And it’s the work that the company does in the all-important after-sales arena that seems to be just as important a factor for repeat purchasers of the Japanese truck brands products.
One of those loyal customers in the long-established Tutt Bryant.
The company is one of Australia’s largest crane, construction equipment hire and equipment distribution companies, with over 400 staff operating Australia-wide.
“Part of my role is to select the best possible equipment for the job, and to maintain it through its whole working life, right up to resale.
“The last company I worked for had a wide range of trucks, including Isuzu and their competitors. We found the total cost of the truck life was better with Isuzu – they came out on top with servicing, reliability and re-sale value.
“For us the service network and the whole package Isuzu provides is second to none, and with my previous knowledge, it’s a no-brainer.”
While one feature that Mick has insisted the Isuzu trucks must have is Isuzu Telematics.
“Telematics is one of the reasons we’re continuing with Isuzu trucks. We can run them all off Isuzu Telematics and keep an eye on all the trucks on the one system.”
