JC Balls & Sons specialises in earth moving and bulk excavations and has been operating across the East Midlands since 1963. It has a rolling replacement programme to update its kit, and once again approached RHCV for assistance as a longstanding and loyal customer.
The team at RHCV’s Alfreton dealership worked closely with the firm to understand the fleet requirements and identify products that would fit the bill. JC Balls & Sons has always favoured the Renault brand which comprises 63% of the firm’s 30-strong vehicle fleet.
On this occasion, five Renault C 430 8×4 Tipper Trucks were purchased and subsequently delivered on a staggered basis between November 2021 through to February 2022. All were replacement trucks and were covered by a two-year repair and maintenance contract with RHCV.
Prior to the vehicle handover, the Tippers went through RHCV’s dedicated paint shop service at its Nottingham branch. Each received a new livery design and brand refresh to help the cab and chassis on each to stand out whilst on the road.
RHCV’s paint shop is a fully equipped and modern paint booth, capable of meeting all customer needs, and was enhanced just over a year ago through investment in a new preparation bay area to complement the overall customer offer.
Jamie Balls, Transport Manager, commented: “We chose the C range 8x4s because the price was on point and the timescales for delivery worked for the business. Part of the reason for us also choosing Renault is down to RHCV.
“The back-up we receive from the team there and the customer service across the dealership is second to none. They always look after us and meet out needs whilst providing peace of mind, fitting our vehicles in for service straight away when the need arises.”
JC Balls & Sons employs over 100 people and is proud of its rich history as the number one plant hire and contracting business in the region. Over the past six decades, it has expanded its services to cover plant hire, contracting, lorry hire and haulage, ready mix concrete, recycling, engineering, and land improvements.
