last serviced at Mercedes in 2016 but truck will be sold with fresh service included. Front discs and pads replaced April 2018 and only max 4000 miles covered since. Has had two front tyres in my ownership, one in mid 2016 the other mid 18 but will have 80% of life left easily. Tail lift serviced and adjusted Feb 2018. Suspension air cylinder replaced in 2019.

To prep the transporter for sale it is currently undergoing a Pre-MOT inspection by an independent company as due to covid-19 HGV MOT's cannot be carried out, any work identified will be carried out and are happy to provide the information from this inspection and receipts, if a buyer wants the truck prior to an MOT being available we will discount the cost of that being done.
