New Livery and New DAF XG+’s for Danny W Poole & Sons

New Livery and New DAF XG+’s for Danny W Poole & Sons

DWP, a Stoke on Trent-based haulier, has taken delivery of their first new-look DAF XG+ from Motus Commercials Stoke.

  • Danny W Poole (DWP) & Sons has sparked a fleet refresh with a New Generation DAF XG+ from Motus Commercials Stoke, in a striking new livery.

    DWP is an international food haulier which operates out of its site on Metro Business Park in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. They have a fleet of 25 trucks and 30 trailers and, although historically loyal to an alternative brand, DWP is now proudly 100% DAF.

    The DWP fleet runs on a 3-year replacement programme which is common for many fleet operators as a way of managing maintenance as they can finance a modern, reliable fleet benefitting from the manufacturers' warranty and R&M support.

    As a portion of their fleet nears 3-years of age Danny Poole, Director of Danny W Poole. & Sons, reached out to their local Motus Commercials DAF dealership.

    Danny explains, “We operate executive model DAF XF’s at the moment and they’re definitely more comfortable than our previous brand of trucks, so opting for DAF again was a no-brainer. Our drivers are away for up to 4 weeks at a time so the truck must have everything they need and that’s why this time around we opted for the biggest and best available again, the largest cab on the market - the DAF XG+.”

  • This DAF XG+ 480 FTP is the first of 11 tractor units to join the fleet and they all boast a wealthy specification with Xtra leather air seats, 2 x refrigerators, Dura-Bright wheels, air horns, light bars, and more.

    All 11 trucks will be supported by a DAF warranty and R&M package with all works again being carried out by Motus Commercials DAF – Stoke.

    Danny continues, “A real benefit of having a DAF fleet is the 24/7 service backup provided by our local Motus Commercials DAF dealership. They’re located just 5 minutes from our yard and it’s great to know that we can book our vehicles in for work on a day and time which suits our operation.

    “Overall, I think that DAFs are great value for money and the product is really good. We have a great relationship with the Motus Commercials team who look after us and offer valuable support to our operation. I’d like to also give credit to a salesperson, in particular, Andy Ridgway, who has done a great job and deserves the recognition.”
