‘Right truck, right price’: Combellack rates Volvo FM transporters

Cornwall-based Combellack Vehicle Recyclers has taken delivery of two 26-tonne Volvo FM car transporters – the first in the UK to be fitted with fully galvanised eight-car salvage bodywork, by Belle Trailers.

Supplied by dealer Stuarts Truck and Bus, both FM-420 6x2 rear-steer lift axle chassis are powered by D13K Euro VI engines rated at 415bhp and drive through I-Shift 12-speed automated transmissions.

Inside the Sleeper cabs, Combellack specified full leather trims, refrigerators and Volvo sat-nav/audio packages, along with heated and cooled drivers’ seats.

The twin-deck transporters’ specification also includes winches, solid decking and snatch blocks.

“The new Volvo FMs are definitely the right truck for our operations and came in at the right price,” says Darren Combellack, general manager at the family-owned business.

“Our drivers were involved in the specification process and they’ve been able to personalise the vehicles. The FMs are quiet and comfortable, with good pulling power for the many hills in Cornwall and Devon,” he adds.

“The drivers also love the cooled seats, and both vehicles are regularly returning around 9mpg.”

Both vehicles are supplied on a seven-year Volvo Gold repair & maintenance contract.
