UK hire fleet, T.O.M Vehicle Rentals, has taken delivery of 20 fixed-roof curtain-sider trailers built by Schmitz Cargobull.
Manufactured at Altenberge in Germany, the trailers are specifically designed for the UK and Irish markets and feature an aluminium front bulkhead with galvanised steel front and rear corner posts. They also mark T.O.M's first dry freight van purchase.
This is the second time in six months that Schmitz Cargobull has contributed to T.O.M Vehicle Rentals, following a first purchase of 31 reefers in November 2013.
Since 2010, T.O.M Vehicle Rentals fleet has grown at a rate of 400 per cent and now operates over 6,000 vehicles.
The rental firm’s trailer business currently stands at more than 500 units following the acquisition of Radmode’s fleet, a UK hire company that has now ceased trading.
