Alexanders praise Ekeri truck’s design and quality

Jul 23, 2019
In 2017, London-based Alexanders Removals and Storage took delivery of an Ekeri side-opening, 18-tonne rigid vehicle which, says the company, enables faster loading and security while requiring no maintenance or repairs.

The rigid-sided body is equipped with six doors that open along the body length on the kerbside and lock centrally. While for secure loading, the Ekeri-designed lashing strap system runs along each side of the floor and both walls.

General Manager Richard Lear said, “The Ekeri body has more than proved itself and despite a demanding operation, has neither deteriorated nor required any looking after – useful factors when it comes to keeping downtime low and ensuring a good return on investment.”

The Ekeri vehicle is designed to allow access to any point along the load bed, from the near-side or rear. This saves handling time and avoids having to manoeuvre items around one-another or to off-load through the rear to reach a given part of the load.

Manufactured by Ekeri in Finland, the GRP-skinned body is also equipped with side and rear ramps for easy access. “If required, we can load 20 pallets or five of our large storage boxes through the sides and rear,” added Richard. “And 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.”

“Overall the Ekeri body is perfect for mixed loads and multi-drop/collections where a certain degree of security is required. Add to that its hard-wearing, low maintenance components and we have efficiency and reliability rolled into one. Good for us and good for our customers too.”
