Horizon Reinforcing brings in reinforcements


Horizon Reinforcing & Crane Hire has added three new vehicles to its fleet which will be used to transporting steel as well as being available for hire.

A new Scania G450 XT cheesewedge with HIAB 558 crane and a new DAF XF 530 tractor unit with HIAB 658 crane will both be available for hire across Scotland while the new MAN TGM with dropside body will work delivering to construction sites.

Supplied by MV Commercials, the units will be supported by their support network with more than 70 approved locations in the UK and Ireland.

Stewart Dougall, Director at Horizon says: “We have a great relationship with MV Commercial and have been working with them for 12 years now. When we are looking to grow our fleet or have fleet replacement requirements we always return because we know that the service will be second to none and they’ll be able to supply exactly what we need. That combined with competitive pricing and a personal service makes it a no brainer.

“Our vehicles are out for hire at least five days a week, so we need to make sure we have robust assets that we know are going to get the job done and stand the test of time. That is why we chose a supplier that can provide the service and support we require.”

"Lead times for new trucks can be far longer than expected, but with MV Commercial we know we will always get a quick turnaround and have vehicles out and in operation unbelievably quickly,” added Douglas.

The Commercial Motor Show will feature an extensive webinar conference programme

Delegates attending the Commercial Motor Show this autumn (29 September to 1 October) can expect a packed webinar conference programme.

The Commercial Motor Show is a free-to-attend virtual exhibition, which will put hundreds of suppliers in front of thousands of truck operators and buyers.
