Midland Skip Hire signs up ATS-E to supply, service fleet
Nottinghamshire’s Midland Skip Hire has appointed ATS Euromaster to supply, fit and service tyres across its 62-strong fleet. ATS-E will provide monthly fleet inspections and rapid-response breakdown assistance across the waste disposal and skip hire company’s 37 trucks, eight trailers and five vans. The on-road fleet, plus 12 telescopic handlers used onsite for waste transfer, will be supported by the nationwide tyre specialist’s mobile service fleet – the UK’s largest at 1,000 vehicles.
Midland Skip Hire’s director Craig Currie said the move had followed occasional tyre services delivered by ATS-E: “We have been hugely impressed by ATS Euromaster’s efficiency and precision. It has led to a considerable reduction in fleet downtime, on top of which they have introduced a renewed clarity to our tyre management system.”
ATS-E supplies monthly itemised invoices and a detailed written report following fleet inspections, illustrating this clarity. They list service work undertaken, including alignment, balancing, twinning, turning on the rim, tyre regrooving, replacements and repairs.
“This is a level of administrative support we have not been used to with our previous supplier,” says Currie. “It makes budget management a lot easier.” Midland Skip Hire is gradually increasing its focus on national waste transportation and exportation to match its traditional local services, making ATS-E’s mobile service strength a key factor in the decision to sign a contract with the network.
