EXPANSION: TCW invest in the future
Five recovery trucks worth £230,000 are the newest additions to TCW Group, as the vehicle repair network invest to build the infrastructure needed for their ambitious nationwide expansion.
Supplied by Paynes Garages, the Isuzu N75 190 chassis cabs come with one fully enclosed curtain-sided vehicle and four custom-built Roger Dyson twin deck TR3 TDLW transloaders.
The new trucks will be used group-wide to recover damaged vehicles, return repaired vehicles and transport replacement vehicles for TCW’s customers.
Adding to the repair network’s current fleet, these particular models were selected owing to their reputation for reliability and quality, coupled with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty for the chassis units and a 3,100kg payload capability.
