As published in Truck and Track magazine:
RWT Commercial Services, based in the home of ingenuity – Britain’s Black Country engineering heartland, are best known for the supply, installation and while-you-wait cleaning of diesel particulate filters. Now, in response to customer demand, this versatile company is strengthening its repair and maintenance service division. In addition they are now supplying and using the new Maxima wireless heavy-duty column lifts (7.5 tonne per leg), selling them at around £13,000. RWT are also branching out into the stocking and fitting of new, competitively priced, truck, trailer and van tyres.
RWT have been using the new lifting equipment in their own workshop for six months to ensure its reliability. Beneficially the wireless columns have no cables trailing the floor for any trip hazard. Their battery packs are charged via a 240V supply and are fully weatherproof.
What is more, the firm has recently replaced its service fleet with new Ford Transit Custom vans, two of which are regularly in the London area carrying out installations and re-certifications for logistics companies and vehicles in the public sector.
With two depots near Wolverhampton, Bickford Truck Hire Ltd (www.bickfordtrucks.com) is one of many dedicated customers who use the services of RWT. Vehicles available for hire and purchase from Bickford range widely from tractor units and trailers, curtainsiders, tippers and crane and dropside flatbeds all the way through to grab loaders, hook loaders and skip loaders, not to mention box vans.
RWT has successfully modified the exhaust systems of Bickford’s existing hire fleet to meet the requirements of the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) ever since it came into force in 2008.
Company Director Miles Bickford Jnr sums up their longstanding customer-supplier relationship: “We have known Bob Turnock for many years and are pleased to be associated with his company RWT Commercial Services, especially with regard to his experience and knowledge of modern exhaust technology. We have always found that their work is of very high quality and that they react promptly and efficiently to our needs. Frankly that means everything to us in our hectic day-to-day business.”
