Chassis Cab Invests in New Vans to Keep Truckers Moving 24/7

truck dealership Chassis Cab takes delivery of new breakdown vans to keep its customers moving 

Chassis Cab – the family-run DAF truck dealership with sites at Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Cambridge and Isleham – has added two new breakdown service vans to its fleet to keep its DAFAid roadside assistance service running smoothly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The company also has another three models on order with its long-term business partner Drive Vauxhall to make sure its fleet of back up vehicles keeps offering the optimal roadside service to truck owners throughout the of East of England.  This will bring Chassis Cab’s current fleet of Vauxhall breakdown service support and parts vans to 53.

Speaking on behalf of Chassis Cab, Dealer Principal Robert Baxter comments: ‘We have been purchasing support vehicles from Drive Vauxhall for over 15 years now and have recently added new models that have put our fleet at over 50 vehicles.  The vans are highly-performing in that they are efficient, versatile and clean, much like the trucks they are helping to keep in service.  In these times of rigorous vehicle emissions legislation, all vehicles on the road need to be both green and clean.

Drive Vauxhall and Chassis Cab have established a relationship where we work together simply and effectively to provide a polished service to truck drivers, who need quick and reliable support when they are on the road.’

Adds New and Used Vehicle Group Manager from Drive Vauxhall, Marcus Popham: ‘We have a long history of working with Chassis Cab, and an association that goes back to the time when the business was run by the much-respected founder David Ruffles.  It is a pleasure to still be supplying commercial vehicles on a regular basis to the team which is now overseen by David’s daughter Sally Ruffles.  This is a true family business that understands the basic need to keep its customers moving – maximising uptime - and that’s exactly what they do with the premium DAFAid roadside assistance service.  We are proud to be working with Chassis Cab as it expands and develops across East Anglia.’

DAFAid vans are supplied by Drive Vauxhall and then fitted out with the latest industry-leading technology and tooling to facilitate pioneering roadside assistance and recovery.  Leading ‘link and chase’ technology keeps all parties informed of progress and 80% of trucks are repaired at the roadside.  Models on the Chassis Cab roadside service and parts fleet include New Vivaro, Movano, Combo and the New Corsavan.

Chassis Cab is a family owned business that has been the main DAF dealer for Suffolk since the early 1990s and DAF Service Dealer for Cambridgeshire since 2006.  Starting out as a commercial vehicle accident repair centre, Chassis Cab has grown to become one of the premier dealers for DAF and a leading supplier of trucks in the region, now with main sites at Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Cambridge. 

Based at Addison Way in Great Blakenham, Northern Way in Bury St Edmunds Isleham in Cambridgeshire and most recently at Newmarket Road, Cambridge, Chassis Cab now employs 158 members of staff between its four separate locations.
