The Vito Drives Miles of Smiles for Owner Driver Hywel Thomas

Thursday 22nd October 2015

Mr H Thomas

With nearly 700,000 miles on the clock of his previous vehicle, it’s safe to say that Welsh owner driver, Hywel Thomas has truly tried and tested the Mercedes-Benz Vito.

Making his fourth Vito purchase from Rygor, the UK’s largest Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Dealer group, this month, this Vito advocate has never looked back since buying his first Mercedes-Benz Vito in 2000.

Mr Thomas, said: “The Mercedes-Benz Vito is my top choice of vehicle. I choose it because I know I can rely on it to do the job I need. This will be the fourth Vito which I have bought in the last couple of decades and with the launch of the new model earlier this year, I am really looking forward to getting behind the wheel.

“I specialise in airport transfer to all UK airports, frequently London, so many of my passengers are starting or finishing their holidays in my Vito. It’s essential that I offer them, not only a reliable journey to make sure they make their flights on time, but also a comfortable one, so they can begin and end their holiday in style,” Mr Thomas added.

Customer comfort and safety is a top priority for Hywel, but spending between 22 and 28 days a month in the Vito himself, it is also essential that the van meets his needs as a driver too.

“It’s true, the Vito can almost become my second home! I spend so much time in it, especially driving up and down the M4 corridor, so it’s important to me that it is also an enjoyable vehicle to drive. It has great manoeuvrability, is a strong and robust eight-seater and most importantly, boasts excellent fuel economy, which is essential from a business perspective.

“I am very impressed with the service I have received from Rygor. Elena at Rygor’s Reading branch has been especially prompt and professional, which is exactly what I need from a Dealer. A good working relationship like this allows me to concentrate on running my business, knowing that they have my vehicle needs in hand,” Mr Thomas added.

Elena Eton, van sales manager at Rygor Reading, said: “Helping people drive their business forward is one of the reasons I love my job and I don’t think I have ever seen a Vito eight-seater with as many miles on the clock as Mr Thomas’! I am thrilled that Mr Thomas enjoys working with myself and the rest of the team at Rygor and benefits from our knowledge of both the product and the industry. Here’s to another 700,000 miles!”
