One in each colour: two new vehicles for Masons

Dec 14, 2012
Masons Moving Group of South Wales has taken delivery of two new trucks to operate on its European trade: one in its own livery and one sporting the Bishop’s Move Group colours.


Masons has been an agent for Bishop's Move Group for 15 years prior to taking on a franchise arrangement twelve years ago. Gordon Mason, the company’s Managing Director, commented: “The franchise is a bolt-on to our normal services and as Bishop’s Move Cardiff it has given us access to corporate moving on a national and international basis. Our involvement with Bishop’s Move Group increased our turnover by 35% last year, and we have got to the stage this year whereby we are again running weekly scheduled vehicles into North West and Central Europe, with dedicated trained staff.”


The picture shows the two new DAF XF105.410s.  The Bishop’s Move European liveried road train will be dedicated to the movement of military personal to and from all areas of North West Europe. The Masons Worldwide liveried vehicle will work on the company’s French operation and the rest of Europe. The vehicles were provided by Watts Truck & Van at Cardiff and the vehicle bodies were supplied by Unique Van Bodies at Warrington.


 “I would like to thank Gary Clark at Watts Truck & Van for the way in which the order was controlled from start to finish,” said Gordon, “and Phil Butler for Lombard’s Financial input without which the purchase would not have been possible.”
