NRS Waste Care Ltd
"Hi Lee, Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team! When the boss told me to look for a new 6x4 tractor with the right spec and tipping gear the one you had for sale was advertised but awaiting photos... I remember our first conversation and within seconds you had sent me some pictures from your personal mobile, a deal was done and whilst awaiting delivery of your new FH16 750 (to replace this one) you kept me up to date every couple of days with details of what was happening to our vehicle. On the Saturday Tony and myself came to collect the vehicle I remember saying it was like we were old buddies and I had known you for years. The vehicle was in the valeting bay and looked stunning! One of your team was more than helpful showing me all around the truck, in the cab and outside under the grille. The truck was as new and I would say to anyone in the market for a new or nearly new truck to speak to Lee at Hanbury Riverside. Thank you for the professional service with a very friendly attitude (even when I would ring you out of hours) nothing seemed too much trouble. Keep up the good work to all at Hanbury Riverside. A massive thanks from Mark and myself at NRS Wastecare."
Steve Frowen Transport Ltd
Steve Frowen is another new customer who has purchased a top of the range Volvo FH16 750 from Hanbury Riverside. Again this was owned by us from new and operated on our own fleet - we know the history of our trucks from their first day on the road. This is a very special vehicle, made even better with the extra items we arranged to be fitted prior to delivery. This includes Kelsa light bars, spotlamps, strobe lamps, CB preparation, STGO plate and air horns. All the work is carried out "in house" by our own technicians and a specialist electrician, which means the very highest quality standards throughout. The photo shows the truck completed and ready for delivery.
Alton Transport Service
We are pleased to supply Alton Transport Service with a 2013 Volvo FH4. They were recommended to come to us from an existing customer. This truck had been owned by us from new and was in immaculate condition inside and out. We arranged for a few extras to be fitted prior to delivery. The truck was then serviced up to date ready for collection by the customer. A few days later we arranged for a personalised registration to be transferred which has now been fitted. Here is what the customer said of their first Hanbury Riverside experience - "Thank you for your help and again thank you for the truck. It is a great piece of kit and we will be back for more shortly. Regards, Mick."

Ipswich Preparatory School
Now for something a bit different! We were contacted by the highly regarded Ipswich Preparatory School and asked if we could give them some help. Their Year 1 are looking at transport history as part of their topic work. They asked if it was possible to have a truck brought to the school to show the children a real life sized truck. We were delighted to be asked and Richard our member of staff spent a very enjoyable morning at the school showing the children one of our Daf trucks. We hope that this provided a very informative insight into the world of transport!
