A drainage clearance company has expanded its fleet with vans supplied by Vanaways.

Trent’s Drains now has a fleet of 21 vehicles, including 12 jetting vans.

It has been supplied with around a dozen vans by Vanaways over the past few years, via business development manager Liam Nicholas, with the most recent additions being two Mercedes-Benz Sprinters.

Trent’s Drains has bespoke van needs, including specialist suspension requirements to manage the weight of its high-pressure jet cleaning equipment.

Trent’s Drains transportation manager Jozef Przytocki said: “We’ve created a reputation for quality and expertise which has been the basis for winning the contracts which have seen us grow so much over recent years.

“To support our growth, we’ve invested heavily in equipment and vehicles, so we’ve needed partners who can provide exactly what we need to let our engineers do their job reliably and in productively.

“Throughout that time Liam’s knowledge of our business as well as his own specialist expertise and contacts have been invaluable.

“We’ve successfully navigated our fleet purchasing through a landscape of regular price changes with different manufacturers, and as our changing machinery has placed different demands on our vans.

“It’s been vital to have someone who can advise on what would suit us best. We’re looking forward to an ongoing relationship with Vanaways as our company continues to grow.”

Nicholas said: “[Company founders] Louis and Mark [Trent] and the team need the right horsepower to transport their equipment, with the right interior spec because of the distances their operatives have to drive.

“What’s also been important is the speed of the journey from the production line to the premises, as well as the best value with a streamline and easy process.

“I’m pleased with the relationship we’ve had over the years – it’s meaningful, not just transactional – and advice has been a key component of what we’ve provided.

“Of course because we’re not tied to one supplier it means we’re the ideal partner for companies like Trent’s – we’ve got a wide choice to offer so it’s easier to meet specialist needs.”
