FUEL efficiency, payload capacity and value for money were all on the Allianz Global Assistance shopping list when the recovery firm needed new vans for its roadside assistance fleet.
The company picked Volkswagen Transporters for the job, with 79 models supplied by Birmingham Volkswagen Van Centre, in a deal worth £1.75 million. The dealership worked with Allianz Global Assistance to ensure the vehicles were delivered on time and to the bespoke specification required.
Each Transporter has been converted to carry all the essential gear need by Allianz technicians, including:
- Diagnostic equipment
- Secure storage for jack, axle stands, tools, common vehicle parts and car batteries.
- There’s even a compact recovery trailer on board.
Allianz Global Assistance deputy operations director Rob Lunt told Business Vans: “We required a fleet with outstanding all-round performance, great residual values, and excellent fuel economy.
“But as we operate a 24/7 business, vehicle reliability is also of paramount importance and the Volkswagen Transporter meets all our needs.”
