Tenens opts to buy rather than lease

Howard Tenens has bought four rigid trucks with bodies designed and built by Winsford-based Tiger Trailers – the first time it has opted for outright ownership over contract hire.

The bodies are mounted to two 7.5-tonne Mercedes-Benz Ategos and two 18-tonne Mercedes-Benz Antos trucks.

Richard Philpotts, national fleet and compliance manager for Howard Tenens, said: “Tiger Trailers built one of the double deck trailers we have on contract hire, so we had absolute confidence in the build quality and reliability. When combined with a very competitive price, we saw the potential for some significant savings to our operation; it made choosing ownership over contract hire a viable option.”
