Britannia Goodwins of Stafford increases its fleet size to seven.

In these financially challenging time it’s always encouraging to hear that a company is prepared to invest in its future and remind us all that it’s not all doom and gloom. 

That’s exactly what Britannia Goodwins of Stafford has done with the purchase of its second 7.5 ton vehicle to increase its fleet size to seven. The new vehicle is a Mercedes Benz that has been re-bodied by Unique Van Bodies of Warrington to accommodate three standard containers.

The Staffordshire and South Cheshire based family firm, established in 1935, operates a mixed size fleet of different pedigrees consisting four DAFs, a Renault, Vauxhall and the Mercedes; that range in size from 3.5 tons to 18 tons. The latest acquisition has been bought to be used for all types of domestic moves. When explaining his reason for adding to his fleet, Robert Goodwin said that: "I bought it because I thought the Mercedes was of better quality than other makes".
