Dropsides and Tippers in Surrey

When you're choosing a vehicle for your business it is important that you select the right type so that you can carry out all of your business activities effectively and efficiently. You need to have a vehicle that is fit for purpose for every part of your business.

Depending on the type of business you run, you might find that panel vans or Lutons just aren't suited for the loads you're carrying. For example, carrying building and garden materials are more suited to dropside and tipper vans.

They provide a large and flat loading area that is simply surrounded by side boards leaving it as an open space. These side boards can be folded down on a dropside so that fork lifts, shovels or people can have direct access to the load area.

Tippers are different to dropsides because the entire load area can be mechanically raised up at an angle to tip the load out the back. Dropsides are able to carry a greater payload than a tipper, but what it lacks in payload, it more than makes up for in practical advantages because loading and unloading can be very fast.

Dropside trucks are available in single cab or crew cab meaning that you can carry up to six passengers. Dropsides are particularly useful for builders and anyone else that needs to transport a dirty or bulky load because they offer a generous payload and great practicality.

A tipper truck could be the answer if you need to carry loose items such as soil, sand, cement, branches, logs, stone, gravel or anything else that you could think of. Once you get to your destination you only need to open the tailgate and tip it all out saving hours of man power and shoveling!
