Babcock is taking used DAF trucks to a new level with the recent launch of DAF Premium Select. Incorporated in Babcock’s used trucks division, DAF trucks are fully refurbished, certified, and given the DAF seal of approval before getting a second lease on life in the pre-owned truck market.
Only A-grade used DAF trucks make the cut after undergoing thorough mechanical and cosmetic inspections, full service history verification, and roadworthiness tests. To qualify as a DAF Premium Select vehicle, trucks have to be less than five years old and have no more than 650,000km on the clock.
Babcock has made it easier for customers to sell well-maintained trucks back to the company through competitive buy backs and trade-in deals on all makes of trucks. This enables owners to consistently upgrade and rotate their fleets whilst expanding operations.
Second economic line owners, as well as new customers (including start-up businesses) not only enjoy peace of mind, knowing they are purchasing a reliable, superior quality DAF truck, but also benefit from the affordable price tag, enabling smaller businesses access to these quality vehicles at a price that doesn’t burn a hole in their pockets.
DAF Premium Select customers have access to the same comprehensive aftermarket support from Babcock that comes standard with new DAF trucks. This includes tailor-made maintenance plans, 24-hour breakdown services and nationwide availability of workshops.
As part of the DAF Premium Select offering, Babcock also provides optional extras, such as financing solutions, 12-month warranties, and tracker systems. Any vehicle defects not related to operator error or lack of maintenance are covered by Babcock for up to six months.
Elliot Twani, sales manager – used trucks, heads up the DAF Premium Select portfolio. He says Babcock always has its customers’ best interests at heart, which is why the company’s used truck offering is all-inclusive. “For example, our finance solutions take away the stress of seeking out external funding, while our maintenance contracts, warranties, and aftermarket service mean we’re able to give customers fully inclusive support,” he elaborates.
