FULL SERVICE FOR FLEET VAN OPERATORS
AVS Steps is the only step manufacture that provides a nationwide fitting service, and over the last 12-18 months this after-sales support has proved essential to the many van fleet operators who are now fitting steps to vehicles to address new health and safety concerns relating to repetitive strain injuries and manual handling.
“Managed via a network of accredited service agents in 52 locations nationwide, AVS Steps’ unique fitting and maintenance service provides customers with quality assured service levels,” confirms Keith Clarke, AVS Steps’ Managing Director. “Customers can be assured that our service agents are approved and fully trained in AVS Steps’ manual and electric step ranges, and can be confident that the best resource and skill sets will be available to ensure that VOR is kept to an absolute minimum.”
We see this cradle to grave service as a very important differentiator, and means we can also respond rapidly to customer’s needs. For example, in the run up to Christmas last year, we supplied and fitted 50+ vehicles for National Grid on site, across the UK,” said Keith.
In the fleet van market, AVS Steps also works closely with all the major UK vehicle conversion companies and in partnership with vehicle leasing companies like BT Fleet, LEX, TSL and the Dawson Group.
As the world’s largest automotive step specialist, and with over 15 years’ experience, AVS Steps is a specialist in the design and manufacture of steps, and its extensive product range ensures that the right step is fitted on the right vehicle. To suit the van fleet market, AVS Steps has developed a range of electric and foot-operated steps in various configurations which can then be modified by step height, tread or width for example, to suit company’s individual needs and specific vehicle requirements (side and rear access).
