A new unique van body for Deane’s

Feb 08, 2017
Deane's Removals and Home Pack Container Storage of North Wales has recently taken delivery of a new vehicle, which proud owner Alastair Deane has described as truly unique.

Commenting on the new vehicle, which was on display at The Movers and Storers Show in November, Alastair said, “We needed to replace our twenty-year-old vehicle with one of similar size but with container capacity and a great deal of thought has gone into the design of this vehicle. I am very, very pleased with the final finish and build quality. My grateful thanks must go out to Jeremy Hulme of Guest Sherwood Trucks for sourcing the chassis along with Garry and Mike of Autotop for the superb job on the livery in such a short time. But most of all to the team at our bodybuilders UVB, Terry Sinnott, Mark, Geoff, Jacob and Shelia and Sue in the office, who have all contributed in making Jessica Deane a truly unique van body.”  

Jessica Deane - named after Alastair’s granddaughter - is a EuroCargo, four container canopy side loader. The base vehicle is an Iveco EuroCargo 14-tonne with a 220hp Euro 6 engine, a 4815 mm wheelbase and rear air suspension, a first for Deane’s. Above the manufacturer’s day cab is an ARZ sleeper pod with two bunks, night heater, fire extinguisher and hot and cold running water.   

Body features include: top canopies, side decks, safety bars and side lockers. City doors at the back are ideal for tight spaces and the well ramp lifts, and is pinned into the side boxes to make a level floor to carry the forth container.  The front is fitted with a fold-away Luton, a feature Deane’s has had fitted on all its vans.
