TradeChoice Carpet & Flooring has taken delivery of 18 new 18T Renault D-range trucks from Hexagon Leasing, with a 26T Renault truck set to arrive later this month, as part of its fleet renewal programme.

The company, which is one of the largest specialist distributors of floorcoverings, currently operates a fleet of 74 vehicles and is a recent customer to Hexagon Leasing.

Richard Payne, TradeChoice national logistics manager, said: "We have a dual partnership with Hexagon Leasing. They have been really helpful and assisted us in exploring our options in terms of cost, payload and efficiencies, and this is the start of us replacing our older fleet assets.

“The 18T trucks are being used primarily as the customer delivery fleet and the 26T will be used for moving stock between our Head Office in Redditch and our UK-wide depots including Cardiff, Bristol, Manchester and Gateshead.”

Nick Parker, Hexagon Leasing national accounts and business development manager, said: "We are delighted to welcome TradeChoice on board and look forward to continuing this valued partnership.

“We have worked closely with TradeChoice to ensure the new rigids meet their exacting specification requirements, which include extras such as cameras and telematics as standard.”

The 26T D-wide Renault truck is currently in the final stages of bodybuild and will be delivered later this month.
