Roger Dyson’s transporters are “the best in the west”
Toyota lays claim to “the best built cars in the world” so Swinford Motors, the manufacturer’s representative in County Mayo, Ireland, can be expected to know a thing or two about high quality vehicles.
That’s why, when the dealer group needed another two-car transporter, specialist bodybuilder Roger Dyson was the only name in the frame.
Swinford Motors’ new Dyson Hydraloader 3000La has a 3000kg capacity Low approach sliding bed which is mounted on a 5.0-tonne Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 518CDI chassis.
After fabricating and fitting the body, technicians at Roger Dyson’s factory in Droitwich, Worcestershire, also sprayed the vehicle in Swinford’s eye-catching red and silver colours, and applied the livery.
“Nobody builds a body like Roger,” explains Managing Director Pat Kelly. “It’s a great piece of kit and finished, as always, to the most exacting standards.”
“We’ve been buying Dyson units for some years now and they are always superb – the build quality, reliability and the way they stand up to years of hard work are way ahead of the competition.
“We bought one unit from Roger in 1997, which we then sold on in 2004 – it’s still running strongly today, and look as good as ever.”
And he adds: “We don’t even bother approaching other manufacturers now… I just tell Roger what we need and he delivers! The standard of service is excellent too – everything is delivered on time and in perfect condition, and Roger is a real gentleman to deal with too.”
Swinford Motors is based in Swinford; Mr Kelly also runs two other Toyota dealerships in County Mayo under the Pat Kelly Autopoint banner, at Ballina and Castlebar.
The name Swinford Motors dates back to 1930 but the company was bought by Pat Kelly and his wife Nora in 1970 – they sold their first Toyota three years later and have represented the brand in the Mayo area ever since.Back to News & Events
