Case story - Amerc
"The Vikan cleaning system has delivered in terms of cost, efficiency and the high quality finish required. And, because the brushes are so durable and well constructed, they also last for ever, making the Vikan system very economical."
- Warren Newstead, director at Amerc Executive Chauffeur Services.
Amerc Executive Chauffeur Services offer a compre-hensive service to the corporate and private sector. Based in Bournemouth, Dorset and operating throughout the UK and Europe, they are one of the leading chauffeur companies in the south of England.
Amerc take pride in offering an exceptional quality service at an affordable price. Maintaining their fleet of immaculate Mercedes Benz vehicles cost-effectively in pristine condition is, therefore, a top priority.
With high levels of corporate and prestigious private work, such as weddings and day excursions, Amerc aim to clean, polish and vacuum the cars between each job, however tight the turnaround. After ruling out jet washes because they are too expensive and time-consuming, while the sponge-and-detergent combination left residual limescale streaks, Amerc was looking for tools that could combine speed with effective results, would be easy, comfortable to use and would protect the paintwork.
From Vikan's comprehensive transport tool range, Amerc selected a number of Vikan's water-fed wash brushes. A choice of angled or adjustable brush heads deliver an increase in cleaning productivity by ensuring the nylon filaments maintain maximum contact with the vehicle surface. In addition, the solid polypropylene stocks have protective rubber edges that prevent any damage to paintwork.
Combined with one of a range of ergonomically designed telescopic water-fed handles, the wash brushes can be deployed just as quickly and effectively on the people carriers as the saloon cars, while the hand held squeegee, Wipe 'n' Shine, removes rinse water residues and limescale deposits. Staff use the rim brush to remove stubborn dirt from alloy wheel rims safely and effectively.
For interiors, Vikan's stiff brushes and microfibre-based cloths maintain upholstery and carpets in pristine condition, and the microfibre glove enables dust and grime removal from the awkward areas on the dashboard and around the controls.
