Car dealership Dick Lovett is relying on two new Volvo FL 4x2 rigids mounted with Belle Coachwork twin deck bodies to transport customers’ Aston Martin and Ferraris.

Aaron Allnutt, head of business at Dick Lovett, said: “I started my career as an apprentice technician at Volvo Trucks so I’m well aware of the product quality, reliability and performance its trucks deliver.

“When the time came to refresh our delivery trucks, Volvo was always high on our list and quickly proved to have the best overall package.”

The dealership said its drivers had reported that a previous transporter from a different manufacturer struggled to deliver consistent, reliable power, so Allnutt set out to design a specification to avoid these issues with the company’s new trucks – without compromising on payload.

The resulting effort sees the two 16-tonne FLs each equipped with a Euro-6 compliant engine, driven by an automated six-speed I-Sync transmission.

The FLs are also equipped with front and rear air suspension to not only aid driver comfort but to also ensure care is taken of the trucks’ luxury cargo.

The company expects the vehicles to each cover 100,000 km annually, working across the UK.
