The new contract comprises 262 Caddy Maxi and 110 Transporter T26 models. McNicholas cited the extended body length of the Caddy Maxi as one reason for its choice, as it enables engineers to transport ladders and other equipment within the van instead of on the roof. This reduces potential damage and makes equipment easier to access.
Spencer Ward, Head of Fleet, Plant and Insurance Services at McNicholas, said, “Volkswagen vans are renowned for their efficiency and reliability, which was a major factor for us. This, combined with the aftersales support provided by a dedicated van centre network and competitive finance packages definitely helped to seal the deal. The broad range of vehicles offered by Volkswagen also enabled us to choose vans that suited our specific needs without compromising on specification or performance.”
