Another ten trucks for satisfied Isuzu customer

Isuzu Forward tow truck

Three years after acquiring its first Isuzu recovery truck, Nationwide Crash Repair Centres (NCRC) now has 67 Isuzus in its current fleet, having just put in an order for ten new Forward N75.190 rigids.

These trucks have been specified with a mix of flatbed tilt and slide and twin deck Dyson recovery bodies. They have gone into service alongside the other 57 Isuzu trucks that are operating within NCCRC’s 115-strong fleet.

The rapid expansion of Isuzus within the company means that Isuzu trucks now account for over 60% of NCRC’s commercial vehicle fleet.

Gerald Barham, Health and Safety Business Partner at NCRC, comments: “When we first tendered for new 7.5 tonne vehicles back in 2015 we needed a truck that gave us maximum payload at that GVW as well as being supported by a proven experienced national service backup.

“Since making the decision to switch to Isuzu, we have had no real issues with them at all, to be honest, and the customer support that we have received from Isuzu and their dealers is absolutely excellent.”

The trucks have been supplied by Isuzu dealer Aquila Truck Services and are supported by a five-year repair and maintenance contract. Each new vehicle will cover around 50,000 miles per annum, operating within 50 miles of its allocated repair centre.
