Story: COLIN DAWSON
Independent vehicle glass replacement company National Windscreens has taken on 24 Vauxhall Movano vans for use with the company’s nationwide windscreen repair and replacement service.
Six of the 24 Movanos, in L1 H1 FWD 2.3 CDTi (100ps) manual specification, are already on the road in service around Britain. The vans were supplied by Vauxhall retailer Drive Central Bristol. Another six vans are due for delivery soon, along with six Vauxhall Astra 1.7 CDTi Active models.
The Movanos, which include optional rear parking sensors, were supplied in white before being racked out internally and given the new National Windscreens’ livery following the company’s recent rebranding.
“We are delighted with the Vauxhall Movanos already on our fleet,” National Windscreens director Phil Lomas told Business Vans. “After an in-depth comparison exercise for our fleet vans, it was clear that the Movanos offered incredibly good whole life costs and provide a flexible and very usable load space suitable for our bespoke requirements. In addition, driver visibility is excellent, which makes low-speed manoeuvres much easier.
He said the impressive reliability of the Movano was a bonus for the company’s van management as it reduced vehicle downtime, which was “costly for a business like ours”.
