We visited Stuarts Truck and Bus after it was named Dealer of the Year 2018 by Volvo Trucks UK, to find out how the business has managed to thrive for so long.

Director Ryan Stuart sees the business as the ‘total solution’ for customers, offering everything that Volvo supplies. He also likes to let people see what they’re buying. “People like to window shop” says Ryan, and making transactions tangible is an important part of the offer. So with short term focus shifting to their newly opened used truck centres in Devon and Cornwall, a stock of 10 vehicles is maintained at each site.
