Logistics firm Currie Solutions has chosen Asset Alliance Group to supply 23 DAF XF 480 6x2 tractor units, after being impressed by the group’s sales and after sales support.

The new 44-tonne trucks replace existing vehicles in the 150-strong fleet and have been provided on a five-year contract hire deal.

Currie Solutions’ operations director, Allan Jamieson, said: “Historically, we’ve gone straight to the manufacturers when upgrading our fleet but, in our experience, that’s left us without a dedicated point of contact.

“With Asset Alliance Group we deal with one person, and we receive a truly personal service. It’s one of the best we’ve ever come across. They make the whole process simple and transparent, and everything is always explained in full.

“The team understood our exact needs from the start, and the support and guidance they have provided has been invaluable.”

The new vehicles will operate from the company’s sites in Coatbridge and Dumfries in Scotland, and Warrington and Ellistown in England, delivering goods throughout the UK and mainland Europe.

Jamieson added: “Another draw for us is the after-sales service. Our customer base is extensive, so these vehicles will be covering long distances. We need to ensure that wherever they are that we have easy access to repair and maintenance if anything was to happen. Asset Alliance Group’s extensive network of repair dealerships gives us peace of mind that we’ll always be looked after.”

The new vehicles come with Asset Alliance Group’s comprehensive full-service contract hire deal, including all safety inspections, maintenance, servicing and repairs, plus tyre cover and full roadside assistance.
