Hino South Africa (SA) has completed an order for 33 mobile offices for the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Department of Home Affairs.

The fully equipped mobile offices will service some of KZN’s most remote rural areas.

The office bodies were constructed by SA Van Conversions/Bubhezi, located in Pinetown, KZN.

The mobile offices were mounted on Hino 300 816 chassis/cabs, which are powered by a four-litre turbo-diesel engine driving the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.

SA Van Conversions/Bubhezi, which operates in conjunction with Transpec, another KZN body builder, has a long record of conversions of vans and chassis-cabs to ambulances, mobile laboratories, mobile offices and taxis, and has been involved with Toyota South Africa Motors and Hino SA in previous projects.

“Our core responsibility at KZN Home Affairs is to ensure that every South African citizen in our province has access to our services, but we are aware that our footprint and presence in some of the far-flung and remote areas of the province needs to be improved,” notes KZN Home Affairs provincial manager Cyril Mncwabe.

“We see these Hino-based mobile offices as an effective solution to serving citizens who previously had great difficulty getting to Home Affairs offices in the cities.

“The Hino 300’s low average fuel consumption of approximately 15 l/100 km to 18 l/100km, and its record for reliability and durability, were significant factors in the decision by Home Affairs to buy our made-in-KZN Hino 300 trucks for their mobile offices,” says Hino SA tender and fleet sales manager Mengas Mokoena.
