Quickslide has announced a significant number of new additions to its transport fleet, a move that represents the latest phase of planned investments for 2020 as the fabricator gears up for continued growth and looks to further improve its service offering.
The new vehicles, which represent an investment of £280,000, include two DAF rigid trucks that will be used for nationwide deliveries; a trio of VW Crafter High Roof vans that will be dedicated to deliveries, installations and services; plus a Mitsubishi L200 double cab pickup that will be available to account managers to visit clients across the UK.
The addition of Quickslide’s new trucks, vans and pickup, which will be liveried in the company’s branding, will reportedly make a positive impact on the overall running costs of the Brighouse based manufacturer’s transport fleet, which now includes six 18‐tonne trucks, plus 12 cars and vans.
Quickslide’s managing director, Ben Weber, commented: “Quickslide has enjoyed nine years of continuous growth, and thanks to continuing demand for our market leading products, including our exciting next generation vertical slider, Legacy, we have invested £2m for 2020, which will cover onsite improvements and new machinery as well as continual developments to our service offering.
“The new trucks and vans are a vital part of that service, both in terms of reliability and efficiency, but also with regards to quality control as we transport our products nationwide. All of our vehicles are covered in Quickslide branding of course, and by acting as mobile billboards, it was vital that all this branding was on point and was able to communicate exactly what we do and who we are to our customers and members of the public.
“While the majority of the fleet is devoted to the transportation of our products, the new L200 pickup has been dedicated to the sales team,” continued Ben. “We have worked extremely hard to create an enviable reputation for our customer service, and this is one way in which we can demonstrate a more personal approach, as well as a better understanding of our customers’ environments and their specific requirements.”
