News from Renault: Family-run timber merchants, Basildon Timber Ltd, has taken delivery of a Range D10 low 4×2 210hp with aluminium flatbed body and manual gearbox.

The bright yellow Range D replaces Basildon Timber’s previous 2006 7.5 tonne Renault Midlum and marks a move up to 10 tonnes to take advantage of valuable extra payload and productivity.

It will undertake timber deliveries across Essex and into London for both trade and domestic customers. Commenting on the decision to select the 10 tonne Range D, Managing Director, John Cordery, Basildon Timber, says, “Our old 7.5 tonne Midlum was so reliable, it never let us down and was still running well but with the LEZ charges for delivering inside the M25 we needed to look at Euro-6. We decided to stay with Renault Trucks and go up to 10 tonnes with the Range D, which gives us more payload with all the manoeuvrability and accessibility of the 7.5 tonner. It has only been on the road a few weeks, but so far it’s running fantastic.”

Peter Thirkettle from Renault Trucks Essex, says, “Basildon Timber’s bright yellow livery is so distinctive on the road, and the Range D is a real head-turner. Their Renault Midlum gave years of reliable service and we’re sure the Range D will continue to deliver to the same high standard.”
