Both the new Tip-Up and Pick-Up ranges are available for 3,000kg and 3,200 kg GVW versions of the Transporter.

Available for both the T30 and T32 (3,000 kg and 3,200 kg GVW) versions of Transporter, the new tipper body is known as the ‘Tip-Up’ and joins the tippers for the VW Crafter, providing a new option for urban fleets, offering payloads of around 800 kg (for T30) and 1,000 kg (for T32).

Ingimex can also offer dropside bodies for the T6, referred to as its ‘Pick-Up’ range, which offers payloads of around 1,000 kg and 1,200 kg. The Transporter chassis is also available with a 4MOTION all-wheel drivetrain which can be supplied to the Pick-Up and Tip-Up body, opening up its utilisiation.

Nick Axtell, specialist sales manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, commented: “This is a fantastic development in what is a progressive and growing market for small tippers, and the award-winning Transporter. Working with Ingimex has allowed us to complement our Engineered For You and Engineered To Go range. We are yet again creating a tailored service to help improve and progress our customers’ businesses as part of our Working With You promise.”
