As a leading UK supplier…

Dawsongroup sweepers provide invaluable expertise and a UK wide network that supports all municipal and industrial vehicle operations. Our service is tailored to individual requirements, making municipal and industrial equipment management easier than ever before. Customers are assigned a personal relationship manager and a service controller that assists them every step of the way, ensuring their vehicles are serviced and maintained to the very highest standards.

 

The vehicles we supply range from precinct street and pedestrian industrial sweepers through to large chassis-mounted road sweepers and specialist vehicles, all available through multiple funding models that protect business capital.

 

When looking for equipment, there are many different aspects that need to be considered and questions that need to be answered. Our short guide below explains why you should choose Dawsongroup sweepers for all your asset requirements.

Flexibility

Every company has its fair share of changes in demands. With leased or purchased assets change can be difficult and costly. With rental, you are given more options to change equipment as your requirements change. We can ensure that your fleet is adapted to fit your operation, and with rental, there is a lower rate for exchanging or taking back equipment when your requirement does change. If you need to extend your contract, we can give you the option of a contract extension with the same machine or with a newer machine.

Fleet Availability

When planning ahead, we make sure that we have the stock ready for when you need it. Due to the buying power of the Dawsongroup, we can purchase bulk amounts of stock ready for when the demand hits. We have a nationwide coverage of field service engineers, meaning that wherever your machine breaks down, we can have a response to you within four hours and with our 92% 24 hour fix rate, we can have your machine back on the road the next day. If we can't get your machine back on the road, we can also give the option of a replacement while yours is out of service.

Whole Lifetime Cost

Rental rates are as competitive today as they have ever been, but this is only part of the cost of the machine during its life. Maintenance costs are fixed with a rental and included in your weekly rate, meaning that you have less to worry about when it comes to machine break downs and defects. If your decision is to purchase, we can provide a full service and maintenance package tailored to suit your needs due to our team of manufacturer trained engineers in our workshops and on the road across the UK. Our high standard of service and maintenance then enables the residual value to be at its highest at the end of the vehicle's life.

Manufacturer Relationships

For a number of years, we have been building relationships not just with our customers, but our suppliers. We are currently working with some of the largest manufacturers in the industry, including Johnston, Scarab, Schmidt, Whale, Dennis Eagle, Farid, Thompsons and Tennant. Our relationship means that we can be flexible in our equipment, if you have a specific requirement, we can find a machine that fits your need. Also, we are constantly working with the manufacturer on their product development and helping them improve their products.

Impartial Advice

When purchasing from a manufacturer, you are limited to their equipment. With Dawsongroup, we work with a number of different suppliers to give you a bigger range of options for your fleet. Our Sales Executives are fully trained by our manufacturers in the latest technology so they can give you the best advice on the fleet mix that works for your requirement. As we are part of a larger group, we can also provide you with expertise on other vehicle types that your business may require, including material handling equipment, vans, trucks and trailers, buses and coaches and even cold storage equipment.

Review Meetings

As a company we are very customer focussed. We know that you want the best for your fleet, including the lowest amount of downtime and the highest quality service package. As a part of your contract, we can offer monthly, quarterly or bi-annually review meetings to discuss service performance and review any out of contract costs. We can also provide you with weekly or monthly KPI's to help you keep on top of your operator and our engineer performance. In doing this we can make sure that you are getting the best solution for your business and improve our already high standard of service without compromising your operation.
