Strong Local Dealer Support Key to Isuzu Fleet Expansion at Thorncliffe Building Supplies

By the end of this year, Thorncliffe Building Supplies will have added 12 new Isuzu trucks to its 80-strong commercial vehicle fleet that operates out of three depot locations in North Wales.

Following the success of its first five Isuzu N75.190(E) 7.5 tonne tipper and skip vehicles supplied early this year, Thorncliffe Building Supplies has ordered a further seven new Isuzus, covering 3.5 tonne, 7.5 tonne and 13.5 tonne variants, all of which are being supplied by local Isuzu Truck dealer, Warrington Vehicle Centre (WVC).

“The decision to add new Isuzus to our fleet came about because of the need to replace several incumbent older vehicles, as well as adding some new vehicles to cope with the increasing demand from all our depots. We have had Isuzu trucks in our fleet on and off for many years, however for the GVW range from 3.5 tonne to 13.5 tonne, they are now our chosen marque, based on their proven reliability, impressive payload and most importantly, the effective local dealer support we receive from Isuzu,” said Tim Harper, director, Thorncliffe Building Supplies.

The latest order for seven Isuzus consists of two Isuzu Grafter N35.125 manual 3.5 tonne curtainsided rigids, four Isuzu N75.190 (E) skip loaders and one Isuzu F135.240 (E) 13.5 tonne tipper, with all the new additions being gradually introduced into the Thorncliffe Building Supplies fleet over the next few months.

Tim Harper continues, “For our intensive business operations, it’s so important that we have reliable and effective support from our local supplying truck dealer and in the case of Warrington Vehicle Centre, they are absolutely superb and really on the ball in terms of supporting the current Isuzu fleet at our three depots.”

“One of the key strengths of Isuzu Truck in the UK is the experience and knowledge of our long-established dealer network. This proven ongoing day-to-day support is vital for companies such as Thorncliffe Building Supplies and in their case the local dealer, Warrington Vehicle Centre, has consistently performed to the high standards expected of an Isuzu truck dealer.
