An order of 40 new MAN TGE vehicles is joining the fleet of hire company Wrights of Northampton.

The consignment of 10 chassis cab and 30 panel van models takes the total number of vehicles on the Wrights fleet to 145, including 100 MAN products.

The chassis cab vehicles – four of which are lower chassis cowl variants – have been converted with Luton bodies by JC Paine and Commercial Vehicle Bodies.

Wrights managing director Richard Sharpe said: “We’ve been operating MAN TGE vans across our fleet for some time now and have always found them to be solid, reliable and efficient vehicles. 

“These new vehicles, the Lutons, the low-height flat frame Lutons and the panel vans, will, like the other TGE’s we operate, be valued additions and we’re looking forward to having them on the fleet.

“The majority of our business is serving the self-drive and hire needs of customers in local towns and villages across the area. We offer a personalised booking service and can cater for any occasion, be it a customer moving home, therefore, needing the square space and volume of a Luton, or the simple collection of an oversized household product, such as a three-piece suite, a wardrobe or an oversized flat-screen television, where a standard panel van will do.”
