Ekeri side-loader widens service scope for Alexanders Removals

Feb 02, 2018

Alexanders Removals and Storage has taken delivery of a side-opening 18-tonne vehicle from Finnish manufacturer Ab Ekeri Oy. According to Alexanders, the new truck will improve loading flexibility and speed up handling times.

The rigid-sided body comes with six doors, which open along the body length on the kerbside and are centrally locked for added security. For secure loading, there are lashing straps to the floor and on both walls. The Ekeri body allows access to any part of the load from the side or rear, which saves time and avoids having to manoeuvre items around one another or off-load through the rear.

The GRP-skinned body is also equipped with side and rear ramps for easy access. “We can load 20 pallets or five of our large storage boxes through the sides and rear,” said Alexanders’ General Manager David Ross. “As there are no posts in the way, we have unrestricted access with a loading length of 8,150 mm and a height of 2,740 mm.”

“We provide a comprehensive removals and storage service for domestic and commercial customers throughout the UK and abroad,” added David. “Given the wide variety of items we carry, it’s essential to have a vehicle which enables fast, secure and flexible loading. All in all the Ekeri body’s combination of loading flexibility, high security and speedy handling widens the scope of the service we provide and goes a long way to making sure we can provide the very best service – whoever the customer, whatever the job.”
