Lancashire DAF has opened the doors to Lancashire Truck & Trailer – a dedicated ‘TRP shop’ facility in Bolton.
TRP is DAF Trucks’ trailer and all-makes parts offering, available across the company’s 130-strong dealer network, and at a growing number of dedicated TRP shop locations.
DAF says the new site is in response to an increasing demand from its customers, and the wider operating community, for fast access to a broad range of parts, competitively priced and on their doorstep.
Representing a £300,000 investment, the new 2,700 sq.ft facility will develop Lancashire DAF’s parts business.
“We’re making an already slick parts service even faster and even more efficient,” said Jonathan Francis, branch manager at Lancashire Truck & Trailer.
“Our new TRP Shop in Bolton brings us even closer to many new and existing customers. Indeed, we can offer Parts deliveries to within half-an-hour in the local area for stock items."
A number of other DAF Dealers already offer TRP Shop capability, and DAF Trucks’ part marketing manager Stewart Davies believes the DAF dealer map will continue to feature an increasing number of satellite TRP facilities.
“We’re seeing a shift in our parts marketing strategy,” he said, “With the support of our dealer network, we’re looking at many more strategically positioned locations where large premises are not required and from where we can deliver an ultra-responsive parts service to the maximum number of operators.”
