Ekeri rigid bodywork passes seven-year test

Apr 14, 2018
Carmarthenshire-based Jason Williams Removals has delayed purchasing a new Ekeri rigid body even though its existing Ekeri unit is over seven years old because, according to the company’s owner, there is no reason to replace it.

“We put the current body on the road way back in 2011,” explained Jason Williams. “Since then we have not needed to do a single thing by way of maintenance or replacement parts – it just keeps on going!”

Seven years ago, Jason Williams declined the opportunity to purchase a conventional box body and instead opted for the Ekeri, because of its easier and more secure loading.

This combination, along with the internal load locking bars and multiple strapping points, make the vehicle more flexible and easier to load than a conventional removals lorry.

“We have definitely made savings on the service and maintenance side of things,” said Jason. “Each time the Mercedes Benz Actros cab is serviced, the bodywork, doors and joints are checked over and nothing has needed any attention in the seven years it’s been on the road. Quite literally, it looks as good as the day we bought it.”

In addition to carrying out removals, Jason Williams specialises in the high-value auto parts sector and according to Jason, the robust bodywork makes the Ekeri body ideal for carrying palletised loads, as well as heavy individual items, with no body-flexing during transit.
