Glenvale Waste based in Armagh, Northern Ireland, has put its first Renault truck into operation; the C480 6×2 joins its 12-strong fleet.  The truck will be used to empty tanks and desilt lines for the company which specialises in drain and sewer services.

Customer and after-sales service were the key factors in Glenvale selecting Renault for the first time. Director Pat Hughes says: “One of the main reasons we chose Renault is our local service point, Toal Truck Services, whose hard work, and ‘can do’ attitude together with a large parts stock means we receive high levels of after-sales service and minimal vehicle downtime.”

Specified with the driver in mind, the C480 with sleeper cab is equipped with ultimate leather steering wheel with cruise and telephone control, one touch electric windows, a 2kW cab independent night heater as well as electronically regulated comfort air conditioning. “The C480 is well finished, very comfortable to drive and, importantly, the drivers are very happy with this new lorry,” notes Pat.

Fitted with a Vallely Jetvac waste tanker, the C480 comes with overhead boom for cleaning deep tanks, remote control and saddle tanks for carrying extra water.

Glenvale Waste, which operates across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, has seen an increase in the level of business recently and the Range C allows it to offer its customers a wider range of solutions to waste problems.
