Six Peugeot Boxer 335 120 Chassis Cabs fitted with aluminium drop-side tipper bodies have been drafted in to keep the parks and gardens of Eastbourne in tip-top condition.
The Boxer vans, supplied to Wyevale Grounds Maintenance by Peugeot Robins and Day, Cribbs Causeway, form part of an £800,000 contract won by the company to provide grounds maintenance services to Eastbourne Council. One of the key stipulations supporting the win was that they had to be all-new vehicles to benefit from being the most efficient, economical and environmentally friendly while demonstrating the investment being made in this initiative; the Boxer Chassis Cabs are the first instalment of this investment.
The six medium wheel-base Peugeot Boxers will transport the majority of Eastbourne’s Parks and Grounds Maintenance equipment and its crew around the Borough tending to areas such as the prestigious Carpet Gardens on Eastbourne’s seafront. Peugeot’s Boxer chassis fulfilled this requirement by providing a comprehensive value proposition combining high build quality, dependability, economy from its HDi diesel engines while being both safe and highly capable.
During the tender, the Council placed an emphasis on value-for-money and the environmental impact of its fleet. Reliability and efficiency was also a key consideration for Wyevale as its contract with Eastbourne will cover service delivery for the borough over the next 10 years.
The Peugeot Boxer is available in a number of configurations including: Panel vans, Window vans, Chassis cabs and a Single crew cab options, with long, medium and short wheelbases. The full Peugeot Boxer range is also available with a range of HDi 110, 120 and 157bhp engines.
