Trailer and Vehicle Mounted Forklifts
The invention of the truck mounted fork-lift has revolutionised the distribution industry. The forklift can be carried on the rear of the vehicle or trailer, without any loss of carrying space. In less than one minute the forklift can dismount and be ready for work, making the vehicle and driver completely self sufficient. The driver can then unload the product to wherever the customer wishes.
Inner City "Urban" Trailers
Inner City or Urban trailers as they are known, are the complete solution to delivering around busy cities and limited access locations. The trailers are significantly shorter in length, and allow transportation in excess of 30 pallets with an increased pay-load. These trailers are used in multi-drop situations and are all equipped with Tail-lift facilities.
