Courtesy Canter Moves Holmes Real Estate Customers

Family-run Holmes Real Estate has introduced the car licence category 515 Canter, which is available at no charge for the agency’s customers to use when buying or selling their homes.

“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,” said Troy Holmes, who runs the business with his wife Rebekah and son Kane.

“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.”

Holmes said the Canter 515 was chosen due to its active safety features, its ease of use for customers who may not have driven commercial vehicles before and for the lengthy five year/200,000kilometre manufacturer warranty.

Fuso was first to introduce Advanced Emergency Braking System technology for the light truck class in Australia and it is standard on all 4×2 Canter models. This system uses radar technology that can automatically brake the truck if it senses an imminent collision and can also detect, and start braking for, moving pedestrians.

Also standard is a Lane Departure Warning System, Electric Stability Control and airbags for the driver and passenger.

“The anti-collision technology was certainly a big factor for us because the safety of our customers is paramount,” said Holmes. “We want to do everything that we can to make them as safe as possible.”

Holmes Real Estate went a step further and added five high-resolution cameras, the images from which can be viewed on the standard seven-inch centre touch screen display, as well as a speed limiter and GPS tracking.

“This truck really feels like a big car, it is easy to manoeuvre and has a great turning circle,” said Holmes.

The Fuso Duonic automated transmission option takes away the need for drivers to use a clutch. The Canter is fitted-out with a trolley, straps and blankets similar to a professional removalist vehicle.

“Our customers really appreciate having access to the truck,” said Holmes. “They don’t need to go to the trouble and expense of renting a truck every time they need to move something bulky.”

In addition to the many benefits the Canter brings his customers, Holmes said the courtesy truck is also a very effective way of promoting his business.

“Apart from all the other positives, it also makes a terrific mobile billboard,” he said.
