Volvo FE ticks all the boxes for Nicklin Transit Packaging26 February 2020

Birmingham-based Nicklin Transit Packaging is reporting trouble-free service and positive driver feedback from five new Volvo FE 18-tonne rigids, which went into service last year.

Supplied by dealer Hartshorne Motor Services, the FE 4x2 rigids have D8K engines producing 247bhp and 950Nm of torque. They also have IShift gearboxes, Comfort Cabs and curtainside bodies by Fred Smith & Sons.

The new additions were supplied on a 60-month contract hire and will be serviced and maintained by the dealer’s Birmingham dealerpoint.

“The new Volvo trucks are based at our Wednesbury depot and usually work within a 50-mile radius,” says Dave Young, sales director at Nicklin Transit Packaging.

“Our delivery vehicles average around 80,000 miles per year and, to date, the new Volvos have performed reliably with no issues. Our drivers are also pleased with the FEs – they like the in-cab comfort levels,” he adds.
