RENAULT RANGE T & JDS TRUCKS WIN OVER DAF-EXCLUSIVE “J” FREIGHT

"This is only the 2nd new truck I’ve purchased in 30 years; I normally buy 12-18 month old DAF trucks. I was so impressed by the sales people and the vehicle at the CV Show, as well as the excellent approach by the dealer, JDS Trucks, that I decided to give a new Renault Range T a try."

Rochdale-based “J” Freight Ltd, specialists in groupage and full load deliveries to and from Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the Offshore Islands, has taken delivery of its first ever Renault, a Euro 6 Range T. The new T460 6x2 tractor unit, supplied by JDS Trucks is an addition to “J” Freight’s DAF-exclusive fleet.  This is only the 2nd new vehicle purchased in 30 years and it was the performance of the Range T during trials, as well as satisfaction with the dealer that were the key factors in “J” Freight’s vehicle selection.

The new Range T is being used for general haulage, including the transportation of food, chemicals and building products, to and from the North West of England, Birmingham, Hull and North Wales to the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Commenting on the decision to bring the company’s first Euro 6 Renault Range T into its fleet, Managing Director, Steve Jackson said, “ This is only the 2nd new truck I’ve purchased in 30 years; I normally buy 12-18 month old DAF trucks. I was so impressed by the sales people and the vehicle at the CV Show, as well as the excellent approach by the dealer, JDS Trucks, that I decided to give a new Renault Range T a try.  We are all really impressed with both the service and the vehicle’s performance so far.”

Steve continued, “We have all the extras on the truck including fridge, air conditioning, Bluetooth, iPod as well as excellent storage facilities and a double bunk; the drivers absolutely love the Range T. The vehicle helps to present such a great image for “J” Freight and I’m so impressed that I’m looking to change the whole fleet across to Renault over time.”
