We’re delighted to announce two new additions to the J Mould Reading fleet of vehicles. For the first time, we have bought Renault trucks, and two-32 tonne Range C 8×4 tippers now join our extensive fleet of Mercedes, DAFs and MANs.
Our philosophy at J Mould Reading has always been ‘a happy lorry driver is a productive one.’ So Jay Mould, General Manager, decided to involve some of our drivers in the selection process. Jay shortlisted a number of vehicles from different manufacturers.
The company was looking for solid, robust lorries that are up to the challenges faced in the demolition industry but which are also really nice to drive. The drivers took the trucks for test-drives and they unanimously voted for the Renaults due to the comfortable drive, good power, and responsive gearbox.
Jay says “The Renaults give us the extra payload we need and we are using the vehicles to move a range of aggregates to and f rom building sites and at our own tips in Reading. We believe the Range Cs will make a very effective contribution to our business. In fact, we have been so pleased we already have another two on order.”
“They’re solid vehicles and there’s no downtime, as Renault Trucks South do servicing all through the night. We’ve gone back to the red livery I grew up with instead of the white, as we think it is more distinctive.”
