Why did Industroclean choose the Opel Combo Van to be their business partner?
When it comes to customer support, mobile technicians need to safely transport costly, high-end and often heavy goods and machinery into the field, which means technical support and easy access to products and spare parts is high priority. The Award-winning* Opel Combo Cargo Van affords Industroclean to maintain their commitment of superior after-sales support to their past, existing, as well as their new customers through their strategic network of 9 branches and 4 partners across South Africa , and now they have the extra assistance of the '2019 International Van of the Year'* (VOTY) – the Opel Combo Cargo!
A Fleet Manager’s purchase decision is based on the value of a vehicle, beyond just the retail price. Return on Investment (ROI) is key with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) being the ultimate solution sought. The Award-winning* Opel Combo fully meets both these requirements for Industroclean. When considering the bottom line the Combo’s state-of-the-art 1.6 Turbo Diesel engine offers more efficiency, plus the fuel combustion is 15 – 20% less, with a returned combined consumption of 5L/100 km. Low-speed torque allows for better overtaking, towing and gear choice offered by the car-derived running gear which affords the driver enough pulling power to keep up in traffic, considering 230 Nm of Torque and 68 kW of Power are readily available through gear choice and acceleration.
With safety, comfort & security a top priority, the Combo Van not only keeps the driver and passenger road-safe and comfortable with Airbags, 3-Point Seatbelts, Hill-Start Assist, ABS, EBD and ESP + Air-Conditioning, Radio/Bluetooth®/USB/MP3 Input and 4 Speakers, but just as important, offers maximum protection for valuable cargo and equipment by keeping it out of sight in the alarm-equipped, enclosed shell that is an integral part of the vehicle’s body due to the blacked-out windows, remote-controlled central locking, rear interior electronic door lock and an anti-theft immobiliser. In addition, Industroclean’s high-quality external locks on the 3 body doors, offers more protection to their valuable contents, meaning they don’t need to empty out the cargo space when servicing the vehicle.
The flexibility of the Combo Van is geared towards your personal business needs and can be tailored to suit your requirements. The protected steel box created by the Combo’s body shape, plus floor tie-downs to eliminate movement and reduce inner-body damage, allows for endless 'up-fitment' opportunities such as shelving, storage bins, toolboxes, refrigeration, compressor and air-line fitment – flexibility to kit out in order to suit your moving business environment.
Industroclean chose the LWB Combo Cargo configuration which offers a length of 4 753 mm and generous width of 1 848 mm, delivering a superior payload of up to 1 tonne and a towing capacity of up to 1 250 kg with a braked trailer, offering the versatility required for superior field after-sales service. The Combo Van's enclosed square-shaped body and rear cargo area offers up to a massive 4.4 maximum cubic metres of load space with a flat floor and no intrusion from the wheel arches – perfectly customised into the perfect mobile work space with convenient custom modular fitments in the cargo area to house a variety of equipment required in the field while attending to their customers' equipment maintenance. The van's lower load floor height allows for efficient and easier manoeuvring of goods and equipment, both in and out of the two sliding side doors (LWB) and extended dual-opening back doors. Industroclean's exterior body branding is their 'moving billboard' for product awareness due to the potential of more than 70 000 pairs of eyes per day seeing their name in busier metro areas.
Need a rear-view camera for increased rear visibility? There’s a simple solution which offers that extra peace of mind when manoeuvring in tight areas. An easily installed camera-eye on the licence plate, plus a quality screen unit strategically placed on the dashboard, affords you that extra ‘eyes’ out back.
