Guest Truck and Van’s West Bromwich branch has delivered seven new Iveco vehicles to global engineering company ThyssenKrupp.

The order includes four 17-tonne Eurocargo dropsides and three 26-tonne Stralis curtainsiders, one of which has a coil carrier able to carry a 16-tonne payload. They include bodies by West Bromwich-based Fred Smith & Sons Motor Bodies as well as three-year R&M packages with the dealer.

Last year ThyssenKrupp purchased five trucks from Guest Truck and Van. Group retail truck sales manager at the dealer, James Taylor said: “Both the drop-sided and curtain-sided trucks are ideal for speedy loading and unloading, and the curtainsider is especially useful for partial deliveries as there is no need for first on, last off loading.

“The coil carrier, meanwhile, is a specialist product that can carry up to a 16-tonne coil, with a body that can slide up and down, making manoeuvring easier. It’s nice to know that ThyssenKrupp are happy with the service and products that they received last year and that they have chosen to purchase with us again.”
