DAF Trucks will highlight its Ready-to-Go range of construction, refuse, and utility trucks at The Commercial Motor Show, a virtual exhibition that runs from 29 September through 1 October. There has been an increase in demand for trucks during the pandemic, and DAF has seen orders for Ready-to-Go vehicles rise along with it, including hook loaders, tipper trucks, mixers, and more.
The manufacturer also offers CF and LF trucks with Hyva skip loader bodies and Bevan scaffold bodywork. By working closely together with bodybuilders, DAF has been able to establish a programme that can cut delivery time “from months to weeks or even days,” according to the company.
Preparing For The Future
Many operators are also considering the Low Emissions Zones coming to London in March 2021, as well as Clean Air Zones that may be coming to other cities throughout the UK, when deciding to purchase DAF Ready-to-Go trucks because they come standard with Euro 6 engines. This allows businesses to essentially future-proof their vehicles while still having the exact bodywork they need for various applications.
“Ready-to-Go provides the ultimate rapid response service for operators,” says DAF Marketing Manager Phil Moon. “We understand the pressures that site contractors, for example, are under, and, that there is often a ‘standard’ vehicle specification that typically meets operators’ needs. What we can’t predict, however, is when they’ll need them—and that’s where our Ready-to-Go programme provides a genuine service. Available through our 134-point UK DAF Dealer network, operators can quickly access our Ready-to-Go portfolio, identify their ideal vehicle and then have it in service, often within days.”
