USED VOLVO TRUCKS ‘SUIT’ CD & A LTD.
Dartford based road haulage contractors, CD & A Ltd was founded six years ago and the business has expanded with the exclusive purchase of Used Volvo Trucks. Company founder and Managing Director, Claudiu Dobrik, loves the Volvo Product and followed up his first purchase of seven Used Classic FH tractor units, supplied by Phil Wheeler Sales Executive at the Volvo Used Truck Centre in Enfield, with another five FHs in the same specification.
Claudiu’s dedication to Volvo also extended to his travel arrangements when making the journey to Volvo Trucks’ 50th Anniversary Dinner at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) last April. “There was only one way to travel to Birmingham and that was at the wheel one of my Used Volvo FH Tractor units dressed in my business suit,” Claudiu reports.
CD & A Ltd.’s preferred Volvo Classic FH tractor unit specification includes a 6x2 pusher axle chassis and either Globetrotter or Globetrotter XL cabs. “At present the D13K engine with a 460hp output suits our operation well, as does Volvo’s I-Shift automated manual transmission system. Generally speaking, my opinion of Volvo is that it’s a strong brand name, arguably the best, and the powertrains on our Classic FHs are extremely robust,” Claudiu adds.
CD & A Ltd source it’s Used Volvo trucks with either a six or 12-month warranty and the fleet predominately works in temperature controlled distribution across Essex and Kent for a major retailer. “Our drivers also have a high opinion of Volvo Trucks. We double shift every truck and the I-Shift gearbox is ideal for anyone who is unfamiliar with a Volvo. We always buy genuine Volvo parts. There are cheaper parts around, but with Volvo the quality and performance levels are top quality. Just like the trucks, Volvo parts will always last the course,” notes Claudiu.
