Whether you’re hiring a single powered access machine or 20, the importance of how and when those machines are delivered to your premises or construction site should never be underestimated. We have invested heavily in providing our own, in-house transport fleet so that we can take full responsibility and control of every aspect of the delivery process. We have a fleet of almost 50 delivery trucks and fully trained drivers on the road each day. It’s no wonder then that having your machine delivered safely, on time and with the correct documentation is one of our key objectives, and reflects many of our goals that have been developed in conjunction with the Institute of Customers Service, which we are proud to be a member of. It’s the little things that count – like offering you a morning or afternoon delivery slot whenever possible to ensure that you can keep working on your project, rather than hanging around all day for a machine to arrive. We directly employ our delivery drivers and they are fully trained in all relevant health and safety procedures. Not only that, but our vehicles are also fitted with the latest safety and environmental features – such as fall arrest systems to ensure driver safety and deck lighting to assist when loading and unloading in the dark. They’ve also got forward folding ramps to reduce drag and therefore reduce CO2 emissions and increase fuel efficiency. Telematics in the vehicles further improve driver safety by monitoring speed, braking, over-revving, etc. We have gained the FORS Silver accreditation for our good working practices in the way we operate our delivery and service van fleets, and we’ve now set our sights on achieving Gold. We’ve recently ordered three further low loader delivery trailers to add to the 14 that we have purchased during the past 15 months, and we’ll continue with our programme of investment to ensure that your machines are delivered at the right price to the right place and at the right time.
