Somerset-based bulk haulier W Rolls has taken delivery of a new 32-tonne Renault Range C, joining eight more Range Cs and three Premium Landers already in its fleet.

Supplied by Renault Trucks South West, the Range C460 8x4 with Aliweld bulk tipping body means the operator’s 12-strong fleet is solely Renault.

Director John Bartleet says: “I’ve been buying Renault trucks for a long time and I’m always recommending them to other operators who are buying new vehicles.

“The trucks are great, reliable and robust, plus we have a fantastic relationship with the team at Renault Trucks South West as well as great back-up service from Renault Trucks’ approved repairer A E George Commercials, which is only four miles away in Bruton.”

The W Rolls fleet delivers all over the UK, with the trucks covering around 120,000km per year.

“Our tippers are out Monday to Friday on long distance jobs up and down the UK. The fuel figures have been very impressive and on average we are achieving 9-plus mpg,” says Bartlett.

Driver appeal was an important consideration, he says, adding: “Our drivers are particularly pleased with the new Range Cs. They are working on long distances so a comfortable life on board is crucial and overall they have been very happy with the bigger cab, storage spaces and interior finishes.”
