The first of many UVS Round-ups start here. Discover Donegal Haulage and their fantastic 540BHP FH transformation. K.Hamiltons progress regarding a Volvo purchased earlier this year. VolvoTrucksUK pay Middlewich a visit, bringing with them the new wave of Volvo trucks. Plus we talk Covid…unfortunately.
Kicking things off is Jolene Mc Bride and her FH540. Receiving a complete overhaul throughout this year, this family orientated Volvo pays homage to the founding father of Donegal Haulage, who since stepping down back in 1995, has left his impression courtesy of a fantastic airbrush piece on the rear of the cab. Still working alongside Jolene who took over in 2013, the artwork is dedicated to her father who still puts the hours in to this day. The customisation doesn’t end there. Colour-coded side skirts, wing tops, light bars, upgraded A-frame and catwalks are just small selection of extras this Volvo received.

This bold FH500 arrived in Middlewich alongside two others of similar spec. Receiving a little extra treatment before sale, dirt deflectors, chrome front steps, silver front grille and a lower bib spoiler were fitted to improve road presence and to offer our customers something a little different from the norm. As a result, these subtle alterations combined with the fantastic Blue Eye Pearl colour came together to produce a fantastic looking truck that will definitely look the part whilst out working. These ‘blues brothers’ also received tipping gear equipment courtesy of Thomas Hardie Vehicle Solutions based in Chorley for certain buyers, assuring customers these units were fit for purpose come collection day.
Milk haulage specialist K.Hamilton Haulage kindly updated us on the current state of affairs regarding his stunning 4×2 FHV4 that’s been under the knife this year, producing an impressive truck that sits worlds apart from it’s ‘For Sale’ days back on the forecourt. Fresh alloys, full paint job, dazzling lightbars and striking decals help this Volvo pop and is most definitely a looker!
The power of referrals should never be underestimated as Kieron proved. Visiting via a tip-off from a fellow used Volvo owner. Porter Haulage purchased their Volvo earlier in the year and informed Kieron that the Middlewich sales team were the right people for him.
‘The Used Vehicle team spared no effort in guaranteeing my newest truck was ready and prepared to a professional standard.’
‘Seeing it’s sister truck and what’s achievable with these Volvo’s meant I couldn’t resist getting my hands on one.’

VolvoTrucksUk Middlewich Visit
VolvoTrucksUk’s tour displaying the future of the Volvo FH, FM and FMX rolled into Middlewich back in October, giving staff and local customers a great opportunity to get to grips with what Volvo are bringing to the table.
Various local customers visited the Middlewich site, receiving insightful tours courtesy of Volvo representatives and New Vehicle salesmen, in an effort to showcase what’s on offer, plus the numerous additions and tech upgrades the whole Volvo range has incorporated.
Futuristic headlights were a big talking point, plus various grille options now available certainly divided opinion. But on the whole, visitors, salesmen and even technicians all agreed that these trucks would raise the bar throughout the truck world and will ultimately revolutionize the haulage game.

Thomas Hardie Used Trucks wasn’t immune, with necessary precautions being taken and elevated safety measure’s put in place to protect our staff and visitors.
