WridgWays investing in the future
WridgWays is investing in an upgrade to its national fleet and containers which will see it with it the newest and most efficient fleet in the Australian moving industry.
Since WridgWays’ return to Australian ownership at the start of 2019 significant changes have occurred which has seen the business return to a profitable position. Our fleet investment strategy commenced in 2019 and full delivery is expected in early 2020.
We have partnered with Brisbane Isuzu to implement the latest additions to our fleet, 12 NNR 45-150 TC-AMT MWB, and these have been on the road since the start of the October. The vehicles meet the current standards for new heavy vehicles for emissions based on the Euro V standards.
The 6-speed automated manual transmission vehicles have the highest safety rating, with drive and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control system (IESC), anti-skid regulator (ASR), cruise control, front and rear stabilising bar, and cornering lamps.
They are also highly economical with a 3.0 Litre Diesel Engine. In addition, they have the power and capability to meet the needs of short-distance and long-distance moves; GVM of 4,500kg, GCM of 8,000kg, power 110 kW/2800rpm and Torque 375 Nm/1600-2800rpm. They are covered by a 3-year Full Factory Warranty.
Our fleet investment strategy is set to reduce operation costs and decrease our environmental footprint, reducing our overall emissions and delivering a more economical and efficient moving fleet.
WridgWays CEO, Kobus Fourie said “I am very proud of the WridgWays brand and it’s a privilege to work with a heritage brand. To see the Isuzu vehicles on the road is a great step in building customer recognition of our revitalised brand and to re-establish trust in the brand.”
