Materials handling equipment supplier Budget Forktrucks has invested in a new bespoke trailer to enhance its ability to transport its vehicles to customers in a safe, fast and efficient manner.
The new trailer is manufactured by Nooteboom and augments Budget Forktrucks’ ongoing delivery and expansion of services strategy.
The benefits of the specialised trailer include curtain-side bodywork to protect forklifts from rain whilst they are being transported. It also has a roof that can be opened to enable over-height forklifts to be loaded safely.
Up to eight forklifts can be carried at a time, and easy loading is available thanks to a hydraulically operated ramp. All of these features help to ensure a better service for the company’s customers, whether they are requesting a hire or buying a vehicle.
Andy Evans, Budget Forktrucks’ Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to add another dimension to our offering. The new low loader trailer greatly improves our ability to transport our vehicles and, ultimately, our ability to deliver a quality service to our customers.
“The new low loader will join our company’s existing fleet of two purpose-built lorries, which have a carrying capacity of up to 22 tonnes, and the semi-sloping low loader with full width ramp.”
The team can deliver anywhere in London at competitive rates, and Budget Forktrucks’ transport and hire team can provide customers with a fast same-day delivery service. The company’s drivers are very experienced in transporting a full range of materials handling equipment.
