Factory bodied Dafs for window makers

Published to the CV Show website on

Blackpool-based window maker Affordable Windows has replaced most of its delivery fleet with 16 Daf LF45s complete with factory-built and fitted box van bodies.  John McVey, operations director felt that having the entire truck produced in one place would give a more consistent finish, cut lead times, simplify ordering and after-sales support.  He knows that "the same rigorous quality checking processes" used for chassis assembly at Leyland Trucks applies to bodybuilding and fitting.  "It all adds up to the consistency of quality and finish for the entire vehicle that we were seeking."  Each 4.65m wheelbase sleeper-cab LF45 has a 6.1m body to give a 36m3 load space.  Lancashire Daf did the business, with the trucks on a three-year operating lease and repair and maintenance contract through Paccar Financial.
