Earl Transport has returned to TIP Trailer Services for 14 new SDC curtainsider trailers. The 4.2m units have been supplied by TIP on a five year leasing arrangement, which also includes full repair and maintenance.

All 14 trailers are working on a contract for UK pet food and healthcare manufacturer

Pets Choice, who has been a customer of Earl Transport for almost 40 years, and feature striking liveries to represent the different Pets Choice brands.

“As part of our ongoing long term contract with Pets Choice, they approached us to add extra trailers to their distribution fleet to cope with the significant upturn in their business over the last 12 months. Without a shadow of doubt and based on our successful long-term experience with them, TIP was the natural choice for us when it came to supplying us the new equipment,” said Peter Hughes, MD, Earl Transport.

The new trailers will be operating out of the main Pets Choice distribution centre in Blackburn and are expected to cover 80,000 miles per year.

“The partnership with TIP works really well for us. Any request is dealt with quickly and efficiently. They are always interested in trying to help us and their positive approach to our business ensures we get the right deal every time,” added Hughes.
