Municipal vehicle hire and maintenance provider, Collett Transport Services (CTS), has taken delivery of its first four 65-registered Johnston VT651 sweepers mounted on 15t DAF chassis. The machines have been brought in as part of a continual growth plan, complementing the company’s compact sweeper fleet already available for hire.
The Gloucestershire-based company was founded by Andy and Bridget Collett in 1994 and acquired by Specialist Fleet Services (SFS) in 2013. Today, the company runs a fleet of 130 vehicles available for short, medium or long term hire, with a 24/7 emergency Spot Hire service for super-fast response.
As a division of SFS the new sweepers will be pressed into service to support SFS’s long term hire contracts, as well as adding to the range of vehicles available to CTS customers.
Andy Collett, CTS co-founder and Director, says, “Self Drive Sweeper Hire is a welcome addition to our developing specialist hire fleet and complements it well. Our highly spec’d Johnston VT651s are a popular product for both council and contracting companies, and with the support of Johnston and experience of CTS we fully expect to make the new self-drive sweeper hire service a big success”
With the fleet being consistently upgraded, CTS also has a regular supply of second hand refuse trucks for sale. For more information visit www.colletttransport.co.uk
