Pip’s Skips takes two skip loaders from Ford & Slater
For the past 25 years Pip’s Skips has offered skip hire and waste recycling solutions to customers throughout East Anglia. As part of their dedication to providing a first-class service Pip’s recently took delivery of two fully liveried skip loaders from Ford & Slater Norwich, purchased through the DAF Skip, Tip, Hook and Grab programme.
Pip’s Skips Company Manager, James Hyde, has worked with Ford & Slater for over three years and shares a strong business relationship with our Norwich dealership, so when it was time to replenish the fleet James, approached us for a solution.
James Hyde explains, “We needed to replace a couple of older vehicles, and with our business continuously growing we needed quality vehicles, quickly. We have a fantastic relationship with Ford & Slater and have been successfully running DAFs for a few years now - it made sense for us to continue that.”
The Skip, Tip, Hook and Grab programme was created as a way for DAF customers to purchase readily bodied vehicles prebuilt for sale. The two DAF LF skip loaders come complete with a full skip loading body and standard interior and exterior features. By having ready-made vehicles available for purchase, DAF dealerships can provide customers with a quick turnaround on quality vehicles, meaning less downtime for fleet operators and drivers.
This is the second time that Pip’s Skips has used the DAF Skip, Tip Hook and Grab programme, of which James Hyde is a huge advocate. “To get a truck from scratch can be very expensive and is a much longer process. The Tip and Skip programme ensures we are never short on vehicles, improves the efficiency of our business and makes it easier to run a smooth operation.”
The two DAF LF skip loader trucks are now in service providing skip hire solutions for customers in Norfolk, Norwich and the surrounding areas.
