FTH Hire Group has commended MV Commercial’s bespoke livery service and quick vehicle turnaround times, after taking delivery of a refurbished DAF LF 230 and four new DAF CF 480 rigid trucks, all mounted with beavertail plant bodies.

Delivering the vehicles in less than two months, MV Commercial used its in-house expertise to ensure the specification of the trucks matched FTH Hire’s requirements, alongside providing a customised livery finish for the business.

James Carr, Transport Manager at FTH Hire Group, says: “We are very impressed with the support we’ve received from the MV Commercial team, from the quality of the vehicles and their timely build turnaround, through to the professional livery service – they have really helped us to accelerate our fleet upgrade programme.”

Joining similar beavertail plant bodies, the new arrivals will be based at the company’s depots in Airdrie, Basingstoke, Farnham, Guildford and Southampton. FTH Hire Group also operates sites in Chelmsford, Farnborough, Horsham, Maidstone and Reading.

The new 8×2 32-tonne DAF trucks will be used to deliver a wide range of plant and equipment, including excavators, telehandlers, forklifts and dumpers, to local contractors.

“The new trucks offer excellent payload capacity and really look the part; they’re ideally suited for transporting our full range of available plant and equipment,” Carr says.

“We work them hard on multi-drop journeys, doing four or five runs every day from our depots to various customer construction sites, so it’s crucially important they are reliable. MV Commercial listened to our needs and the team have gone the extra mile to ensure we got the exact vehicles we required.”
