Leading independent vehicle hire and management company SHB has taken delivery of 176 Fiat Professional vans.
The family-owned company placed the order through FCA Fleet and Business just months after ordering 30 Doblo Cargo vans.
The latest batch of vehicles comprises a mix of Fiorino, Doblo, Ducato Dropside and Talento Panel and 9 Seat Combi vans which will be rented to their customers from SHB’s 15 sites across the UK.
The order underlines the strength in the Fiat Professional van range and the vehicles’ driveability and practicality.
Paul Westwood, Fleet Sales Manager at FCA, said: “It’s been a pleasure to deal with SHB. They are market leaders in specialist hire and know their market inside out.
“They have been very exacting with their requirements but the strength and breadth of the Fiat Professional range allowed us to meet them. The Fiat Professional range offers a solution for most applications and has a diverse range of specifications and configurations across all models. Along with resourceful storage space and impressive engine performance, Fiat engines require no AdBlue, which we believe will benefit our customers in terms of lower running costs and better engine performance.”
Paul Street, Managing Director from SHB, said: “We have worked with Fiat for a number of years and have always found them to be easy to deal with. Their high standards of customer service and reliability go hand-in-hand with how SHB operates as a business and we believe the vehicles supplied by Fiat will further complement and enhance our expanding reputable fleet.”
