B&Q changes delivery specification

Published:  04 May, 2010

LONDON: B&Q is using 10-tonne trucks for home deliveries replacing its usual home delivery option of light vans (3.5 tonnes) or 18-tonners.

James Prest, home delivery regional contract manager for B&Q, said: "The smaller 10-tonne chassis still provides us with an excellent payload.

"It's a much smaller, more manoeuvrable, less obtrusive truck, and that's good news for other road users and for neighbourhoods where large 18 tonners are cumbersome and undesirable."

The new MAN trucks have a black livery matching the company's new staff uniform.
