MV Commercial helps Ellerslie T&C beat long lead-in time on DAF tipper grab

Glasgow-based utilities contractor Ellerslie T&C has avoided lengthy lead-in times by sourcing its new DAF CF 450 tipper grab direct from MV Commercials’ Ready to Go fleet, avoiding vehicle manufacturer waiting times of up to 12 months.

MV Commercial came to the aid of Ellerslie T&C when the firm was experiencing significant problems trying to quickly source a tipper grab to expand its utilities work.

The commercial vehicle specialist, which boasts a dedicated Ready to Go fleet of 300-plus units, was able to offer immediate delivery of the DAF truck to the exact specifications required by Ellerslie T&C.

Thomas McManus, Ellerslie T&C owner, said: “We were really impressed with how quickly MV Commercial turned around our order and delivered the LEZ and FORS Gold compliant truck.

He added: “MV’s extensive Ready to Go fleet offering made this possible. It’s of huge benefit to companies like ours who are seeking to quickly expand their fleet or replace vehicles.”

The DAF tipper grab, which is mounted with a Thompson tipper body and Palfinger Epsilon M125L grab crane, is the second vehicle from MV Commercial to join the company’s fleet, after it took delivery of an identical truck three years ago. Ellerslie T&C, which also runs utilities training courses, runs the tipper grabs alongside a fleet of three vans.

McManus said it is important the truck is compliant with Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in Scotland, allowing the business to operate in the heart of Glasgow and other local city centres.

The truck features cameras and sensors plus LED beacon bars to ensure the safety of its drivers, road users and pedestrians.

Commenting on MV Commercial’s service, McManus added “We used to outsource some of our work, which was costing a lot of money. Contracting trucks from MV has saved us a small fortune. Area sales manager Ronnie Stark and his team at MV offer exceptional customer service and we plan to strengthen our relationship in 2024.”
