Used DAF Trucks offer '15% fuel savings'

Fleet news logo

Buying a DAF Used Truck can deliver a 15% saving on fuel – and possibly even more, according to the company.

The first ultra-efficient used trucks from the latest generation of DAF vehicles now available at DAF dealers and the four DAF Used Truck Centres.

DAF Trucks’ used vehicle deals come complete with factory warranty, the latest on-board innovations and a maximum of 400,000 kilometres on the clock.

Marty van den Dungen, sales director of used trucks at DAF, said: “Experience has shown that many nearly-new truck buyers from the 2017 range previously drove a Euro 5 truck.

“They are able to achieve savings on fuel of up to 15% quite easily, not to mention the Maut benefits attached to driving a Euro 6 truck and the special area exemptions for certain cities, industrial areas and ports.”

Every used truck from the newest Euro 6 generation is given the label of ‘DAF First Choice Truck’ at the DAF dealer.

DAF First Choice Trucks are subjected to a 200-point check and are in technical condition, which is suggested to help provide maximum reliability and optimal uptime.

DAF First Choice Trucks up to four-years-old come with a 12-month full factory warranty that also covers all factory options.

Van den Dungen added: “Not forgetting service intervals of 200,000 kilometres, up to 250 kilograms extra payload and the amazing comfort of the newest generation of trucks,”

“They are quieter than ever before, change gears almost imperceptibly and are fitted as standard with a fantastic new air-conditioning system.

“The ease of use of the cruise control and EcoRoll is out of this world.”

Carlos Liste, owner of Maquisaba Logistics in Santa Comba, Spain, said: “Investing in a fleet of used DAF Euro 6 vehicles is worth every eurocent.

“They are incredibly reliable, and we are achieving savings in our daily operations of up to 15% on fuel costs compared with the Euro 5 trucks.

“Thanks in part to the higher payload and the longer service intervals, the newest generation of Euro 6 trucks has raised the efficiency of my fleet to a much higher level.

“My drivers are very impressed by the excellent comfort and driving characteristics. They really love their new trucks.”

Last year, Laurence Drake was appointed as managing director of Daf Trucks, succeeding Robin Easton.

Ryder recently supplied 162 new DAF vehicles to international textile, hygiene and facilities services company Elis.
