Millers of Longton Ltd’s First New Recovery Truck is Volvo FH16-750

Lancashire-based Millers of Longton Ltd have taken delivery of a Volvo FH16-750 6×4 rigid. Supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials, Preston, it is the company’s first-ever brand new recovery vehicle and is equipped with a 40-tonne rotator fitted by Boniface Engineering of Thetford, Norfolk.

“Ultimately, I guess our business is about being relied upon when something’s gone wrong,” says Millers of Longton Ltd., Director Jack Miller. “Our customers are relying on us, often in difficult circumstances, so we need the ultimate in dependability from our vehicles. For me that means Volvo.”

The company has carried out recovery services for Thomas Hardie Commercials over the past ten years, often using its Volvo FH12, which it purchased four years ago. “The FH12 is now 11-years old, but it has proved to be such a dependable workhorse,” says Jack. “Based on this experience and our relationship with Volvo it was really a ‘fait accompli’ that for our first-ever brand new truck we’d turn to Volvo.”

Millers Picks Volvo FH16-750

Since taking delivery, Jack Miller has been full of nothing, but praise for the FH16-750. “This really is a fantastic truck,” he says. “Everything about it is lovely. It’s a good truck to be in, a good truck to drive and I would say the 750 is ‘top of the game’ in terms of horsepower. In fact, ‘it does everything it says on the tin’.”

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
