Totepool has instructed Preston-based Volkswagen Van Centre to supply its whole fleet of 50 commercial vehicles over the next three years.
An initial order of nine Crafter and Transporter vans has just been delivered, worth approximately £180,000. The fleet will consist mainly of Crafters with a number of Transporters and Caddy Maxi vehicles.
Diane Foster, the Tote’s fleet manager, said: “As the Tote covers the whole of the UK the vans are vital to transport equipment between racecourses throughout the year.
“The service we experienced from Volkswagen Van Centre (Lancashire) was superb and the vans will fit perfectly to our requirements thanks to the efforts of their fleet account executive Tony Moore.
“The Volkswagen brand speaks excellence and as the Tote already operates a completely Volkswagen job-need car fleet it was an easy decision to make when choosing our new commercial vehicle fleet supplier.”
Paul Hoinville, head of business at the Volkswagen Van Centre said: “This is a fantastic account win for the company and provides evidence of our commitment to our fleet customers.
“We look forward to providing the Tote with their fleet of Volkswagen commercial vehicles.”
