Fresh new look for Van Elle’s fleet of vans

Fresh new look for Van Elle’s fleet of vans

Van Elle has made another major investment as the company modernises its fleet of 173 vans.

Stepping away from the traditional orange, the new crisp white vans have been acquired on a long-term hire from Northgate Vehicle Hire

This news comes just weeks after the company expanded its rig fleet.

The fleet of vans will also be refreshed every four years, meaning that Van Elle will always be working with the best possible equipment supported by a nationwide servicing system.

Previously, Van Elle had a mixture of vans in its fleet which were a variety of ages.

Darren Senior, Van Elle’s Production and Transport Director, said: “By having access to a nationwide service and breakdown support system Van Elle will save time and money.

“Our vans will be serviced at a Northgate branch closest to the site where the van is. We will also receive replacement vehicles.

“Before the majority of the fleet, which varied in age, would come back to our head office in Kirkby to be serviced on days including Saturday mornings.”

The vans started to arrive at Van Elle’s head office in Kirkby-in-Ashfield late December last year.

All vans are expected to be out on the roads and at our sites across the country by the end of July this year.

The vans will range from Ford Transit and Vauxhall Vivaro to Mercedes-Benz dropside Sprinter.

Along with a range of Peugeot vans from Partner to Experts and a handful of Partner crew vans. 

The company is also looking into renewing other vehicles in the fleet over the next few months.

Van Elle has also invested £1.3m in new rigs, read more about that here.
