Dartford-based independent HGV rental company Truckfast Truckserve is being wound up after liquidators were appointed to the firm.

Incorporated six years ago, Truckfast specialised in contract hire, rental and leasing of heavy commercial vehicles.

Its fleet included 6x2 tractor units; 8x4 tippers; skip loaders; flatbeds and curtainsiders.

The last available set of accounts, for the year ending 31 August 2019, showed that the company possessed fixed assets of £746,500.

Following a virtual meeting of creditors on 28 September, a resolution was passed for the business to be wound up voluntarily and Philippa Smith at Smith & Barnes insolvency practitioners was appointed as liquidator.

Smith & Barnes did not respond as we went to press and Truckfast director David Allon did not return our calls.
