Online vehicle remarketing company Copart UK have expanded their fleet with an investment in 79 new DAF and Volvo based specialist multi-car transporters. These new 7 and 8 car transporters will both replace older vehicles with more efficient models and further support their industry leading vehicle collection service as the business continues to grow.
The transporters are being converted to Copart standards by specialist transporter builders Belle Trailers, with the first units going into production this winter to further support Copart’s continued growth and busier seasonal period.
Copart are working closely with Belle Trailers during the production phase to develop new features to improve the collection process; including a new rear ramp to enhance the safe loading of customer vehicles and fitting the latest camera technology to safeguard Copart drivers and other road users. And, with environmental factors in mind, updated telematics will deliver greater fleet efficiency and further improve business performance.
Phil Briggs, Director of Operations Centres, Transport & Engineering at Copart, said:
“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.”
Adrian Parker, Managing Director at Belle Trailers said:
“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.”
