DAF throws in 12-month warranty for charity truck auction

DAF will provide a complimentary 12-month driveline warranty for the winning bidder at JJX Logistics’ charity auction of its XF.

The logistics firm will sell its XF 460 FTG 6x2 tractor unit, sporting orange paintwork and Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club livery, on 18 September in aid of breast cancer charity Legacy4Lucy.

The mid-lift Super Space Cab model is fitted with Bluetooth, satnav and a fridge/freezer and has a reserve bid of £15,600, which the company expects will be “exceeded significantly”. All funds raised above that figure will go to the charity and it expects the truck will go to a local operator with connections to the club.

The sale will be conducted online as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and replaces JXX’s usual annual charity event.

“This is such a unique opportunity for what we presume will be a local haulier, although a top football club like Wolves will have supporters throughout the UK,” said DAF’s marketing manager, Phil Moon.

“The truck certainly has aesthetic appeal, but with the added peace-of-mind of our 12-month, manufacturer-backed driveline warranty thrown-in. It makes for a seriously attractive business proposition. We are very pleased to be able, hopefully, to make even more money for the Legacy4Lucy charity.”
