Readers' Choice Awards 2023: Best Vehicle Manufacturer

“Winning this award confirms that Maxi Mover delivery vans are, without doubt, the best in the marketplace,” says sales director, Mark Harris …

“Designed and built to deliver loads more for less, much bigger payloads and much bigger volumes means more deliveries everyday, maximising our customers’ ROI – every kilo matters, and every penny counts,” he continues. “It’s great that many of our customers from the furniture world – whether small independent retailers or national wholesalers and manufacturers – believe this too. 

“A big thank you to all the readers and voters who truly believe in our product. If you’re not already a Maxi Mover customer, then we would love to hear from you – our expert van sales team are always there to help, you can visit our new website, or call us anytime at the office on 01673 863300.”

Maxi Mover is the UK’s largest low-loader delivery van manufacturer, Mark explains: “We’re not a dealer or finance broker, and we’ve had a challenging time in the last 12 months, overcoming the global supply delays from all brands of chassis cab manufacturers – they’ve reduced production numbers from their factories in Europe, which has ultimately caused a storm in the UK’s transport industry. 

“Demand has been very high since Covid, and supply remains restricted, meaning many transport departments are not able to replace or add to their vehicle fleets – so they’re having to continue to operate older, high-mileage, over-age vans, which are now becoming more unreliable and spending more time off the road in repair garages waiting for parts (which are also now in short supply – what was once available next day is now in some instances 3-4 weeks).

“It’s a real storm, and it’s set to continue for the next 18 months. Many of our savvy customers are planning ahead and reserving new vehicles with us so they get replacement Maxi Movers when they need them, on time and ready to go, avoiding the frustrations of continued vehicle supply disruptions. With our large stocks of vans, we’re able to overcome these obstacles – unlike our competitors, who are not always able to supply on time.”

Despite the myriad challenges, Maxi Mover has plenty more up its sleeves. “Continuous improvement is in our DNA,” says Mark. “We always strive to design and develop new lighter, more efficient Maxi Mover vans, using the latest materials and technologies available, and partnering with leading world-class suppliers. And yes, we do have a new model just around the corner – a real gamechanger. Watch this space!”

In all, there are many reasons Maxi Mover topped this category, says Mark – not least an ambitious ethos that undepins everything the business does. “We don’t do average, mediocre or OK,” he concludes. “Those words aren’t in our vocabulary. 

“The entire team at Maxi Mover are focused and committed to manufacturing and supplying the best high-performance low-loader delivery vans for our customers. We are not a standard van dealer or finance broker with limited choices – we’re a one-stop shop, offering our customers a full turnkey solution so they get exactly what they want, all under one roof, so their new Maxi Mover van is ready for business form day one. 

“We offer full branding, popular and bespoke options, competitive finance options, and an aftersales service that’s second to none – all from our factory in Lincoln, where we started over 25 years ago. Maxi Mover vans are simply fit for purpose and built to last. We are with our customers for the whole journey, not just the initial sale. Visit our website and discover the difference.”
