Any customers who work with family-run Holmes Real Estate have access to a Fuso 515 Canter to haul personal and large items, so they don’t need to rent a truck when they need to move. "It’s obviously very useful for people moving house, but a lot of customers also use it to declutter a house they are preparing to sell," says Troy Holmes of Holmes Real Estate. "It’s available for anyone who has been a customer; they don’t have to be buying or selling, they may just want to pick up a lounge suite or other bulky item."
Drives Like A Car
The Fuso 515 Canter can be driven with a car licence, and Holmes Real Estate selected the Duonic automated transmission option to further simplify operation. "That was an easy decision,” explains Holmes. “The automated transmission just makes the truck so much more accessible.” The relatively compact footprint also makes the Fuso 515 Canter feel less daunting to drive than other commercial vehicles. “This truck really feels like a big car, it is easy to manoeuvre and has a great turning circle," he says.
The Latest In Safety
The Canter 515’s suite of safety features was another major benefit for Holmes Real Estate. Customers who borrow the truck are protected by Fuso’s Advanced Emergency Braking System, Lane Departure Warning System, and Electric Stability Control. “The anti-collision technology was certainly a big factor for us, because the safety of our customers is paramount," says Holmes. "We want to do everything that we can to make them as safe as possible." The Canter 515 also features five high-resolution cameras around the truck, which can be viewed on the 7-inch touchscreen display to help when manoeuvring the truck in tight spaces.
