Groupe Renault UK has enhanced its ‘Off the shelf’ conversion offering with the appointment of TruckCraft Bodies as the official supplier of its factory-built Renault Master Luton Box and Renault Master Luton Low Loader conversions.

TruckCraft Bodies, which was established in 2003 and is based in Greater Manchester, will build the official Renault Master Luton Box and Renault Master Low Loader with immediate effect. The development strengthens the partnership between the company and Groupe Renault UK, with TruckCraft Bodies already an accredited convertor in the manufacturer’s bespoke ‘Tailor Made’ conversions programme.

The LCVs are key models in the Renault Pro+ Commercial Vehicles ‘Off the shelf’ conversion line-up, which is available to purchase directly through Renault dealerships. The range is based on the versatile Renault Master, What Van? 2020 Van of the Year, in either Chassis Cab or Platform Cab format. It also includes Tipper and Dropside variants, all of which provide customers with the convenience of a ready-to-use conversion. For absolute peace-of-mind, Renault ‘Off the shelf’ conversions come with the same three-year/100,000-mile warranty as a regular Renault Pro+ Panel Van.

TruckCraft Bodies was chosen to be the official builder of the Renault Master Luton Box and Renault Master Luton Low Loader after impressing the manufacturer with the quality of its conversions, its customer-centric focus and the flexibility of its operation. The appointment of TruckCraft Bodies ensures that Renault ‘Off the shelf’ customers will benefit from easily-accessible, ready-made conversions that meet their requirements and conform to Renault’s exacting standards.

Importantly, with TruckCraft Bodies’ production facility encompassing 60 bays and a team of vastly skilled technicians, there are no issues with supply. Depending on the size of the order, customers of the Renault Master Luton Box and Renault Master Luton Low Loader can often take delivery in short timeframes.

The ‘Off the shelf’ Renault Master Luton Box LL35 (long length, 3.5-tonne) comes complete with the Euro 6d-compliant dCi 130 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine, paired to an efficiency-enhancing six-speed manual gearbox, and is available in front-wheel drive or rear-wheel formats. The conversion offers a payload of up to 1,175kg, while also providing customers with such standard features as load lock rails, lashing points, load area lighting, Luton head storage, rear step and rear roller shutter.

Customers of the Renault Master Luton Low Loader LL35 (long length, 3.5-tonne) enjoy a choice of two efficient engines, both of which drive through the front wheels. The conversion can be specified with dCi 135 or ENERGY dCi 150 power units, which are paired as standard to a six-speed manual transmission. The ENERGY dCi 150 engine is also available with the Quickshift6 six-speed automatic gearbox.

Providing a useful payload of 1,250kg and a loading height of only 550mm making it ideal for the likes of removal businesses, the Renault Master Luton Low Loader comes with a comprehensive specification that adds to its usability. Standard features include load lock rails, lashing points, load area lighting, Luton head storage, rear step and rear barn doors.

Both vehicles are supplied in the Business level of trim. Standard features such as DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB socket, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, remote central locking, electric windows, multi-function trip computer, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and Hill Start Assist add to the car-like feel of the New Renault Master.  

Stephen Whitcombe, Head of Brand for Pro+ Commercial Vehicles, Groupe Renault UK, said: “TruckCraft Bodies has already proved to be a highly valued partner for our accredited ‘Tailor Made’ convertor programme and we are pleased to now extend the relationship to include the build of two of our most popular ‘Off the shelf’ conversions. The scale and expertise of its operation, plus the quality of its work, ensures that ‘Off the shelf’ conversion customers continue to enjoy the benefits of specialised light commercial vehicles combined with the convenience of easy ordering and the peace-of-mind that the entire vehicle is covered by a comprehensive manufacturer warranty.”

Paul Leary, Founder and Managing Director of TruckCraft Bodies, added: “We are exceptionally pleased to be a part of the successful Renault ‘Off the shelf’ conversion programme. The manufacturer’s confidence in our conversions, team and capacity recognizes our commitment to delivering quality products and our focus on customer service. We are looking forward to strengthening our partnership with Groupe Renault UK and providing customers with some of the best light commercial vehicles that are available in the UK.”

‘Off the shelf’ conversions are complemented by the Renault Pro+ ‘Tailor Made’ conversion facility. The programme offers access to over 30 convertors, all of which are accredited by Groupe Renault UK, who can meet customers’ individual requirements with bespoke conversions. The versatility and adaptability of the New Renault Master allows a whole host of bespoke conversion possibilities, spanning ambulances to welfare vehicles and horseboxes to car transporters.
