Scotts Plant ensures reliability of its Scania tippers with long-term repair and maintenance from Keltruck
Based in Evesham, Scotts Plant and Haulage supplies muckaway, aggregates, sand and gravel, topsoil and road planings throughout its local area. Reliability is a top priority for the company, and Scotts therefore operates a fleet of 18 tippers 12 of which are Scania, with another four on order this year. All the vehicles are fully maintained by Keltruck at its Droitwich site, with long-term repair and maintenance services using Scania support programmes.
“We aim to be the best in our field,” said Scott Witheford, managing director of Scotts Plant and Haulage. “We have chosen Scania trucks as we consider them to be the best – they are reliable, minimising down time, and they are fuel efficient too.”
Scotts Plant has chosen a six-year Scania Repair & Maintenance package on all of its vehicles from Keltruck, giving it predictable costs and peace of mind. Scott said, “We don’t want to be involved with the repair and maintenance of our trucks in-house, so we have opted to take a package to cover their upkeep for the entire length of time we intend to own them.”
“Keltruck Droitwich always go the extra mile for us – providing a first-class service for the life of the truck with repairs, maintenance and parts when we need them,” added Scott.
The vehicles are a combination of Scania P-Series and G-Series 8×4 tippers with the Scania XT package, with a mix of steel and lightweight alloy. All vehicles have been supplied by Keltruck Account Manager Tony Biddlestone, and Keltruck has been working with Scotts Plant for 20 years.
“We enjoy dealing with Keltruck – Tony makes sure we get the right spec trucks and looks after us on the purchasing,” said Scott. “The tippers look good with our livery and the drivers like them. All in all they fit in well with what we want to achieve.”
