Elliott’s upgrades to Isuzu

Canvey Island, Essex, UK: Elliott’s Upper Crust Catering Services has upgraded its fleet with 20 new Isuzu Grafter 3.5 tonners with Jiffy Banquet temperature-controlled bodies.

“Since we took delivery of our first Isuzu, we have been really pleased with them as they are proving to be extremely reliable in service, which as you can imagine is essential for our business. Not only that, our drivers find them really easy to drive plus they are a stylish, good-looking vehicle that creates a very positive impression with our customers,” said Laura Elliott at Elliott’s Upper Crust Catering Services.

Elliott’s plan to run the Grafters for four-years on five-day a week deliveries schedules. Each vehicle’s delivery operation varies ranging from multi-drop deliveries within an 18-mile radius up to a maximum of 100 miles from the company’s base in Canvey Island, Essex.

All the new vehicles are Grafter SWB N35.125 chassis, with a 1.9 litre diesel engine and a 6-speed gearbox.

The Isuzu Jiffy Banquet body was launched last year. “It is really pleasing to see a well-established family company, such as Elliott’s, joining the growing number of catering companies that are now using the Isuzu Jiffy Banquet as the ‘go to’ specification for workplace food and drink deliveries,” John Corcoran, fleet sales manager, Isuzu Truck UK, said.
