Ellerslie T&C commends MV Commercial for promptly delivering a new DAF CF 450 tipper grab directly from its Ready to Go fleet. This swift solution helped the utilities contractor bypass lengthy lead times that other suppliers were quoting for the truck.

Facing challenges in swiftly acquiring a tipper grab to expand its utilities work, Ellerslie T&C turned to MV Commercial, as many other manufacturers were indicating lead times of up to 12 months. Leveraging its dedicated Ready to Go fleet of over 300 units, MV Commercial provided immediate delivery of the DAF truck precisely tailored to Ellerslie T&C's specifications.

Thomas McManus, Owner of Ellerslie T&C, expresses satisfaction, stating, "We were highly impressed with MV Commercial's quick turnaround of our order and the delivery of the LEZ and FORS Gold compliant truck. MV’s extensive Ready to Go fleet offering played a crucial role, benefiting companies like ours aiming to rapidly expand their fleet or replace vehicles."

The DAF tipper grab, equipped with a Thompson tipper body and Palfinger Epsilon M125L grab crane, marks the second addition from MV Commercial to Ellerslie T&C's fleet, following a similar truck delivered three years ago. Operating alongside a fleet of three vans, the company, which also conducts utilities training courses, emphasizes the importance of compliance with Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in Scotland, allowing operations in central Glasgow and other city centers.

Ensuring safety, the truck features cameras, sensors, and LED beacon bars. McManus underscores the significance of MV Commercial’s service, noting the substantial cost savings compared to outsourcing work. He applauds Area Sales Manager Ronnie Stark and the MV team for exceptional customer service, expressing plans to strengthen their relationship in 2024.
