MAN Orders Flood In From Leeds Commercial

Leeds Commercial Vehicle Hire, one of northern England’s largest independent vehicle rental companies, is adding an increasing number of MAN trucks to its growing fleet.

Latest deliveries include ten TGX 26.440 6x2 tractors, with another 20 on order. 10-off TGS 35.360 8x4s and two TGM 26.290 4x2 rigids with Palfinger cranes are currently in build, while ten Euro-4 TGL 7.5 tonne box-vans have also been taken in recent months.

With operating centres in Leeds, Bradford, Barnsley, Sherburn and Manchester, Leeds Commercial supplies rental vehicles across a wide range of industry sectors.

“A significant factor in our current preference for MAN is that there’s no AdBlue,” said company director, Chris Miller. “For our type of operation, we can well do without the hassle. MAN has a full range of trucks powered by EGR technology and that means hassle-free operation for us.

“Key also to the decision to go for MAN is the exemplary level of service we enjoy from our MAN Service Centre in Wakefield, Pelican Engineering. We’ve had a relationship with the dealer for many years, and we were delighted when it took the franchise to provide service and parts for MAN vehicles.

Leeds Commercial has over 50 years experience in all aspects of UK vehicle hire. From its bases across the north of England, the company specialises in spot hire, short-term rental, municipal and Local Authority contracts. Leeds commercial also performs its own service and maintenance at its own workshops and has its own small vehicle sales parc.
