Hartshorne Group

Striving to offer great service to every customer is in the DNA at Hartshorne Group who have been helping to keep businesses  on the road for more than 50 years by supplying and servicing Volvo commercial vehicles.  Their diverse customer base includes some of the UK's best-known hauliers as well as owner-drivers of single vehicles.

Hartshone say they have “found that the needs of customers vary according to their size and the demands of their business. A customer with a national fleet that transports perishable goods will require us to operate seamlessly at scale, whereas an independent customer may value support in an unexpected crisis.”
The common priority, however, is vehicle uptime which is why they operate on a near 24-hour basis. Every customer has a direct point of contact, whether it's a sales account manager, dedicated service manager or one of our many customer service representatives.
