Energy saving firm hits the road with new fuel efficient fleet

Forget “driving home for Christmas” – Leicester-based energy saving experts BillSaveUK will drive to new build sites and residential properties to install home insulation this winter using its brand new fleet of fuel efficient vehicles.

The Leicester-based installation business has recently taken delivery of 15 new DAF LF 150 Euro 6 7.5 tonne lorries and a 12 tonne scaffolding lorry, with a further five 7.5 tonne lorries expected early next year. The company’s investment in a brandedc fleet marks a significant step in moving away from the Mark Group vehicles it had been using since its management buyout in October 2015.

The new fleet has been designed to meet the specific needs of BillSaveUK’s principle business installing cavity wall and loft insulation at new build sites and as retrofit measures, as well as supporting its growing scaffolding, solar PV and electrical services divisions.

Jamie Bogg, BillSaveUK’s head of transport and environment, said: “Our business is built around achieving energy efficiency for our customers and we feel it’s important to uphold the same objectives across our operations – from generating electricity through solar PV systems installed at our branches, to ensuring our commercial fleet is as fuel efficient as possible.

“Whilst the recognition we’ll gain through having our vehicles properly branded on the roads and easily identifiable at installation sites is good news for the business, the specification we’ve chosen means we’ll be able to operate and manage a far more efficient fleet than ever before. This will enable us to provide an even better service to our customers, aiding future business growth”.

The fleet will be distributed across BIllSaveUK’s branch network with the first 15 vehicles to be located in Leicester, Leeds, Newcastle and Wednesbury.
