After a 3 year tied in contract with Volvo, we have taken the positive step of once again purchasing our own vehicles to complement our fleet.
January 2016 saw the company taking receipt of 22 tractor units and 8 trailers at a circa cost of just over £2m.
August 2016 has seen the company also start to take receipt of the 10 new rigid vehicles that are on order. By the end of October 2016 we will be the proud owners of 3 new 18 tonne and 7 new 26 tonne Volvo rigid vehicles.
These have been brought in to replace the current rigid fleet which we feel are now ready for upgrade.
In addition to the above, by the end of September 2016, the company will have taken receipt of 4 additional Moffetts and adaptor kits. This will bring the number of vehicles that will be complemented with a Moffett to 12.
All of the new vehicles are being placed on a Volvo maintenance contract which will ensure that the vehicles are on the road, are reliable, and are maintained to the highest spec at all times.
