Christmas cheer is spreading throughout the entire team at Thomas Hardie Used Trucks. With the festivities fast approaching, our spirits were lifted even more when we opened our copy of Commercial Motors and found a glowing and complimentary piece featuring yours truly, and the recent sale of three used Volvo trucks by our good friends, Hawk Transport.
The three mid-lift axel 6x2s were from our sterling range of FH13 tractor units, complete with Volvo’s Euro-5 13-litre motor and delivering a perfectly powerful 460hp. Thanks to our new truck customisation service, Hawk’s Transport Manager, Mike Morgan was able to previously arrange for the trucks to be uprated from 44-tonne to 60-tonne GCW.
Mike was updating his fleet from 07-plate used Volvo trucks to the newer 11-plate model, to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and do their bit for the environment. We vinyl-wrapped the trucks in the latest Hawk livery, to keep the vehicles looking brilliant and on-brand – and we didn’t stop there. Our truck customisation service also covers your cab’s interior, so we fitted each of the trucks with fridges for the driver’s convenience.
Mike said to Commercial Motors, “We’ve been a regular customer for used Volvos since 2009 and we find the used Volvos sold by Thomas Hardie to be well presented. We deal with Jonathan Bownes there and the trucks always arrive in pristine condition.
“Mark Lingard, who looks after our new truck orders, is very professional and we receive exceptional service from the team at Thomas Hardie. We do price-up other makes of truck but the excellent relationship with Thomas Hardie helps them to deliver the best value package for our operation.”
It’s always great to read such fantastic praise from fellow truck enthusiasts, industry-insiders and, on this occasion, what sounds like a very happy customer. If you’re looking for great-value used Volvo trucks, or if you fancy installing a fridge in your cab, contact the team today – we’d be only too happy to tell you about our truck customisations, and wish you a very Merry Christmas while we’re at it!
