Businessman Guy Nicholls is driving his new venture forward with a 10-strong fleet of top-spec MAN eight-wheeler tipper trucks and is already looking to double the size of his fleet before the end of the year.
Ipswich-based Tippers R Us has invested £1 million to bring eight Euro 6 TGS 35.400 and two TGS 32.400 to its fleet in a deal struck by MAN sales specialist Chris Benefer.
Guy said: “I have had MAN vehicles in my fleets for other businesses and know the brand.
“Tippers R Us began with a MAN Euro 5 model from the Top Used range, and that was such a success I decided to go for 10 brand new Euro 6s.
“The deal has come in at around £1 million and I am seriously looking to double the fleet before the end of the year.
“I know Chris and the local service team are reliable so it was an obvious choice for the company.
“Our vehicle rental arm has operated MANs for more than 10 years and our plant hire company Fork Rent Plc, which is the largest fleet of JCB telehandlers in the world is now looking at buying MAN.”
Chris added: “MAN was able to do a successful deal with Guy and Tippers R Us to supply the Euro 5 to meet an urgent demand.
“The quality and spec of the brand speaks for itself and that has led to the expansion of the fleet and the order for 10 Euro 6 TGS tippers for delivery before the end of January.
All the trucks have the MAN Tipmatic gear box and they have a mixture of Thompson load master and Thompson load master light bodies.
All the trucks have a full set of FOURS cameras side guards and signs on them along with LED flashing lights and LED reverse lights making them as safe as possible for other traffic and road users.
They all have alloy wheels and come in with a payload of 19 tonnes.
