Earlier in 2016 we took delivery of two new 8.55t Mitsubishi Fuso trucks. They worked very well, so we have returned to our supplier, Rygor Heathrow and ordered another new custom made lorry for cooking oil delivery and collection.
We’re getting another of the same chassis cabs, but this time have made a few improvements to the fit out, by reducing the height and length of the box – the part in which we we carry the cooking oil for delivery and collection. This means it is easier and safer for the driver to manoeuvre the lorry. We have also simplified the bunded floor so it is safer, stronger, easier to maintain, easier to clean, and weighs less.
The effect of using such a custom made lorry for cooking oil delivery and collection, is that our drivers can concentrate on their job much easier and provide a better and safer service for our customers.
It also means all of our vehicles are operating to the Euro 6 emissions standards. This is the latest, and highest standard of operation of vehicle engines, and reduces the emissions produced from our fleet of vehicles – minimising our environmental impact when making cooking oil deliveries and collections.
This vehicle will have all the same safety equipment as the others, as this is the base standard for all Proper Oils vehicles to ensure we’re providing the best service we can.
