New Scania for Leeds’ oldest removal firm

Jan 29, 2018
Leeds’ oldest removals company, Britannia Turnbulls, has invested more than £100,000 in a new Scania P250 truck as it looks to start its 16th decade in style.

Fay Chapman, Office Manager for Britannia Turnbulls said, “The chassis was supplied by Scania, and the body was fitted by UVB (Unique Van Bodies), with whom we have a long-standing relationship. We chose the P250 because it’s reliable, economical, Euro 6 standard – and we know our drivers like to be behind the wheel, because it’s great to drive. It has additional seats, to allow three porters to accompany the driver, and there’s a sleeper cab for two people if overnights are required – including a night heater to make it a more pleasant experience!”

Other benefits of the vehicle include ferry ties to the front and rear to enable removals to offshore islands, a tow bar and air ride suspension, meaning the vehicle can be lowered if necessary.

Turnbulls began trading in 1887 with a horse and cart and then steam powered vehicles, before the combustion engine had even been invented. The new Scania is the latest in over 200 trucks the company has owned, clocking-up a combined distance of more than 13 million miles.
