We have further invested in our transport fleet following the purchase of a new Nooteboom trailer.

The new Nooteboom 4 axle semi low loader, cost £120,000 and will be used primarily to transport the Merritts fleet of 36 Te Versa-Lift 60/80 forklift trucks.

As is tradition with Merritts fleet of transport vehicles, the new trailer was ordered with features that are bespoke to the needs of the heavy machinery moving industry.

The features and specifications of our bespoke Nooteboom trailer include:

  • Special floor reinforcement to withstand high point loads
  • Electric remote control axle steering
  • Air suspension with raise and lower function
  • Extra-long hydraulic folding ramps with hydraulic sliding functionality
  • SAF axles

Commenting on the investment, Managing Director, James Merritt said, “We are primarily an engineering business which specialises in the removal, transport and installation of heavy machinery. This requires us to have a continuous programme of re-investment in our transport and lifting equipment. Ensuring we offer a machinery moving service using a modern fleet of vehicles is an important facilitator in winning new work as we are acting as an extension of our clients brand.”
