Speedy Hire (Speedy Asset Services) has recently ordered four tri-axle stepframe curtainsiders from Cartwright following their requirement for ‘a trailer that could carry anything’.
Cartwright engineers worked closely with Speedy Hire to create a trailer that was multi-purpose in terms of the products it could carry.
The company, an existing customer of Cartwright Rentals, will use the semi-trailers to carry a variety of products from rolling equipment such as large generators and compressors, to medium sized plant equipment including lawn mowers, lighting systems and tools for hire.
It is Speedy Hire’s first new build order from Cartwright.
Special features in the design of the curtainsiders for Speedy Hire include twist locks and lashing rings in the floor to enable the trailers to carry odd shaped products such as large containers or cages. Also included is a five-tonne winch and internal rear lifting ramp, and rear hydraulic ramps as well as an anti-fall facility with internal beams to prevent employees falling.
Speedy Hire is the UK’s leading hire provider offering a huge range of tools, plant and specialist hire equipment. It is also a provider of equipment, rental and support services to clients across the construction, infrastructure, industrial, manufacturing, facilities management, retail, leisure and events sectors, as well as to local trades and industry.
Mark Woodworth, Head of Transport and Logistics for Speedy Services, commented: “We wanted to find a trailer that could quickly and safely secure load in the back but also carry anything which was key as we have so many different assets in our fleet. This multi-purpose trailer from Cartwright meets our needs for the future.”
