IMServ switches from vans to Kia Picantos for site visit agents
The firm took the decision to make the switch to smaller, petrol-engined cars based on cost saving, environmental concerns, safety and comfort. Analysis by IMServ’s leasing provider Hitachi found the Picanto would serve perfectly for the role.
Liveried by Stafford-based company Bri-stor, the 51 Picantos were selected in ‘3’ trim level, which comes with the 1.25-litre petrol engine, and have mainly been specified with manual gearboxes, which bring emissions from 106g/km.
Kate Whitehouse, business support, environment, health, safety & sustainability manager at IMServ, commented: “We were looking for a vehicle which was not only an ergonomically comfortable drive, but one with all the safety and comfort features IMServ requires. The Kia Picanto stood out as the one which met all the requirements and testing the cars both at head office and in the field resulted in a unanimous decision being made. Now that we have seen the end product, including livery and Chapter 8, we are excited to see the cars roll out to represent IMServ.”
