The South-West-based family-run business, which has humble beginnings as a private car hire operator ran from the family home now boasts a fleet of taxis, minibuses, coaches, recovery vehicles, and a purpose-built three-acre site.
“We’ve had our Merridale system since 2009 and it still works perfectly! We even chose to get Merridale to move it for us when we changed our depot location, rather than replace the system as it would have been a waste. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.” exclaimed Eurocoaches managing director, Keith Sanzo.
“Every time I go to a trade show, somebody tries to sell me a new system, but I’m not interested. With our Merridale system, I’m confident that every vehicle has a key, every driver has a code, and we know exactly how each of them is performing. But most importantly for me, in over ten years it has never broken down…”
They first invested in their Merridale system over ten years ago, when they installed a Merridale Auditor GS pump & management system and a Merridale FT tank management system at their depot in Yate, Bristol. These same systems have remained ever since, with the help of regular inspections and services, and an upgrade from Merridale’s FuelFX software to their better-performing web-based offering, FuelWorks.
“Every time I go to a trade show, somebody tries to sell me a new system, but I’m not interested. With our Merridale system, I’m confident that every vehicle has a key, every driver has a code, and we know exactly how each of them is performing. But most importantly for me, in over ten years it has never broken down. We’ve needed the odd repair due to wear and tear, but Merridale has always sorted that out straight away.”
Fleet operators who also wish to upgrade existing Merridale equipment to use FuelWorks need not worry about replacing hardware to do so. Merridale can upgrade most existing systems to make them compatible with FuelWorks, no matter how old the system is.
Since 1994, Merridale has been producing built-to-order products using only the best, tried, and tested components. With all Merridale products designed in-house to achieve a minimum life of 10 years and meet strict ATEX standards, there is no compromise on build quality. The housing units on Merridale’s products are designed to ensure that internal components are easily accessible for maintenance and repair, as well as being easy to update rather than having to replace the whole system.
