MILLION KILOMETRE VOLVO FH4 ECONOMY USED TRUCK DEBUTS THE INCLUSION OF A SIX MONTH MANUFACTURER’S DRIVELINE WARRANTY
The first million-kilometre Volvo Economy Used Version 4 FH tractor unit is being offered for sale after service with a national fleet customer. The ‘14’ plate FH 6x2 tractor unit is equipped with a Globetrotter cab and debuts a new, basic six-month driveline warranty. The FH has been subject to a full Volvo repair and maintenance contract since new and is offered for sale at Volvo’s Economy centre in Coventry.
Volvo has increased the driveline warranty cover for all Version 4 FH Economy used trucks to a six month unlimited mileage policy and now also includes Version 4 FL, FE and FM range derivatives introduced from 2013. Whilst being a little older or having had a little more use, a Volvo Economy truck has been identified from stock as being of good value. Customers choosing a Classic Volvo Economy truck will find it comes with a 30-day unlimited driveline warranty in addition to a safety inspection and safety defects rectified before delivery.
This means that buyers looking to purchase at this level have made a safe choice and will have avoided the risks of buying 'sold as seen' as many of these trucks have come from Volvo's own contract portfolio. Backed up by a comprehensive dealer network and delivered with complete documentation, Volvo Economy trucks are the perfect choice since they also come with a current MOT, legal tyres and are valeted before delivery.
Volvo Economy trucks currently operate from two locations, Coventry in the West Midlands and Washington, Tyne & Wear. Economy Sales Manager, Steve Worts is based in Coventry and has the responsibility for growing the Economy Brand across the UK and beyond.
The Economy trucks brand was created around five years ago and was developed to give Volvo Used Trucks a dedicated Sales Channel to display and sell trucks that were either over five years old or had a mileage of over 500,000 kilometres. These trucks have been identified as too good to trade and have a significant benefit in terms of pricing and value for the newly-qualified owner-driver or company owner who wants a truck to complement his existing fleet.
The Economy stock comes predominately from end of contract trucks or part exchanges generated from within the Volvo Network. These have in the main been fully maintained within the Volvo Network during their lives. Each of the two Economy locations hold around 50 to 75 Trucks which are almost all Volvo Brand and range from FE, FL, FM and FH derivatives.
