Mercedes Actros ‘has it all’ for W&M Thompson16 August 2017

Lancashire-based transport firm W&M Thompson has taken delivery of a new Mercedes-Benz Actros from dealer Ciceley Commercials – 40 years after the family-run firm’s founders bought their first truck from the same dealer.

The latest addition is an Actros 2551 with GigaSpace cab, 510bhp 12.8-litre engine, and personalised registration plate. It joins the operator’s 20-strong fleet, most of which are Mercedes.

“We’ve stayed with Mercedes-Benz and Ciceley Commercials for two simple reasons,” says Paul Thompson. “The product has always been excellent and the service we receive from the dealer is first class.

“As a total package, the Actros has it all,” he adds.

“It’s competitively priced and offers great value for money thanks to its high level of standard specification, to which we add chrome grilles and lightbars to ensure that our vehicles really stand out.

“The Actros is also superbly reliable. We’ve been running vehicles from the latest generation for four years now and I don’t think I’ve spent anything on them.

“Many of our vehicles are travelling into London and making multiple drops on a daily basis. The Mercedes-Benz truck’s fuel economy is great, while our drivers rate it very highly, too.”

The Actros is supplied with a two-year R&M contract.
