Thorncliffe Building Supplies adds three new DAFs

25th January 2022 | North West Trucks

One of the largest independent builder’s merchants in North Wales and the North West of England, Thorncliffe Building Supplies, has taken delivery of three new vehicles supplied by DAF dealer, North West Trucks.

The three-truck order included two DAF LF 18T Skip Loaders and one DAF CF 32T Hook Loader all fitted with Boughton bodies which will be used across the business offering waste management and skip hire services.

Tim Harper, Director at Thorncliffe Building Supplies, explained why Thorncliffe continue to purchase DAF trucks: “We run a mixed fleet of 80 trucks across our business, but the DAF product has the most driver appeal. Our drivers are very impressed with the AS-Tronic gearbox and the level of driver comfort when out on the road.”

Harper continues: “As a British company we believe it’s important to buy British and British made products. We specified our DAFs with Boughton equipment thanks to their long-standing heritage in the UK. North West Trucks availability meant they were able to supply us with the vehicles we needed without the long lead times which is great for our business. We buy from people and the customer service and back up assistance we have received from North West Trucks has been excellent.

Tony White, Truck Sales Executive at North West Trucks concluded: “We’re proud to continue our relationship with Thorncliffe Building Supplies and we wish them all the best with these latest additions to their fleet.”
