Ipswich Borough Council requires a Skip Loader to replace a current vehicle that has reached the end of its useful life.


The Crown Commercial Services Framework Agreement – RM6060 has been used to identify suitable vehicles. This framework allows a comparison of vehicle specifications, pricing and selection of the vehicle most appropriate. The best value vehicle for IBC use was identified as the Mercedes-Benz Econic 1827 L 4x2 mounted with Hyva loading equipment.


The decision made was to purchase these vehicles from Mercedes Benz at a total cost of £108,501.60 after discount.
