Allparts Automotive, based in High Wycombe, has just taken delivery of a fleet of 17 Peugeot Partner vans to expand its existing fleet of 80 vehicles, and to help with delivery of their components to customers.
All 17 Partners are 1.4 litre petrol vans with the ability to use dual fuel LPG, and operate from Allparts’ Hayes site in Middlesex.
Allparts Automotive run an express parts delivery service to local garages, workshops and other businesses. The express service parts need to reach their destination within an hour, so Allparts needed to find a reliable, good all round vehicle with the right corporate image.
Mark Darvill, managing director says: "We were looking to reduce the running costs of our fleet without compromising quality and image. Research showed us that converting to LPG would significantly reduce our fuel costs and with government grants available for using environmentally friendly fuel we needed to find a van to meet this criterion. The Peugeot Partner is the best vehicle in its class, and with its good all round life cost, image and comfortable drive, together with its ability to easily convert to LPG, is the ideal vehicle for our business."
Keith Halcrow, corporate account manager at Peugeot says: "This contract is a good demonstration of how we are working in close partnership with our dealerships and customers to secure fleet business. It is a true joint effort to deliver our customers the vehicles they want – with favourable terms to suit their business needs."
Palmers of Watford supplied the vans, with the conversion to LPG using AG Autogas Systems’ Sgi system (as supplied by Nicholson McLaren Engines) being handled at their Coventry depot.Published 18 October 2002
