The WorkReady programme from Mercedes-Benz Trucks provides operators with off-the-shelf trucks at very short notice.
The programme allows customers to try before they buy, bringing together pre-bodies new chassis and approved new vehicles.
Speaking about the scheme, Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK marketing communications manager, Ben Grayson, said: “WorkReady is aimed at operators who, for any one of a multitude of reasons, may not have the time to acquire a vehicle in the conventional way.”
The process of ordering the base chassis from a dealer, waiting for the body to be built and any modifications to be completed can take months.
However, not everyone that needs a truck can wait that long.
All vehicles in the scheme are less than seven years old and have covered less than 700,000 km.
