Efficient partnership

Austrian commercial vehicle rental company KLV Rent Nutzfahrzeuge GesmbH has added swap chassis from Schmitz Cargobull to its rental fleet.

Reliability and Product Quality

The A.WF trailer swap chassis, Z.WF central axle swap chassis and S.CF semi-trailer container chassis have strengthened the rental company's extensive range in Austria.

Owner and Managing Director of KLV Rent, Bernd Kaindlsdorfer, says: "I am very pleased that Schmitz Cargobull has expanded its range of swap bodies. Due to the long-standing partnership and our positive experience in terms of reliability and product quality, we have ordered directly from Schmitz Cargobull again. We deliberately rely on a strong partner to offer our customers maximum durability and operational safety."  

As an extension of its product portfolio, Schmitz Cargobull reintroduced the A.WF and Z.WF swap chassis for the transport of swap bodies after several years, in addition to the semi-trailer container chassis. 

These vehicles are particularly adaptable with a wide range of parking heights and are characterised by a simple and robust design and are optimally equipped to facilitate efficient handling of swap bodies. The chassis are also available in hot-dip galvanised design.

Dietmar Lehner, Prokurist at KLV Rent, says: “Hot-dip galvanising is an absolute quality feature for us and was one of the decisive factors in our decision to use Schmitz Cargobull products." 

The hot-dip galvanised chassis is corrosion-resistant and offers optimum protection against rust-through. All galvanised parts in the chassis are covered by a 10-year warranty against rust-through. This contributes to high residual value clearly reflected in any resale. For commercial vehicles, galvanising offers optimum surface protection, as conventional mechanical stresses in everyday transport do not leave any lasting traces.

KLV Rent has been active in the commercial vehicle industry for more than 35 years and is one of the leading manufacturer-independent commercial vehicle rental companies in Austria and Germany. Originally focused on the commercial vehicle trade, KLV Rent expanded into the rental business in 1989. KLV Rent currently has four locations in Austria, where a total of approx. 550 vehicles are currently in use.
