BTHS | BTHS joins Highways England in utilising this fit for purpose 4 x 4 onto the UK network
Bespoke Traffic and Highways Solutions Ltd (BT-HS) have recently taken delivery of their first order of the impressive SsangYong Musso pick-up truck.
BT-HS decided to procure the Musso after visiting the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC, learning that SsangYong had been awarded a new contract with Highways England to supply the pick-up truck as a Crown Commercial Services provider.
Phil Glaiser, Managing Director of BT-HS told us:
“We had already decided to look into diversifying our fleet into other vehicle types and manufacturers.
“When we spoke with the team at SsangYong and looked at their Musso range, we decided we would trial the vehicle for an extended period. During the trial, we found that the vehicle is perfectly suited for the markets we supply into and was a great compliment to the range of vehicles we already provide.
“The fact that Highways England has confidence in the product and its suitability was a huge bonus for us when making a decision to utilise these vehicles beyond a trial.”
“The vehicles are modified by BT-HS to be fitted with hi-visibility livery, prominent 360-degree lighting including a roof-mounted beacon light bar all compliant with R65 and Chapter 8 legislation.
BT-HS also have the vehicles fitted with tracking systems, tow bars and hardtops with interior lighting.
“It’s important for us to keep our vehicles worthy of our company mantra of ‘Safety and Quality’. This vehicle meets both of those without fail.
“The Musso has already proven to us that it is a versatile and reliable product; we found this in our road and towing trials.
“The quality of the vehicle far exceeded our expectations and we know that our customers will feel the same.”
The Musso range on BT-HS’ fleet are all automatic, are capable of carrying a payload of 1,000kg and come with a towing capacity of 3,500kg.
They come with a full service and maintenance provision and are also covered by SsangYong’s 7-year manufacturer’s warranty.
