J & A Marshall Ltd, specialists in the import and export of vehicles packed in containers, has taken delivery of three 44-tonne Range T460 6x2 midlift tractor units. The Range Ts, supplied by Sparks Commercial Services Ltd, Totton, are the company’s first vehicles, having previously rented trucks from local suppliers.
Liveried in J & A Marshall’s striking bowtie-wearing bumblebee, the Range Ts are on a 3-year lease through BRS Ltd which includes full repair and maintenance, tax and tyres.
The new trucks are constantly on the go, moving 150-200 vehicles a week for freight forwarders, car dealers and private individuals ready for export and import through DP World Southampton.
Joint Owner, John Marshall explains why he opted for Renault Trucks: “Our business works under pressure to meet the deadlines for shipping container vessels and exporting. Deadlines close over the weekend so we are exceedingly busy on Thursdays and Fridays each week. We found that the short term rental agreement wasn’t meeting our needs so we went shopping. The deal through Sparks, Renault Trucks and BRS provided us with the tailor-made solution we needed to run our operation more efficiently.”
