Farrall’s Group expands fleet with MAN vans and trucks

Haulage and warehousing specialist Farrall’s Group has expanded its fleet with two new MAN TGE 3.5-tonne vans as well as two new MAN trucks, helping the company meet an increased demand for deliveries.

The vans will be used for Palletforce operations, helping with access to B2C deliveries and town centre locations

The group runs a 70-strong fleet and deployed its first MAN trucks three years ago.

The two new MAN TGE vans are both 140hp 3640mm wheelbase chassis cab variants. With the help of Truck Craft Bodies, they have been fitted out with 13-foot curtainsider bodies, and both feature flush-fitting column-mounted 60/40 tail lifts and an Aero Dome above the cab.

The vans will be used for Palletforce Operations delivering and collecting throughout the CH and LL postcodes, helping with access to B2C deliveries and town centre locations.

The TGEs come equipped with the MAN Media Van Business infotainment systems including satellite navigation, 8-inch TFT colour displays and touchscreens, and they have also been specified with air conditioning, cruise control and MAN TGE’s overhead storage system.

“When purchasing a MAN you know exactly what you’re getting, they are robust, efficient and reliable,” said Matthew Farrall, managing director Farrall’s Group and founder Eddie Farrall’s grandson. “With MAN you also get a partnership with the dealer network, in our case AN Richards of Froncysyllte, who totally understand our business, our needs and offer us a 360 degree level of wrap-around care.”

All MAN vehicles are supported by the manufacturer’s Nationwide Commercial Vehicle Dealer network, with many operating extended hours, including round-the-clock servicing and customer tailored solution maintenance.

The entire MAN range also benefits from 24-hour assistance service.
