23 new eight-wheel Iveco Trakkers for Clancy Plant Hire

Fleet news logo

Clancy Plant Hire is to grow its fleet with a £1.5 million order for 23 new Euro 6 Iveco Trakker eight-wheel rigids.

The firm currently operates more than 60 Trakker 8x4s and provides all Clancy Group companies, including Clancy Docwra, with vehicles and plant for operation on major utilities and development contracts across the UK.

Before placing the order, a team from Clancy Plant Hire evaluated options from multiple manufacturers.

Bernie Stack, director of plant and transport, said: “Clancy Plant Hire has enjoyed a long history with Iveco.

“Our research showed us that moving away from Iveco would simply be making a change for change’s sake. The Trakkers offer us competitive whole life costs, strong residuals, and most importantly, they don’t give us any trouble.”

Each vehicle clocks-up around 40,000 miles a year and is in operation up to seven days a week, with some being double-shifted around-the-clock. Once the new trucks are in service, they will remain with the company for between five and six years and join a fleet of more than 1,400 commercial vehicles and 10,000 plant assets.

Bodybuilding slots have been scheduled with Thompsons, and every truck will be mounted with an HMF crane. They will also be fully Transport for London compliant, with a bespoke on-board camera and audible warning system for maximum safety.

Clancy Plant Hire operates its own authorised Iveco workshop, enabling the company to undertake its own servicing, maintenance and warranty work.

Deliveries from dealer Northern Commercials will commence in August 2015, with all vehicles scheduled to enter service before the end of the year.
