Haulier goes to Volvo for quick supply of used tractors29 September 2020

Croydon-based MAH UK Transport has expanded its fleet with the purchase of five Volvo FH 6x2 tractor units from Volvo Used Trucks

They take the total number of FHs supplied by Enfield-based Volvo used trucks sales executive Phil Wheeler to 11.

The new additions will be in operation six days a week, hauling box trailers from Croydon to Birmingham, covering up to 180,000km a year, as part of the company’s contract with a leading haulier. Owner Michael Harry says: “We have been in a fortunate position where work has increased, and we have had a surge in demand. As soon as there was a need to grow the fleet, I turned straight to Volvo Used Trucks and they were able to help me secure the additional tractor units I needed quickly.”

He adds that the dealer can explain the history of each vehicle, and as the majority are returning ex-contract hire vehicles, they have always been maintained by Volvo.

Each new addition to the fleet is less than four years old and features a Globetrotter cab. Power is provided by Volvo’s proven D13K engine producing 500 hp, driven through an I-Shift automated gearbox. These latest vehicles are backed by a Volvo Blue Contract which ensures all preventative maintenance is taken care of by technicians using Volvo parts at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre London – Croydon.

“Having driven Volvos myself and from the feedback I get from my drivers, I wouldn’t switch to any other manufacturer,” says Michael. “My plan is to extend the fleet to 30 vehicles.”
