White & Company moves with MAN TGS drawbars 24 March 2015

National removal business White & Company has taken delivery of two top-spec Euro 6 MAN TGS 18.400 4x2 drawbar chassis in a deal worth £332,000.

The Botley, Southampton-based operator's group fleet manager Lynne Snow says MAN was selected because of the chassis' lower unladen weight than some of its competitors and the high specification available.

"We previously added MAN trucks to the fleet in 2011 and the drivers really liked them. They appreciate the space and comfort inside the cab," states Snow.

"We usually use Scania but needed something smaller than 18 tonnes but bigger than a 7.5 tonnes," she continues.

"This led to us trying out the 10-tonne trucks that MAN had to offer. We were pleased with the outcome and have since purchased a number of 10 tonners and 15 tonners."

The two new vehicles, however, are larger and have been specified with fully opening sides and a pod on the roof of the cab, providing more space for drivers.

Fitted with a drawbar chassis constructed by Wheelbase Engineering and bodied by Unique Van Bodies, the vehicles will safely load and transport whole households.

"The MAN team has been superb throughout the transaction, from initial enquiry and order to delivery and handover of the keys," states Snow.
