Asset Alliance Group has upgraded John McNally Haulage’s fleet by replacing the majority of the company’s owned vehicles with new, high spec Mercedes-Benz trucks.
Finance specialist Asset Alliance has supplied the Lanarkshire-based haulier with eight Actros 510 6×2 GigaSpace tractors on a three-year full service contract hire agreement, while its sister company ATE Truck and Trailer Sales bought six of its used units.
John McNally, owner of John McNally Haulage, says: “Updating our fleet with Asset Alliance Group has been quick and simple, and really refreshing. They sourced and supplied the new trucks we wanted without any fuss and gave us a competitive price for our used vehicles.
“It’s been a seamless transition and has saved us a lot of time and money.”
John McNally Haulage will benefit from full repair and maintenance support, which includes all safety inspections, maintenance, servicing and repairs required in one monthly payment.
Asset Alliance Group has also organised driver training from Mercedes-Benz for John McNally Haulage staff to ensure the new Euro 6 tractor units are operated as efficiently as possible, reducing fuel consumption and minimising emissions.
McNally adds: “Reliability and uptime are major factors in our business contracts and we’re confident Asset Alliance Group understand our needs.
“The contract even includes providing a relief vehicle when one of our tractors is in the workshop, which is another huge bonus for a business like ours.”
The new tractor units will be used on John McNally Haulage’s main contract with P&O Ferrymasters, transporting general haulage items in and out of the ports of Hull, Immingham, Liverpool and Teesport, and for distributing goods all over the UK.
John McNally Haulage is a family-run business, based in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire. It has been in operation since 2005 and delivers throughout the UK.
Note to editors:
The Group occupies a unique position in the market, as it uses its own funds and significant buying power to supply multi-brand vehicles on any combination of contract hire, operating lease, finance lease or hire purchase. This flexibility, combined with a transparent and consultative approach, helps customers drive maximum efficiency from their fleets.
Asset Alliance Group also stands out for maintaining full control of residual risk through its retail arm ATE Truck and Trailer Sales, which protects customers from overly strict return conditions commonplace in the industry. Its modern workshop facilities also keep end-of-life costs to a minimum and provide the opportunity to refurbish vehicles in-house for an additional life in service.
The Group is headquartered in Wolverhampton and was founded in 2010 by Willie Paterson, former Director of Commercial Finance at Alliance & Leicester plc.
