Road Transport Expo teams up with ProTruck Auctions for bumper summer event

On Saturday 2 July, brand-new industry event the Road Transport Expo will be hosting an exciting live auction experience for those in the market for a quality used truck or trailer.

Organised by ProTruck Auctions, part of The Fleet Auction Group, the auction will be hosted both online and via a live bidding environment at NAEC Stoneleigh.

The auction will feature more than 150 wheeled assets from leading blue-chip operators, including tractor units, rigids, car transporters, tippers and trailers.

Visitors will be able to explore live auction updates whilst at the show via a virtual ‘rolling stock catalogue’ on ProTruck’s stand RB201 in the outside Used Trucks Zone at the Road Transport Expo.

All vehicles and machinery sold at ProTrucks' auctions undergo a full inspection and appraisal process, whilst high resolution photographs and audio recording of running engines are all available to website visitors.

And if you are completely new to bidding at auction, then the friendly team at ProTruck will be happy to help.

“Simply call us ahead of the show on 01427 871500, or come over to meet us at the live Road Transport Expo and we’ll guide you through the straightforward process of registering and knowing what to expect at auction,” said ProTruck business development manager Richard Ward.

The team is also on hand to discuss any future fleet disposal requirements your business might have and explain how the auction route might be beneficial.

Protruck Auctions and The Fleet Auction Group host truck auctions every Wednesday throughout the year, in addition to hosting at clients' locations for a wide range of commercial vehicles - from general haulage and vans, through to bespoke trailers, plant and machinery.

“We are excited to meet with visitors to our stand at the Road Transport Expo to help them explore the range of services we offer both for the acquisition and disposal of quality commercial fleet vehicles,” added Ward, "and are confident that we can maximise the best possible returns for your business.”

  • The Road Transport Expo takes place from 30 June to 2 July at NAEC Stoneleigh. It is completely free to attend and combines a vast exhibition of more than 125 manufacturers and businesses, alongside two stages of seminar talks and presentations. Book your free ticket here!

Keltruck supplies Scotts Plant and Haulage with three new Scania P410 XTs

Evesham-based Scotts Plant and Haulage has taken delivery of three new Scania tippers, and has another four on order.

The P410 XTs, which have all been specified with City Safe Windows in the passenger door, and Boweld tipper bodies, join a fleet of 18 trucks, 12 of which are Scanias.

“We aim to be the best in our field,” said Scott Witheford, MD of Scotts Plant and Haulage. “We have chosen Scania trucks as we consider them to be the best. They are reliable, minimising downtime, and they are fuel efficient too.”

Witheford explained that the tippers have been supplied on six-year full R&M contracts, and will be maintained by Keltruck’s Droitwich site. “We don’t want to be involved with the repair and maintenance of our trucks in-house, so we have opted to take a package to cover their upkeep for the entire length of time we intend to own them,“ said Witheford. “Keltruck Droitwich always go the extra mile for us – providing a first-class service for the life of the truck with repairs, maintenance and parts when we need them.”

The trucks will be used to supply muckaway, aggregates, sand and gravel, topsoil and road planings throughout Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, and Oxfordshire.

Scania will be exhibiting at Road Transport Expo at NAEC Stoneleigh (30 June to 2 July). Register now for FREE
