Truck and trailer hire specialist TIP Group is heading back to Road Transport Expo this summer to showcase its extensive product and services portfolio.

The company will be highlighting its trailer, truck and tanker rental, leasing and maintenance and repair services, and trailer refurbishment offering.

TIP will also be supporting operators with its electronic braking performance monitoring systems (EBPMS) solution, BrakePlus.

As part of the TIP Insight telematics suite, this allows operators to monitor brake performance as well as other functionalities, such as tyre pressure and refrigeration temperature monitoring.

A refurbished SDC tri-axle curtainside trailer will be on display to illustrate TIP’s refurbishment services.

This is an expanding area of the business for TIP, as operators look for alternatives to purchasing a brand new trailer.

TIP’s refurbishment services include replacement and/or upgrade of chassis parts and curtain repair or replacement to match a company’s branding or livery refresh. 

A new DAF tractor unit and electric curtainside rigid truck will also be on show as part of TIP’s hire services. 

Mike Furnival, managing director at TIP, said: “Following the success of last year’s show, we had no hesitation in signing up again for this year and we are very much looking forward to showcasing our expertise once again in trailer and truck hire and maintenance services.

"With a vast range of trailers and trucks available for hire across the UK and Ireland, our on-stand team will be available throughout the show for a chat regarding visitors’ needs when it comes to their trailer and truck fleet plans.

"In addition though, we’ll also put the spotlight on our growing trailer refurbishment capability to highlight just how transport operators can benefit from giving trailers a ‘second life’, and potentially supporting their sustainability goals in doing so.”

Complete with a tasty BBQ, TIP Group's stand Y10 will be located outside, alongside sister company TIP Tanker Services.

Road Transport Expo takes place from 4-6 June at NAEC Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. It is completely free to attend for visitors, so why not book your place today?!
