Forklift Assisted Offload PDF Print E-mail

 

E & S J Walpole Ltd has grown up with it's customers, offering solutions to their requirements when needed.  Our business has developed in such a way that some of our larger customers required us to provide an offloading facility.  The company decided that the best way to offer this was to fit forklifts to our trailers, we therefore made a significant investment in Moffett Mounty forklifts and adapted some of our trailers accordingly.

Over the years as the business has grown, we now have built up a fleet of 25 Moffett Mounty forklift trucks.  Indeed as our relationship with Moffett of Ireland http://www.cargotec.com/ who provide the forklifts has developed, we have been able to order bespoke vehicles.  Most recently we have begun to purchase a model of forklift which is able to move left and right by re-pointing the wheels, as well as traditionally forwards and backwards.  This allows us to offer even more flexibilty to our customers, by being able to reach more difficult to access areas.
By offering a self offloading facility we are able to specialise in home delivery of sheds, cabins, and rolled turf, site deliveries of bricks, blocks and tiles, we have even been able to offer our forklift offload service delivering motor cycles to a film set in France.  Essentially, whatever your business needs delivered, E & SJ Walpole can deliver it.

For the majority of the year, a large proportion of our fleet is based at Hockwold.  From here we haul Q Lawns turf all around the United Kingdom.  We deliver to nationwide and independent garden centres, housing developments, landscaping companies, and individuals, offering our self offload facility.  For Q Lawns we undertake more than just delivery, we schedule the haulage to run as efficiently as possible, we contact customers with delivery times, and the vehicles run with Q Lawns livery.
Q Lawns are expert garden turf growers and a specialist turf supplier. Providing customers with the facilities to buy turf online. You can review their product at http://www.qlawns.co.uk/
