Established in 1999, Flood Transport has steadily grown from being an owner-driver to running a fleet of 11 vehicles with a team of 20. The new Renault bulk bodied sealed tipper supplied by RH Commercial Vehicles joined Flood’s fleet of 32-ton Euro 6 tippers used for the delivery of dry and coated aggregates across the East Midlands.
Mark Flood, Managing Director at Flood Transport commented: “This is the first time we have purchased a Renault. We have decided to go for a long-distance sleeper cab with an Aliweld bulker body with a sealed rear tailgate as different customers workloads have dictated the need for this specification of truck.
“We can now supply the full range of body requirements to our customer base i.e., heavy-duty steel bodied muck away and demolition trucks, insulated asphalt tipping bodies used in road laying applications and general stone deliveries. Now with the new Renault bulk bodied sealed tipper we are able to carry the wettest of materials and sludges with ease due to the specially designed rear doors incorporating rubber seals.”
After offering the firm a demonstrator vehicle, Flood Transport was very impressed with driver feedback. He added: “We had never considered purchasing a Renault before but the feedback from drivers was very positive and we were impressed with how good the truck performed. From the point of ordering right through to the delivery from RHCV the process has been a breeze, with no issues along the way.”
