In a change to their usual job of trans­port­ing scrap metal in Man­ches­ter, on the 2nd and 3rd May our dri­vers Wayne, Lee, Neil, Chris and John and their fam­i­lies took our fleet of trucks to Truck­fest Peter­bor­ough. Truck­fest is an annual pil­grim­age where truck dri­vers and enthu­si­asts from around the coun­try can meet up, relax and bond with each over a beer and a burger or two.

It’s also a chance for us to show off our fan­tas­tic fleet of trucks and even try pick up some awards along the way. Hun­dreds of trucks turned up buffed, pol­ished and gleam­ing for the chance to win recog­ni­tion. We took great pride in dis­play­ing our Die Hard, James Bond and Ter­mi­na­tor trucks.
The Ter­mi­na­tor achieved a Highly Com­mended award after being entered into the ‘Cus­tom Non-​Working Truck’ cat­e­gory, while the Die Hard and James Bond were entered in the ‘Cus­tom Work­ing Truck’ cat­e­gory, in com­pe­ti­tions to decide on the best truck mod­i­fied from their orig­i­nal specification.

Our Sca­nia 143 93 plate clas­sic entered the ‘Non-​Working Show Truck’ cat­e­gory while our Honda pick up and Car Trans­porter entered into the ‘Best Light Com­mer­cial’ cat­e­gory, weigh­ing less than 3.5 tonnes.

Wayne said “It really is a great social activ­ity, meet­ing up with all the other dri­vers who we only see once a year. The dri­vers and our fam­i­lies look for­ward to shar­ing a beer or two with them and the odd sausage from the BBQ.”

Truck­fest was a mas­sive suc­cess and the per­fect oppor­tu­nity to bond with other peo­ple who are just as pas­sion­ate about trucks as we are. Truck­fest 2016 is sure to be just as event­ful and we plan on mak­ing even more of an impres­sion than we did this year.

To see our trucks do what they do best don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact us for infor­ma­tion on our skip hire and trans­porta­tion services.
