As one of the largest vehicle breakdown providers in the UK, the RAC have been at the forefront of developing motoring solutions for more than 120 years. The company, who have been working in partnership with Nissan, came to Bri-Stor with a very particular specification.
partnership with Nissan, came to Bri-Stor with a very particular specification.
RAC needed to develop 26 Nissan NV300 vans that were to be used by the RAC mobile technicians. These vehicles needed to be specifically kitted out to meet the technician’s needs which is being completed in partnership with Nissan.
The NV300s needed to be fully kitted out so that the RAC technicians could complete their work at the customers’ home or work place. Going directly to the customer would allow for disruption to be kept at minimum while keeping the customer experience as a priority.
RAC emphasised the importance that the NV300 fleet was clearly branded and designed in a way that the customer could easily distinguish between the roadside team and their mobile technicians.
Our lightweight racking was manufactured and then fitted along the near side and off side of the vehicle. This racking was specifically designed in a way that space was utilised to ensure that there was plenty of storage for the tools that were required for the job.
Additional safety features were also added to the Nissan NV300s, including yellow grab handles to ensure easy access into the Vehicle. A lockable locker was also installed at the bulkhead, allowing drivers to store their high value equipment, giving them safe storage of their tools.
Bri-Stor’s in house graphics department ‘Hex Signs & Graphics’ were also utilised on this project. They ensured that the livery applied reflected the partnership between RAC and Nissan.
RAC were in need of a partner who was flexible and able to fulfill van fit outs at short notice. The excellent relationship that was already held with Bri-Stor allowed for this to happen. The collaboration between Bri-Stor and the RAC, is a relationship that has been a positive one for a number of years due to the fit out of the RAC core roadside fleet.
Bri-Stor have worked closely alongside the RAC fleet team to ensure that internal specifications and secure storage solutions met all technical requirements.
“We’re really pleased with the look and functionality of the new Nissan NV300 fleet. It’s important for both RAC and Nissan that customers in line for the work, which is done at their home or at their workplace, have complete confidence that they are dealing with a professional technician. The look and design of the van in the fleet certainly reflects that” – Phil Ryan, RAC MD Business Roadside.
