New livery for Kwik-Fit mobile van fleet
Wednesday, April 04, 2007
The new vans incorporate all the latest tyre-changing technology, installed by Qi Van Systems, the Midlands-based van racking and storage specialists.
Kwik-Fit has unveiled an all-new look as part of a re-brand for its mobile operation. The blue, white and yellow logo makes its debut on 23 recently purchased Mercedes Sprinters.
The vehicles are fitted with Pang wheel balancers, tyre removers and air jacks, together with Syncro racking and storage units and a Winton concealed PTO-driven compressor. Further modifications include a mid bulkhead, split-level storage for tyres and a computer table and electrics in the cab.
Operations boss Simon Lucas said the fast-fit firm is keen to promote mobile fitting to businesses, stressing the service offers “maximum convenience and minimum vehicle downtime”.
Lucas also believes the mobile fitting arm of Kwik-Fit will continue to expand as “time pressure on business drivers coupled with a growing focus on road safety increases, resulting in more businesses applying rigourous health and safety policies that include tyre safety checks”.
