A Boniface Champion Heads North to Lionheart Garage


From their base in Alnwick, Northumberland, Ian and Tracey Edridge run their very successful business - Lionheart Garage, providing a comprehensive range of garage services to Alnwick and the surrounding areas. Tracey commented “we work with a fantastic team of staff and through their hard work, commitment and exceptional customer service, we have built a reputation for being a friendly, local garage who are dedicated to getting their customers back on the road with minimum disruption”. As well as providing garage services, Lionheart run a number of recovery vehicles, the latest addition being this very impressive looking Champion slidebed built by Boniface Engineering in Thetford.

Before ordering the vehicle, Ian and Tracey visited the Boniface factory to take look at the facilities and discuss the various options available to them.  After careful consideration they opted for a new Iveco Daily fitted with a Champion aluminium slidebed, fully customised to suit their particular needs They also had the vehicle sign written so it could go straight to work once it got back to Northumberland. 

The Champion slidebed is a strong, reliable, and extremely dependable product – ideal for everyday transportation as well as more challenging recovery situations. Available in both 3.5t and 5t capacities – the Champion is ideally suited to chassis in the range of 7t to 12t GVW and can be fitted in conjunction with either a 2nd car lift or rear tow bar.  Standard features of the product include galvanised subframe and tilt frames which prevent rusting and prolong equipment life, sliding hydraulic winch enabling a straight pull onto the casualty vehicle and the standard bed features an initial low approach section within the side raves which helps when loading low vehicles. As with all Boniface products there are numerous options available to fully customise the product to your exact requirements.  Lionheart’s 7.2t Iveco was specified with 3 chassis mounted lockers, 4 x side winching points, radio remote control for the winch with cab holder - buzzer and charger, LED beacon, LED work lights, Halo strobe lights fitted to the front grill - flyer and rear light carrier increasing visibility when the bed is deployed, wrecker kit, wheel skates and much more.
