The firm is taking delivery of 77 New Master vans throughout this month. The vehicles will feature Everest's distinctive livery and used by the company's fitters who specialise in the installation of kitchens and security systems as well as windows, doors and conservatories.

In addition, a total of 12 Megane Sport Tourers and three Megane Hatches have also been ordered and will be used by Everest's surveyors and managers.

Darren Stewart, operations specialist at Everest, said: 'We chose Renault based on three main factors - their leading reputation for eco-friendly vehicles, the long warranty and because they offer a practical size for our requirements. The New Master vans and Meganes also met our needs for value-for-money and fuel-efficient vehicles.'

Darren Payne, Renault UK's director of fleet and commercial vehicle operations, said: 'Many business customers have been won over by the New Master van as a result of is new look, fuel economy, comprehensive equipment levels and quality, as well as our class-leading Renault Business Promise.

'We're delighted that an established brand such as Everest, which needs practical and reliable vehicles to meet its daily business and customer needs, has given it and the Mégane, a ringing endorsement by choosing it for its fleet.'
