Nottinghamshire-based Midland Skip Hire has ended a relationship with a regional tyre supplier that dates back to its inception in 2002, appointing ATS Euromaster to supply, fit and service tyres across its 62-strong fleet.
In addition to routine tyre replacement, ATS Euromaster will provide monthly fleet inspections and rapid-response breakdown assistance across the waste disposal and skip hire company’s 37 trucks, eight trailers and five vans. The on-road fleet, plus 12 telescopic handlers used onsite for waste transfer, will be supported by the nationwide tyre specialist’s 1,000-strong mobile service fleet – the UK’s largest.
Midland Skip Hire’s Director Craig Currie explains the move was triggered when ATS Euromaster delivered occasional tyre services for the firm, which he says exceeded the previous supplier’s performance.
Currie cites the efficiency, attention to detail and organisation of the provider’s technicians as his reasons for the switch, saying: “We have been hugely impressed by ATS Euromaster’s efficiency and precision. It has led to a considerable reduction in fleet downtime, on top of which they have introduced a renewed clarity to our tyre management system.”
This clarity is highlighted in monthly invoices, which itemise costs for each service received, and the detailed written report provided following fleet inspections. This lists any service work undertaken, from wheel alignments and balancing, to twinning, turning on the rim, tyre regrooving, replacements and repairs.
“This is a level of administrative support we have not been used to with our previous supplier,” says Currie. “It makes budget management a lot easier.”
Another key benefit available to Midland Skip Hire is ATS Euromaster’s nationwide 24/7 rapid response service for tyre-related breakdowns at the roadside. This is particularly advantageous given the firm is gradually increasing its focus on national waste transportation and exportation to match its traditional local services.
Midland Skip Hire, based in Bottesford, provides waste removal and skip hire services to customers in and around Nottingham, Newark, Lincoln, Grantham and Melton. The company has more than 1,700 skips for hire, ranging from 3 to 40 cubic yards.
