Professional audio services and event transport business Entertec has taken delivery of a tailor-made trailer from Schmitz Cargobull, designed to support its events business.
The Schmitz Cargobull FP25 dry freight box van trailer will be used to transport large audio hardware across the UK and mainland Europe, with a bespoke folding wall that allows loading either from the rear or the side.
Entertec specifically requested this so that for live events, the trailer can offer the versatility of both conventional rear-door loading, and side-door loading for exhibition contracts involving large, bulky crates and set pieces.
James Tossell, Director, Entertec, says: “All of the four trailers we operate are designed for very specific needs and our latest purchase from Schmitz Cargobull is no exception. We chose Schmitz Cargobull because others in our industry highly recommended them on the basis of trailer quality and performance. We are very pleased to receive a trailer that fits exactly with our unique requirements.”
Supplied on Cargobull Finance, Entertec’s trailer includes a variety of features designed to help the business carry out its transportation operations more efficiently and effectively.
The base frame includes ferry shackles for overseas journeys, while a compressed airgun with a 15m hose means operatives can easily clean the rails on the floor on which the side door slides. FERROPLAST® insulation in the roof, sliding door, sidewall, bulkhead and rear door also reduces condensation formation inside the trailer, making the Schmitz Cargobull trailer the obvious choice for transporting high-value, moisture-sensitive items.
Entertec was also attracted by the low maintenance requirements of the galvanised and bolted chassis, plus the strength of Schmitz Cargobull’s European support network.
James says: “We expect to use our new trailer extensively across Europe. Therefore, while we don’t expect to have any equipment issues, you never can predict the future. Schmitz Cargobull has a very strong pan-European network so when I realised we could get servicing and parts quickly and easily wherever we are, I knew that we really wanted a Schmitz Cargobull trailer.”
Entertec expects to be able to run its new trailer for at least a decade.
