A fleet of eight new Vauxhall Movano box vans has just been handed over to Benchmarx Kitchens & Joinery.

Benchmarx will use the vans to deliver high quality, ready-assembled kitchens to tradespeople nationwide.

Vauxhall supplied the Movanos in platform cab body style before body manufacturers Lawrence David converted them into box body vans, making them better suited for transporting lightweight kitchens.

The finished vans provide Benchmarx with an increased payload and a lighter body conversion, compared to their previous vans. The handover took place at the opening of Benchmarx’s new Plymouth branch.

Derek Wilson, Vauxhall’s light commercial vehicle director, described the Movano as “the perfect choice” for businesses like Benchmarx, thanks to its class-leading payload, economy, versatility and driver comfort.

Benchmarx’s southern region operations director Steve Bareham commented: “The new Vauxhall vans will enable us to be far more efficient in our use both of time and fuel by rationalising the number of deliveries we make and creating a more efficient branch operation.”

Heather Stark, brand manager at The Fuelcard People, added: “Benchmarx could’ve picked any number of vans for its fleet, but it has chosen wisely with the Movano.”
