The first new model Volvo FM car transporters have gone into service with Bolton-based J&P Vehicle Deliveries.
The FM 500 rigids, which were supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials, feature low roof sleeper cabs and are equipped with Transporter Engineering Odyssey bodywork and drawbar trailers. Specification includes leather seats, a nine-camera safety system, and Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels.
Paul Molyneux, MD of J&P Vehicle Deliveries, says: “We held back on placing the order to ensure we’d get the new FM, and it hasn’t disappointed. These are the best trucks we have ever had; Volvo has raised the bar dramatically and we couldn’t be happier with our choice.”
They are supplied on hire purchase through Volvo Financial Services, and are backed with five-year Volvo Gold Contracts. All routine service work is handled by Thomas Hardie Commercials’ dealership in Trafford Park, which now also carries out pre-inspection maintenance on the customer’s trailers under contract.
