Allen’s Freight, Warrnambool

There is literally no job too difficult for Victorian-based, Allen’s Freight, especially when Isuzu’s heavy-hitting Giga prime mover, is on the job.

With daily double shifts the norm, the top dog of the Allen’s fleet has clocked-up a staggering 1.2 million kilometres and is still going strong!

With return on investment figures like that, the Isuzu Giga has well and truly paid for itself and some.

Trolley’s Transport Jason from Trolley’s Transport is very clear about his love for his trusty NLR 200.

Despite a short eight-month association, he’s already named his truck ‘Stumpy,’ an ex-Tradepack which Jason has converted into a pantech.

His constant return trips from Mackay to Brisbane might seem tedious to some, but to Jason, every drive is as enjoyable as the next in his favourite truck!

All Access Haulage

It’s as sleek as it is sturdy and definitely punches above its weight. Which is why, when it comes to ensuring time-sensitive deliveries, the transport experts at All Access Haulage in Sydney’s west, swear by their vehicle of choice, an Isuzu FYJ 2000.

Not only does it tick all the boxes on an operational front, it looks the part too with the unique design of the Isuzu genuine bullbar making it a real standout and the envy of every truckie in the west!

Plumbing & Plant Pty LtdAccording to the team at Plumbing & Plant Pty Ltd, there is no beating the convenience and reliability of their NLR 45-150 Servicepack from Isuzu’s Ready-to-Work range.

With a 1,500 kg payload capability, and a super agile short wheelbase, the NLR Servicepack can duck in and out of city laneways with a truckload of gear on its back. It was the perfect solution for owner George, who couldn’t be happier with the ‘all in one’ package.

LTK LandscapingMeet ‘Tippy’ the name bestowed on this tough little NLR Tipper – by the lads at LTK Landscaping.

For business owner Luke, the robust nature and solid build of the truck makes it a personal favourite with him. With custom livery and matching plates, it looks the goods too.

According to Luke, buying this truck was, “was the best decision ever”. We think that pretty much sums it up!

Bruce RussellAs the saying goes, ‘there’s no place like home’ and if you ask Bruce Russel, the proud owner of this converted NPR 350, he will certainly agree as he continues to travel across the country in his rolling home.

Kitted-out with all the mod-cons he needs to keep connected, Russel’s got the road-trips covered.

Royal BrinkmanAccording to Matt Graham from Royal Brinkman in Victoria, his Isuzu FVD is not just a great drive but also his best mate and with good reason too. The FVD is what he relies on every day to get the job done and delivered on time.

The vehicle looks the part too, with a sleek and stylish design that turns plenty of heads on the road. “No job is too big or hard for her,” said Matt.

Pete’s Paving“I should have bought one years ago…”

If that’s not a glowing testimonial for this NLR Tradepack Premium, then we don’t know what is. These are the words of Pete Johnson, owner of Perth-based Pete’s Paving.

Pete got a hold of the truck about a year ago and it’s taken his business to the next level.

“It carries everything I need yet drives and has more comfort than a lot of cars.”

Border Crane Consultants Pty LtdFrom specialising in sales, installation, scheduled maintenance to third party annual inspections, Australian Standard certification and more, Border Crane Consultants has every base covered.

As Melissa Barry puts it, “…our Isuzu FSD 140/260 is more than just transport, it’s our mobile workshop.”

Advanced technology coupled with the reliability and comfort that the truck offers has made all their work-related drives from Melbourne to Cairns efficient and effortless.

Chris Zielonka TransportAccording to Chris Zielonka, his tried and tested Isuzu NPR, “does it all.”

Based in South Australia, Chris freights everything and anything and his trusted NPR rarely lets him down, years after it rolled off the assembly line.
