Lawnrite, a lawn care service provider to the domestic consumer, has taken delivery of its first FIAT Doblò Cargo Maxi vans for its Conway and Chester branches for use with its professional lawn care services throughout the UK.
Lawnrite has chosen the Maxi version from the Doblò Cargo range for its capacious 4.2M3 load space which allows the company to comfortably transport lawn care machinery, materials and equipment across the country safely and efficiently. The shape and size of the Doblò Cargo Maxi also provides a large area of "real estate" for sign-writing and advertising, helping this growing UK firm to get noticed by even more potential customers.
According to Jeff Williams, Managing Director for Lawnrite, "FIAT Professional has provided the perfect product for a lawn care business with the new Doblò Cargo Maxi; spacious, agile and perfectly proportioned for impactful livery. The FIAT Corporate Fleet team couldn't have been more helpful in developing a system for delivery of the new vehicles to our franchisees. The finance team have also been second to none in facilitating a smooth handover of the vehicles. The Doblò is the key element in our franchise package, the help FIAT Professional have provided in ensuring that the franchisee is on the road from the outset of their new business simply adds to the perfect start for our branches. We look forward to developing and strengthening our relationship with FIAT Professional as our businesses and lawn care fleet grows."
FIAT Professional is keen to support its small and medium sized business customers as well as the larger companies it supplies to, and the versatility and adaptability of the FIAT Doblò Cargo range perfectly accommodates each customer's needs regardless of fleet size or requirements. With a payload of up to one tonne and a load volume of up to 5.0M3, the Doblò Cargo has impressive carrying capacity both in terms of weight and size, which makes it ideal for commercial use. Its engine range provides low running costs and emissions, while a large number of variants are offered, making an excellent range of choice for any business looking to either expand or make changes to their fleet.
Sebastiano Fedrigo, Head of Brand, FIAT Professional UK, commented, "It's fantastic to work with the fleets and businesses that we do. It is a great benefit that the newly launched FIAT Doblò Cargo Maxi can be used by rapidly growing small businesses such as Lawnrite, as well as being used in larger fleets across the country. Having recently won the A2Z Vans overall Van of the Year 2015 accolade, it's important for us to build on this success and ensure we're creating new, successful and prosperous relationships with companies of all sizes. We are delighted that Lawnrite has chosen FIAT Professional UK to supply these first two vehicles and we look forward to working with them as their fleet continues to grow."

Lawnrite was launched in 2014 by lawn care business entrepreneur, Jeff Williams. Having managed over 200 lawn care businesses over the past 15 years, Jeff Williams has put over 700 commercial vehicles on the road.
Lawnrite provides professional lawn care services to the domestic consumer, taking away the uncertainty many people have when treating their own lawn. Lawns can be left patchy and possibly burnt with defiant weeds still growing without expert care. Lawnrite address this problem by using a franchising system that allows franchises to apply professional feeds and weed control to lawns with outstanding results.
