Sell your truck using the power of video
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. Sell your used truck, trailer or van on Commercialmotor.com using the power of video.
Our sellers have always been able to add up to 10 images to their listing, but now they can now select a YouTube video from their own account to display alongside their photos. It doesn’t have to be much, just a quick walkaround filmed on a smartphone will be more than enough to show your buyers exactly what you’re selling. There's no need for an expensive cameraman and lots of fancy equipment.
It doesn’t cost anything extra either, just the usual price of £35+VAT per listing, and its available to all manual upload sellers.
Because people are always watching videos on their mobile phones, your video advert has been optimised with smartphones in mind. It’s ideal for reaching buyers wherever they are and whatever they are doing. If you have a used vehicle to sell, click on 'Sell a vehicle' and try adding a video today.
Mar-Train takes delivery of new five-axle trailer from Andover
Andover Trailers has supplied long-term customer, Northern Ireland-based Mar-Train, with a new five-axle extending step frame trailer.
It includes 10-tonne lashing points which have been engineered to sit within the frame itself when not being used, lowering the chance of accidental damage. The centre of the trailer's frame includes further securing positions that allow 14-tonne lashing points to be individually placed to suit different load requirements.
Mar-Train’s 14.95m trailer can also extend by a further 2.5m, providing additional flexibility when required and the trailer extends via two outer box beams, which have been uprated for shorter, more concentrated loads. Of the five BPW axles, three are fixed, with the remaining two featuring self-tracking steering and rated to 12 tonnes.
BPW air suspension with raise and lower control is also fitted, which allows the trailer to be lowered to aid loading and unloading. The trailer - the third five-axle extending step frame trailer the company has acquired from Andover - will transport Terex crushers and screeners across the UK and Ireland.
Tim Martin, MD at Mar-Train, based in County Down, said the company hopes to keep it in operation for more than 20 years. “The trailer is designed to carry its payload on a very short track length, which means a lot of weight - and incredible force - is placed on a very small area”, he added. “Happily, we know that Andover has both the design and manufacturing skills to build something that’s more than up to the task.”
