Iveco expands DriveAway line-up07 August 2017

Iveco has expanded the line-up of vehicles available through its DriveAway ready-bodied service, promising operators faster delivery times, lower costs and higher residuals.

Available truck body types now include boxes, curtains, dropsides, reefers, skiploaders, hookloaders, tippers, tipper grabs and sweepers – on vehicles plated at up to 32 tonnes.

As well as investing in a fleet of bodied vehicles which are available throughout the dealer network, Iveco has committed to keeping new chassis at key bodybuilding partners to enable fast replenishment.

DriveAway now incorporates vehicles for a range of operations including general haulage, temperature-controlled distribution, construction, demolition and waste, supplied by bodybuilders such as Abba, Boughton, Boweld, Brit-Tipp, Hiab, Hyva, JC Payne, Johnston, Kel-berg and Paneltex.

“With DriveAway, firms need only liaise with their local dealer, instead of co-ordinating separately with bodybuilders and ancillary equipment providers,” explains Stuart Webster, business director for Iveco UK and ROI.

“New vehicles can be purchased on one invoice and often driven away or delivered on the same day. Plus there’s a comprehensive two-year unlimited mileage warranty covering the body and chassis – and none of the hassles surrounding whole vehicle type approval.”

The range includes, for the first time, temperature-controlled trucks, with bodies by Paneltex and equipment from Carrier Transicold.

Other new additions are 18-tonne Eurocargo skiploaders, 32-tonne Trakker 8x4 chassis with hookloader bodies and a 16-tonne LHD Eurocargo roadsweeper with Johnston bodywork.
