Toilets+ are always flushed with success – otherwise their business would go down…well, the toilet.
But the company that provides the flexible hire of portable toilets from its depots in East Anglia, London and the South of England, has decided to pick up its portable loos in a different way: with a Renault Master chassis cab.
Toilets+ uses mainly Mercedes Sprinters, but the new chassis cab is one of six Renault Masters the firm is taking on supplied by Renault Trucks’ dealer Norfolk Truck & Van. However, one thing all Toilet+’s 50-van fleet has in common a distinctive personalised number plate ending in ‘LOO’.
All the new Renault Masters have bespoke bodies; the 125bps have chassis mounted small vacuum pumper unit plus the facility to carry two toilets, fitted by M&M Commercial Bodybuilders of Norwich; the higher powered Renault Master 150hp is fitted with a flatbed that can carry eight toilets and tow a further eight. The Masters will operate out of the company’s five strategically located depots across East Anglia and the South East, supplying portable toilets to a range of customers and requirements, including events, weddings and the construction industry.
A good payload and a competitive deal from Norfolk Truck & Van clinched the deal for Toilets+ to switch from Mercedes Sprinter to Renault Master. Toilets+ managing director, Mick Bowman, commented on this company van news: “We researched the market carefully and the Renault Master offered a competitive package. They are performing very well on the road, the drivers like them, which is an important factor, and we are looking forward to adding more Masters to the fleet as part of our ongoing vehicle replacement programme.”
Toilets+ expects to get 250,000 miles out of each vehicle on its small fleet before it is replaced.
The south of England company offers a comprehensive service that includes delivery, collection and maintenance of portable loos throughout the term of hire. On site, toilets are fully sanitised and serviced by fully trained operatives using the company’s specialist fleet of vehicles. Toilets+ offers says it offers unrivalled convenience to its customers with thousands of toilets available for short and long term hire and next day delivery.
