Commercial vehicle group Sherwood Truck & Van is helping to keep the Green Toilet Company on the move after supplying the firm with a new vehicle.
Based in Braithwell, South Yorkshire, the Green Toilet Company has been supplying portable toilet, washroom and shower facilities to sites and events throughout the country for many years.
As well as being delivered and collected from sites, all units need to be maintained in use, and for that, the Green Toilet Company has just taken delivery of an Iveco Daily 35C15 with a chassis-mounted pumper unit.
Supplied by Sherwood Truck & Van, Highfield Lane, Sheffield, this features a dual-purpose body built by Rapide Tankers of Full Sutton, York. Behind the cab is a twin- tank unit – one to carry 180 gallons of waste, the other to transport 100 gallons of fresh water. The former carries the waste pumped from a cubicle in use; the latter refills it with clean, fresh water for flushing, hand-washing or showering.
Over the rear axle is an aluminium bed, designed to carry two portable toilet cubicles.
“Daily’s the ideal vehicle for our needs,” said Green Toilet Company managing director Jim Proudley. “It’s tougher and harder-wearing than most vans in its class, yet it gives all the comfort and reliability a driver needs to ensure that we can deliver – and take away – what we’ve promised.
“And Sherwood are the ideal dealer too. We’ve dealt with them for several years now, and we find they’re dependable, reliable and straight-forward. Business doesn’t have to be complicated, and they go out of their way to support us when and where we need that support.”
Sherwood Truck & Van is part of West Bromwich-based Guest Trucks, one of the UK’s largest independently owned commercial vehicle dealers and the single largest Iveco distributor.
Helen Waterfall, regional director responsible for the four Sherwood locations at Sheffield, Nottingham, Etruria near Stoke, and at South Normanton, Derbyshire, said: “We are very pleased to have once again supplied the Green Toilet Company with a vehicle that is perfect for the firm’s needs.
“The company takes a proactive approach in ensuring that the facilities they provide are both clean and pleasant to use, and protective of the areas in which they’re sited, and we are delighted to be helping them to achieve this.”
Sherwood Truck & Van is a leading supplier of new and used commercial vehicles, established in 1978. The company also maintains, services and repairs commercial vehicles across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Staffordshire and most of Cheshire.
