New look, new vehicles for British Gas fleet
The vans include a mixture of Volkswagen Caddy and Caddy Maxi vans, plus a Crafter dropside, and the trial of a Transporter Shuttle minibus. They form part of the British Gas vehicle exchange programme to update its fleet of over 10,000 vehicles and also sport a vibrant, new cyan blue livery that is intended to reflect the ongoing modernisation of British Gas' brand and business and also to communicate more information and features.
These new Volkswagen vans will be driven by British Gas engineers and energy experts across the UK who make on average 10,000 service checks a day, looking after 12 million British homes and one million businesses.
For improved safety the vans are fitted with speed limiters and racking to help control any load if the vehicle has to brake heavily. In addition, the new livery includes high-visibility chevrons on the rear doors.
Colin Marriott, general manager for British Gas fleet, said: ‘Our on-going strategic relationship with Volkswagen is very important to our business. It enables us to provide our engineers with safe and reliable vehicles., which meet highest quality standards and offer excellent value in terms of whole-life costs.'
