From the website of Witham Specialist Vehicles:
A high proportion of surplus MoD vehicles are exported by ourselves, fully supported by a vast inventory of spare parts and service items.
Vehicles and plant can be purchased from us ‘as is’ or fully reconditioned and prepared to customers requirements. Our fully trained staff are able to undertake all aspects of work on all types of vehicles and plant we sell, in our modern fully equipped workshops.
Whatever your requirement for MoD vehicles is, Witham SV can provide you with a cost effective, dependable solution, on time and on budget.
