong residual values and reliable vehicles.
The new contract comprises 262 Caddy Maxi and 110 Transporter T26 models, with the Maxi chosen due to the flexibility offered by its longer wheelbase.
The vehicles will carry equipment including ladders using bespoke racking within the van to reduce damage to the exterior of the vehicles.
“Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ vans are renowned for both their efficiency and reliability, and this was a major factor for us in terms of our commitment to service for our clients,” said Spencer Ward, head of fleet at McNicholas. “This, combined with the aftersales support provided by the company’s dedicated van centre network and competitive finance packages offered by Volkswagen Financial Services, definitely helped to seal the deal.”
