2015 is set to be another fantastic year for Vac-Ex Fleet Management!
We’re pleased to announce that due to both the repeat and increased demand of our services, we continue to invest in our fleet. Our very experienced team now maintain all Vac-Ex vehicles to the highest standard from our new purpose built premises; this new central location houses the entire fleet – ensuring we continue to meet customer demand and provide a service, that is, second to none.
Our parts department stock a comprehensive range of service equipment and specialised parts for all models of Dino; this along with our newest edition to the fleet, a fully stocked service van, maintains a fast efficient response anywhere in the UK.
All our Fleet and Plant goes through a pre -planned maintenance schedule along with a 4 weekly preventative maintenance inspection / Audit.
Over the past year, we’ve invested heavily in our units, beginning with our oldest, Danny ( 56 plate ) and we completed a complete overhaul of this unit. This followed by Lydia ( 58 plate ) which was given the same upgrade as Danny, bringing it up to the standard of our newest units. A complete assessment was carried out on all of our Fleet and refurbished where required, with no expense spared.
JFM Plant Hire Ltd was originally formed in 1995, to supply sister Civil Engineering Company John Mee Construction Ltd specialist plant, to carry out its original discipline of Deep Drainage. Starting with standard equipment such as Dumpers and rollers, this quickly evolved into supplying 360⁰ excavators ranging from 2.5t – 30t, trenching equipment, confined space and many other items.
Following the transition period of both supplying the civil engineering division and HIRE division and now solely Vac-Ex HIRE, we re-branded to VAC-EX FLEET MANAGEMENT which best suits the service it now offers:
- Fully servicing & maintaining the company’s fleet of 22 Vans below 3t
- Fully servicing & maintaining the company’s fleet of 15 HGV chassis above 26t
- Fully servicing & maintaining the company’s fleet of 2 HGV chassis above 7.5t
- Fully servicing & maintaining the company’s fleet of 9 Plant trailers
- Complete bare overhaul of existing Vac-Ex units
- Fully servicing & maintaining the company’s fleet of 28 Vac-Ex units
We feel this separate independent FLEET division allows total focus on vehicle maintenance, safety, and compliance to VOSA regulations without deviation of other external influences.
It’s our priority to make sure all spares or parts are to hand, so any potential down time is negligible or at least minimised to our client.
Prevention is always our first line of defence, however, we all get caught out once in a while, so in preparation for this, Fleet run three dedicated service vehicles – just in case!.
