Recently, Rand-Air ‘passed the test’ with flying colours, delivering a 24-hour turnaround hire to a tertiary education college in Gauteng:
Rand-Air recently supplied generators to certain of the college’s campuses, as part of a repeat hire contract agreement with this customer.
“This is a long-standing, loyal customer from way back in 2008, when Rand-Air developed a relationship with a college which has several campuses located throughout the province – and they have been a pleasure to service since 2014,” says Benita Oosthuizen, Sales Consultant for Rand-Air Gauteng.
Oosthuizen explains that the college’s campuses require standby power to be available during the bi-annual examinations which take place throughout the country.
“With students working on laptops, the last thing one needs is a power shortage,” she observes, adding that until recently, Rand-Air supplied generators to each of the campuses, twice a year.
For the most recent hire, three generators were supplied – two 300kVA and one 500kVA. During the recent national lockdown, some of the campuses – depending on their proximity to each other – merged.
“The hire was placed on the 4th September, a Friday, for delivery on that Saturday, 5th September, finishing on the 25th September.” This 24-hour turn-around required logistical juggling which was met with the trademark smooth delivery and expectation-exceeding service for which Rand-Air is so well-known.
“We were able to meet the strict delivery deadline of the generators to the various campuses, in time for examinations to commence on the Monday. So we passed the test with flying colours — and no crib notes needed!” Oosthuizen concludes.
