“We have recently purchased two Volvo 480 Tractor Units from Lee and colleagues at Hanbury Riverside, without seeing them, with the request that additional items be fitted and the vehicle painted and signwritten in our colours.

When the first vehicle arrived we were more than pleased with the attention to detail given by Lee and his staff. Nothing has been too much trouble for them, even changing our number plate to a personalised registration.

We are very proud of our additions to the fleet, have no hesitation in recommending Hanbury Riverside, and look forward to the trucks proving to be as efficient as the service received from Lee and his colleagues.”

Dear Lee

I would just like to thank you and your team at Hanbury Riverside regarding the purchase of the Volvo Globetrotter XL 480. After making the decision to trade in our 6 and 8 wheel trucks for one artic unit we started to look for the right 12-18 month old unit. After going to Ipswich on the way back to Sussex and after seeing your advert in the Commercial Motor we phoned you and called in to Riverside. After a few hours, a test drive, some helpful advice from you, a few cups of coffee, we agreed on the purchase of the 480. It was agreed tipping unit to be fitted, truck to be serviced and ready for collection in ten days. To your word we collected in ten days, had a very useful hour with David regarding the digital tacho and a run over the truck and then back to Sussex. The first job was up to York to collect our double decker cattle trailer, ( I thought it only right I had the first run to see if it lived up to expectations.) down to Chippenham with overnight stay to check out the bunk, and home to Sussex with 50 cattle the next morning. I must say it certainly lived up to expectations and more, a real pleasure to drive.

Many thanks again for all your help and advice and I will not hesitate in recommending you to others and look forward to doing business again in the future.

Regards

Michael Sturmer.

P.S. I enclose a couple of pictures of the unit and trailer which looks very impressive.

"We normally do not buy used trucks, we usually buy new ones and we buy two at a time. But with such a long wait time we thought we would give Lee a ring to get things moving straight away.

Lee had two one year old Volvo FH 480’s, in manual with over 100,000 kms on the clock. I wanted tipping gear fitted and it was arranged with no trouble. He asked me up to have a look, but I didn’t want to drive the 480 miles to London and back when all I had to do was look at the “What our customers say” page and to see the truck on the website. Lee said “give me three to four weeks” and he was true to his word.

We collected the first one in three weeks and the second one in four. When we collected the lorries they were like new, all credit to Lee and his staff to which we are most grateful.

I had previously done business with Glyn Davies as far back as 1976 when he visited us here in Devon just after he had started. The company has grown to an unbelievable size but you still get the same family feel as it had thirty years ago"

"I saw the ad in the Commercial Motor and was passing Thurrock so I called in. I liked the fact that the vehicle was very clean and tidy and there had only been one previous owner. Lee was there with lots of assistance and advice which made the process much easier. To top it all off the custom fuel tanks and paint job were top notch"
