Valley Water Services has taken delivery of four 32-tonne DAF CF 450 tipper grabs from MV Commercials. The Caerphilly-based company is a water and utility solutions provider that operates in South Wales. The new tippers join a mixed fleet of 90 vehicles to replace ageing tippers that were becoming costly and time consuming to repair and maintain, resulting in frequent downtime.

Originally, Valley Water Services ordered three tippers but thanks to a speedy delivery, good build quality and service they ordered another DAF CF to complete the set. The vehicles are specified with safety equipment to meet the requirements of FORS gold accreditation. MV Commercial’s team at its Airdrie facility fitted the tippers with a slimline LED beacon bar, four LED strobe lights at the front and two at the rear, to improve safety for all persons operating in and around the vehicle.

Gareth Morris, business manager at Valley Water Services, said: “We’re delighted with the high-quality of the tippers from MV Commercial. They are doing a great job. These new additions have made our workforce much more efficient, with regular maintenance checks and any minor repairs taking just a few hours rather than two or three days. It means our drivers are working rather than waiting around. With minimal downtime, the tippers have allowed us to increase the volume of work we can undertake. MV immediately understood our business needs and advised us on the best grab vehicles for our operation. They were competitive on price and had ready-to-go stock, which was really impressive, meaning we felt the benefit of extremely swift vehicle delivery.”

David Patrick, sales director at MV Commercial, said: “The £20 million we have invested in our ever-expanding Ready to Go fleet is key to helping us meet the evolving demands of customers like Valley Water Services. We’re delighted to be in a position to support the company’s bespoke vehicle requirements, delivering the right trucks for their operation, quickly and efficiently.”
