Dennis Eagle

Dennis Eagle has appointed TotalKare to replace its heavy-duty mobile column lifts throughout the UK. Halesowen-based TotalKare will be responsible for servicing and maintaining more than 50 different sets of column lifts at 10 service centres around the country.

“Our service centres offer quality facilities committed to meeting all our clients’ repair and maintenance needs. We have an established reputation for producing high quality refuse collection vehicles, so having a reliable and trusted supplier in place is imperative to our continued success by helping to ensure our vehicles spend as much time on the road as possible,” said David Nicholls, service operations manager for Dennis Eagle.

National account manager for TotalKare Brian Young said: “We have been supplying Dennis Eagle with market-leading vehicle lifting solutions for more than 15 years and the renewal of this large-scale service contract extends this even further."

"Our flexible, cable-free T8DC column lifts are perfect for refuse vehicles in the waste industry and the absence of interconnecting cables means Dennis Eagle is reducing the chance of slips, trips and falls, making the workshop a safer environment for its operatives.”
