Fallowfield moves up to new Isuzu 13.5 tonne twin deck car transporter 29 September 2021
The rapidly-changing weight structure of new cars being bought in the UK during the most recent post COVID period, driven primarily by the increasing number of much heavier electric and hybrid cars now being sold, has led Fallowfield Vehicle Deliveries to specify a brand-new Isuzu 13.5 tonne twin deck car transporter within its seven-strong vehicle delivery fleet.
The latest addition to the Fallowfield fleet is an Isuzu F135.240 (E) rigid fitted with rear air suspension and supplied by local Isuzu dealer Warrington Vehicle Centre (WVC). As well as the chassis, WVC also arranged the Recovery World galvanised twin deck car transporter body specification and fitment, in conjunction with Fallowfield, which estimates that the Isuzu 13.5 tonne car transporter will be in the fleet for a minimum of eight years, covering approximately 60,000 miles per annum.
“In many cases, it makes more sense for us to deliver two cars at a time, but our existing twin deck Isuzu transporter, at 7.5 tonne GVW, cannot handle the increased weight of the latest EV’s that are at least 20% heavier at up to one tonne each. Having successfully operated our 7.5 tonne Isuzu twin deck for almost eight years now, with little or no performance issues, we decided to move up the weight range with Isuzu for our latest fleet acquisition,” said Steve Davies, director, Fallowfield Vehicle Deliveries. “We have always been conscious about the progressively increasing weight of new cars, especially the latest prestige electric and hybrid models, so it made sense for us to continue our journey with Isuzu.”
Davies continues: “With our delivery vehicles, it’s all about the payload, the reliability, the vehicle’s overall size and legal compliance.”
