Blackburn based GAP have just taken delivery of 10 new bespoke built Ford Transit box vans which have been built by Trucks 2 Go and supplied on a long term rental basis by our sister company 2 Rent UK Ltd.
GAP is one of the countryís leading home improvement stockists, supplying both the domestic and commercial building market with maintenance free building products. They stock more than 3500 products from fascias and soffits, to gutters, window trims and silicones. GAP also stocks Home line, the most comprehensive range of roofline products available on the market together with a wide range of Home Improvement products such as Roof Windows and Decking. Their average warehouse size is 15,000 sq ft which means they can carry more products than any other Home Improvement Stockist. All of their warehouses have dedicated trade counters open to both the trade and the general public.
The vehicles have been built to operate between their large warehouses and their smaller depots to deliver stock locally from the smaller sites. The vehicles are all 3.5 tones so do not cause GAP the issues which arise from with larger 7.5 tone trucks which they have operated in previous years so that they do not have to worry about the tacho hourís restrictions and drivers qualifications. As GAP continues to grow they intend to operate one of the new style Ford Transits from each depot which may rise to 60 stores over the coming years.
Each of the vehicles is based upon a Ford Transit 350 with the 115 ps engine. They all arrive as the long wheelbase chassis from Ford and then have to be extended both in the chassis wheelbase and also at the rear. The vehicles are then fitted with a low height 18ft in length box body which is constructed from a new lightweight GRP to still give maximum payload whilst allowing them to carry longer products from their range.
We are pleased to continue supplying GAP who has been a customer of Trucks 2 Go since 2005 and hope to supply them for many years to come. Trucks 2 Go have over twenty years of experience within this particular industry and we pride ourselves on having dedicated staff that have the ability to handle all areas of the market.
