JJX Logistics, a transport company based in headquartered in Kingswinford, will auction off a DAF XF tractor unit on September 18 to raise money for the Legacy4Lucy breast cancer charity. The 6x2 XF 460 FTG sports a Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. livery on its Super Space Cab that serves as a tribute to Sir Jack Hayward, a former Wolverhampton club president. The interior of the truck features a twin bunk, Bluetooth and satellite navigation, and refrigerator/freezer combination. DAF will also cover the vehicle with a 12-month driveline warranty for added value. The auction will open with a reserve bid of £15,600.
“A Unique Opportunity”
“This is such a unique opportunity for what we presume will be a local haulier, although a top football club like Wolves will have supporters throughout the UK,” says DAF Marketing Manager Phil Moon. “The truck certainly has aesthetic appeal, but with the added peace of mind of our 12-month, manufacturer-backed driveline warranty thrown-in, it makes for a seriously attractive business proposition. We are very pleased to be able, hopefully, to make even more money for the Legacy4Lucy charity.”
