2 Start Training has ordered four new 11m long Cartwright, single-deck, tandem-axle box van trailers which feature side skirts.

Paul Moon, managing director of 2 Start Training said: “We chose Cartwright because we have used other suppliers in the past and their service and issues with trailers led us to find a new partner.”

Further specification includes a Haldex braking system with roll stability, Cheetah aerodynamic side guards and a phenolic coated plywood floor rated to ISO 1496 loading specification.  

Lucy Wood, design and marketing executive, said: “We have had no issues with our current trailer and customers have positively commented on the design and colours.”

One out of the four trailers was delivered in March, with the rest expected between July and the end of August, and will be based across 2 Start Training’s bases in Reading, Southampton, Worthing and Portsmouth.

New DAFs have been bought, too: due at the end of June is a CF FT450 4x2 tractor. Waiting to greet it is a LF230 4x2 rigid which arrived in April.

“We are part way through a programme of updating our fleet from old to new. We wanted to replace four trailers and purchase another for a DAF on order,” Wood explained.

“We purchased DAF because we receive exceptional service from Adams Moray in Portsmouth; our local DAF dealership. DAF is a world renowned manufacturer of HGVs and we are committed to providing the best quality vehicles to our customers.”
