Renault Trucks UK and Ireland has announced the expansion of its dealer network with the opening of a service point in Gloucester.
Working with Renault Trucks’ wholly owned dealer group, Renault Truck Commercials, South West Truck & Van joins 71 other strategically located sites across the UK and Ireland providing support to owner drivers and large fleet operators.
Opened in July 2020, the 2.5 acre site is located in Gloucester and is one of three South West Truck & Van commercial vehicle dealerships.
Reporting to Renault Truck Commercials South West in Bristol, the site will enhance the manufacturer’s dealer network in the Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire areas.
Carlos Rodrigues, Managing Director Renault Trucks UK & Ireland, said: “We are pleased to announce the addition of South West Truck & Van as another service point in the UK, further strengthening our network coverage for the West Central area of England.
“The opening of a dedicated site in Gloucester follows hot on the heels of the launch of our service point for Cornwall at Launceston Truck Service and is part of our relentless pursuit to put our customer’s businesses at the heart of our decision making. With the latest addition in Gloucester we are able to provide a more comprehensive local commercial vehicle service offering that meets all of Renault Trucks’ exacting dealer standards to customers operating in the area.”
South West Truck & Van has a team of six technicians based at the Gloucester site, which is expected to grow throughout 2021 as South West Truck & Van establishes itself as a Renault Trucks partner and develops its existing used vehicle, sales and rental operations.
The Gloucester service point is fully equipped with all of the latest diagnostic and repair equipment, and as a result of the partnership is an Authorised Repairer for Renault Trucks. It will also offer all aspects of the aftersales service with genuine parts sold over the counter or delivered to customers and provide key strategic support for Renault Trucks’ 24/7 roadside assistance service for the area.
Stuart Beeton, Commercial Director, South West Truck & Van, added: “We are delighted to represent the Renault Trucks brand here in Gloucester and the surrounding areas.
“My team and I are looking forward to welcoming customers to our service point and continue to deliver the high standards and responsive service levels that Renault Trucks customers can rely on.”
