“We are delighted to have made this significant addition to our transport fleet with the support and expertise of Belle Trailers. Our investment will ensure that we continue to provide an efficient and safe fleet of vehicles to provide the industry-leading collection times which our insurance and automotive customers have come to expect.”

“We are pleased to be part of this considerable investment by our very valued customer, Copart. The Belle Transporter range has developed strongly over the past 4 years and is now fully galvanised with many unique features. Built within Belle Trailers workshops in the UK, the product ordered is specialised and will benefit from the expertise of both Belle Trailers and Copart.”
