Balgores Motors, an East Anglia-based accident repair group with locations all across Essex and Suffolk, recently added eight new Isuzu 7.5-tonne day cab trucks to its fleet. Balgores Motors plans to keep them in operation for three years as part of a fleet that transports more than 250 cars per week. Each of the Isuzu N75.190 trucks is configured as a car transporter with various Recovery World bodies, including low sliders, slide beds, and twin decks. According to Isuzu, the slide bed models are ideal for “small cars to large SUVs,” the low sliders are a fit for “high-performance cars with low ground clearance,” and the twin decks can haul two large cars at once, ranging from “small and large family cars to sports performance cars.”
Coming Back To Isuzu After Eight Years
“We have returned to specifying Isuzu as our main vehicle of choice as the intensive nature of our vehicle distribution programme is based on having reliable trucks with proven efficient after sales support. Without doubt, Isuzu ticks all these boxes,” says Chris Everitt, transport and logistics manager at Balgores Motors. “Flexibility of operation and vehicle reliability are our main priorities when transporting this number of cars every week and we believe that the combination of the Isuzu chassis with the Recovery World bodies provides us with the optimum choice of delivery vehicles.”
