West Mercia responded immediately with one of their Directors from Coventry coming over to our Leicester depot to carry out a site survey. The advice we received was very professional and helpful. Following their quotation we viewed the truck at West Mercia’s depot at Coventry and placed an order for a used Daewoo-Doosan B15T electric counterbalance.

Also West Mercia had fitted the truck with a brand new battery complete with a 5 Year Warranty. The truck has proved a great addition to our fleet.
