Facelift Increases Transport Fleet
30 January 2006 Email this articleFacelift has recently expanded its delivery capacity by acquiring a new high specification beaver tail from Colliers Truck Builders in Essex. The new beaver tail is the second for facelift who wanted to invest further capital into improved delivery and service, so keeping in line with its continued plan for expansion in 2006. Primarily, the vehicle will be used for transport movement out of the companies Rainham depot and used for collection and delivery of their scissor and boom fleet. Based on a 26 tonne, six wheel Volvo SM9 chassis, Company Operations Director Frank Page said ?The Volvo chassis was important to us as we know it be characterised by excellent safety as well as predictable stability and dependable road holding. We specified the new truck to help accommodate increased business, although we do have one other beaver tail in operation we wanted another vehicle with enhanced loading and unloading capabilities. This new vehicle was fitted with low profile tyres to keep the centre of gravity low, mantis folding ramps, electric winch, double row tie down points, enclosed headboard work lights and swing out safety beacons on the sides for safe loading in the dark, which all in all makes it far quicker, safer and easier to use.? Facelift is now discussing third and fourth trailers for their national depot locations.
