When well-known Gillingham landscape gardener Michael Hansford drove his beloved ‘Rosie’ onto the We Do Vans forecourt, owner Simon Prout was amazed.
Simon had sold the red Peugeot Tipper truck to Michael 24 years ago when he was the Fleet Sales Manager at PO Baker and Sons of Station Road in Gillingham. Michael loved the vehicle and christened it Rosie. But after 24 years, Michael felt it was time for an upgrade and took his beloved Rosie to We Do Vans, which has been owned by Simon since 2013.
Simon said: “Not only was the red Peugeot Tipper truck in tip top condition, but along with the normal paperwork it came complete with the original sales invoice, brochure together with the original, unused complimentary Bakers duster we gave Michael and the truck in 1997. I was amazed.”
“And aside from this, what was so unusual was Rosie has done less than 70,000 miles in all these years. After very good service Michael decided it was time for an update. He came back to me, although this time trading as We Do Vans but still in Station Road, and took delivery of an updated model. Let’s hope they share another happy 24 years together.”
Thank you all so, so much for the love and appreciation you’ve shown us since we launched the New Blackmore Vale.
