WHG choose Coopers to defleet the old and re-brand new fleet vehicles

Coopers were chosen by WHG for the prestigious task of defleeting their existing 200 plus fleet of WHG commercial vehicles which comprised of Ford Hi- roof Lwb transits, low roof transits, tippers, dropsides and connect vans alongside branding the new fleet of blue WHG vehicles comprising of similar numbers of ford vehicles included approximately 90 hi roof lwb ford transit vans, 90 ford transit custom vans, 25 dropsides / tippers and ford connects with reflective signage and illustrations tailored to each vehicle / end user occupation.

The whole project took place in-house at Coopers Wolverhampton based depot over a scheduled number of weeks to house approximately 210 new vehicles and defleet the previous 200 plus fleet. Coopers also provided WHG with container / storage and classroom space, fleet vehicle parking / storage and access to contractors for ply lining, telematics and swapping over the racking from the old fleet to the new vehicles all in house and in accordance with WHG schedule of work.


With such a large fleet in one place and four hundred plus vehicles passing through proved to be challenging yet both WHG and Coopers were able to deal well with the schedule of work, even under last minute changes. Any damaged vehicles upon arrival, both old and new were also repaired in-house prior to handover to WHG.

WHG Testimonial


Walsall Housing Group would like to take this opportunity to thank Cooper Commercial for the excellent service and workmanship when assisting and supporting whg in the mammoth task of de-fleeting and renewing its 210+ fleet of vehicles.

Cooper Commercial have the ability to provide a bespoke de-fleeting service, along with the ability to provide on-site paint repairs for any repairs on the old fleet and also the facility of supplying, designing and renewing the graphics for the new fleet, this assisted whg’s fleet swap over because it reduced the need to have vehicles moving about from location to location. Feedback from whg’s tenants on the quality of the vehicle image has been very well received.

Not only did Coopers provide whg with a defleet service, they also provided whg with adequate room and space for Walsall Housing Group’s contractors to work safely to enable the swapping of vehicle racking and also whg’s employee’s to safely swap from their old vehicle to their new vehicle.

whg’s new vehicles were completed on time, and the whg tradesmen were back out working with very minimal disruption. Bob Cooper and his team were on site on time each day ensuring the set-up and swap over went to plan through a very tight schedule.

Walsall Housing Group would have no hesitation in recommending Coopers to another one of its customers whether this being an existing customer or a prospective customer.
