Paul Salmon International

Paul Salmon is a local customer of ours who purchases Volvo trucks from us for his fleet. He recently had a requirement to replace an older Euro 5 truck with a more up to date Euro 6. We were able to supply the perfect, low mileage, vehicle from our stock. Paul always has his vehicles specified to a particular standard and this latest one reflects that standard. We arranged to supply and fit a Kelsa Top Bar and Lo Bar, Extra spotlights, Wheel trims and livery. The final job is to transfer a personal registraion. It looks great.

Fairhurst Stone Merchants Ltd

Fairhurst Stone Merchants have purchased a very rare Volvo FH16 750 6x4 Double Drive tractor unit from us. This truck is plated at 80 Tonnes and we are sure it will earn its keep working hauling stone in Cumbria. Originally the truck operated on our own fleet with one driver before being made available for sale. Prior to delivery we added a Kelsa light bar to make a very special truck extra special. It looks fantastic and one of our favourites!

We are very pleased to supply new customer NVMS Transport, from London, with a Volvo FH 500 Globetrotter XL tractor unit. This is the latest Euro 6 emission standard engine, which is very quickly becoming an essential requirement for inner city deliveries. This vehicle was supplied from our own fleet, coming off fleet to being collected by the customer in one week. An excellent example of what we can do.

Andy Mc Gowan purchased a Volvo FH 500 at the end of last year. It was fitted with several extras by us prior to delivery including a Kelsa Bar with extra lights and air horns, front grille chrome steps and a microwave oven. Andy kindly sent the following comments -

"I have bought many trucks over the past 25 years and never has it been so easy or exciting until I called Lee. I had been loyal to a previous company for all those years until last year when I refused to buy any more due to their lack of care, understanding or enthusiasm. At a loose end, a friend recommended Lee at Hanbury Riverside. My first call to Lee put my faith back into truck sales. With that first call to Lee I bought a truck without even seeing it, trusting his reputation. We had a deal and specced up the truck together to quite a high standard. I put my requests forward and arranged a delivery date, leaving the rest to Hanbury Riverside. Many thanks to the whole team who did exactly what they promised and on time. Brilliant! Thanks again, Andy"

We are delighted to supply the world famous Wilkin and Son "Tiptree Jam" company with their latest truck. This is a Volvo FH 500 Globetrotter XL Euro 6 tractor unit. We arranged for the cab to be painted in their very smart corporate green colour, livery to be fitted and a personalised "EA14 JAM" registration to be transferred. It looks very impressive. We are proud that they have chosen Hanbury Riverside to supply this vehicle.

Si Harwood is a new customer of ours from Norfolk. He was looking for an immaculate condition late Euro 6 Volvo tractor unit and we were able to supply the perfect vehicle from our stock. It has been personlised with extra white paintwork colour coding, Kelsa Lo-Bar, Wheel trims painted in black, Super single front tyres, Extra marker lamps, Chrome grille steps and Chrome effect VOLVO lettering on the front lower windscreen panel. It all looks like a very classic Volvo and the customer was delighted when he collected it from our premises in West Thurrock.
