MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – May 31, 2013: Great residual values, reliability and fuel economy made Volkswagen Crafter Luton-bodied vans the perfect choice for NCH (UK), a provider of industrial maintenance solutions, when selecting a fleet of 10 new vehicles for its Pure Solve division.

The Crafter comes with Volkswagen’s refined and economical 2.0-litre TDI engine, and some of the strongest residual values in its sector. The Crafter Luton conversion is a bespoke solution that’s typical of a range of conversions available from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and its ‘Engineered for you’ programme, which complements the range of Crafter dropside and tipper models available from its ‘Engineered to go’ range.

Talking about the choice of vehicle, Matt Rivers, operations manager at NCH (UK), said: ‘We wanted to acquire a fleet with an outstanding all-around performance, great residual values, but above all excellent fuel economy.

‘It’s absolutely vital that we have a fleet of vehicles which can meet the high standards of reliability to enable us to provide our services. The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles range meets those needs and stands out as an excellent investment.’

As well as practicality the Crafter range, which also includes panel vans with load volumes of up to 17m3 and window vans with up to eight passenger seats, also offers some of the best value. Contract hire and finance lease rates are currently available from 299 a month (plus VAT and initial rental), including a 1,000 deposit contribution and four free services. Alternatively, if financed with lease purchase or hire purchase, a 2,000 deposit contribution is available.
