Dry freight commercial vehicle bodybuilder Bevan Group is hunting for experienced mobile service technicians to strengthen its renowned Aftercare and On-site Repairs division.
As well as supplying high-quality box, curtainside and platform bodies to some of the biggest names on Britain’s roads, Bevan has forged a reputation for top-quality repair and maintenance services.
Unlike its competitors, Bevan maintains its own team of mobile technicians who provide nationwide cover on a 24-hour callout basis.
“That level of service sets us apart in this industry,” says Aftercare Manager Roy Shelton. “And it explains why even operators who choose to buy their bodies from our competitors often rely on us to maintain them.
As well as maintaining and repairing bodies, they look after cab bodywork, tail-lifts and other ancillary equipment fitted to customers’ vehicles, and retro-fit a range of solutions to provide safety for staff working at height, including Bevan’s Skyhook inertia-reel safety harness and KeepNet removable side netting panels.
Bevan currently has 20 mobile engineers on the road. But such is the demand for their services, and so committed is the West Midlands-based company to providing the very highest standard of aftercare, that it has now launched a major drive to swell their ranks.
“We’re keen to recruit a significant number of seasoned, hard-working and self-sufficient professionals, who might be located anywhere in the country,” confirmed Aftercare Manager Roy Shelton.
“The job offers excellent pay and great conditions, and the opportunity to be involved in a professional, forward-looking and highly successful business. Our engineers enjoy interesting and varied work, serving ‘blue-chip’ operators, and have responsibility for their own areas.”
Bevan’s Mercedes-Benz Sprinter service vans – their superhero-themed liveries designed and applied by the company’s own Graphics division – are racked out to carry the tools and equipment its engineers need to work on vehicles at customers’ own locations.
“It’s our task to protect Bevan Group’s hard-earned reputation and to build on it still further,” Roy continues. “So we’re constantly striving to increase our coverage and improve response times, and bring in systems to help the business run more smoothly.”
To this end, Bevan is also trialling a new system of hand-held computer tablets for its mobile engineers – not only will these allow forms to be filled in online, thus reducing both time and paperwork, they will also provide the ability or photographs and even video footage to be relayed instantly to estimators back at Bevan’s head office, so quotations can be provided much more quickly.
