The new trucks, which join an existing fleet of 36 skip loaders and include two with Multilift bodywork and one with Boughton bodywork, will be used across the company’s hire division and for its wait-and-load services.
MV Commercial was able to provide the right spec trucks from its Ready to Go range of stock vehicles – which includes models designed to anticipate upcoming market trends and provide operators with quality equipment in rapid time.
Craig Williams, group operations director at The NWH Group, says: “Demand for skip hire grew significantly throughout the pandemic and has not slowed down. In order to respond to this, we made the decision to extend our skip loader fleet.
“We’d previously leased vehicles from MV Commercial, so we knew they provide a quality service. From our initial conversation to taking delivery of the liveried vehicles, took less than a month – considerably less than had we ordered a new chassis from a dealer and then waited to get it bodied.”
The 18-tonne rigids will operate five days a week out of the company’s Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle sites.
