Tom Moorhouse and Son takes delivery of 12 new DAFs09 September 2021

DAF dealership Motus Commercials Huddersfield has handed over 12 new DAF XF 530 FTG Super Space tractor units to Tom Moorhouse and Son Ltd.

Established in 1887, the general haulage and warehousing business based in Honley, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, is currently managed by the fourth and fifth generations of the Moorhouse family.

Josie Galloway, finance director at Tom Moorhouse and Son Ltd comments: “We’ve always had DAFs on the fleet, and as a family business we prefer to work with local partners and support other British businesses. We have worked with Motus Commercials Huddersfield for many years for both the supply and aftersales of our vehicles; its extended opening hours mean it is able to offer flexibility and reduce our downtime.”

For the operator, DAF Connect has been installed to allow Tom Moorhouse and Son Ltd to monitor their fleet’s performance including vehicle health, fuel reports, remote tacho download and ECO score card to promote more environmentally friendly driving behaviour. Not only that, to keep vulnerable road users safe, the 12 vehicles have been specified with forward facing camera, driver side blindspot camera, four-channel recorder and rear ultrasonic sensors, as part of the London Direct Vision Standard.
