What I do.
My role is to sell quality used Volvo trucks to all members of the UK and Ireland. It is my duty to provide only the best trucks at the highest level of quality. I believe straight-forward talking, honesty and the customers needs are all our highest priorities and these fundamental points are what makes Thomas Hardies the market leading company it is today.

What I enjoy most about working with THUVS.
Every day involves working alongside a variety of people from all walks of life. I also appreciate our fantastic, hard-working team we have and I’m proud to stand alongside the best of the best.

Something you might not know about me.
I can’t deal with odd numbers, I’m sure there’s a word for it. TV volume or the heater setting on my car can’t be an odd number. It should be called even-number OCD!

I’m tasked with selling used trucks within the Northwest and to secure maintenance packages along the way.

Mobile: 07585 046430

What I do.
I sell trucks that are at the higher mileage end of the spectrum or otherwise fall into our Economy offer. I also sell used & new part ex trucks that return off customers.
Lastly, I export trucks to all corners of the globe. From the Congo, Zambia, Greece, Wales, London, and Wigan.

What I enjoy most about working with THUVS
I enjoy the camaraderie and how much of a close-knit group we are. We can all have a laugh and joke together, but when a job needs doing, the team bands together to get the work done. Representing Thomas Hardie’s in a role that is relatively new to the group is brilliant and unlocks the opportunity for me to dial in my skills and provide a professional service for our customers.
