Expert knowledge gives competitive edge
"Our core business has changed considerably since we began as a truck dealership in 1959 - and ATS Euromaster has supported us every step of the way.
Our contract with ATS Euromaster goes above and beyond basic tyre supply and fitment - we are able to use many of the company's services to benefit our customers. The 24/7 rapid-response breakdown service, for instance, is extended to any operator hiring one of our trailers, regardless of location. Even hauliers operating abroad are covered by the continental Euromaster breakdown network.
This is a fantastic additional service we can pass on to our customers, and the added level of support has kept first-time users coming back. Extra benefits like this have seen ATS Euromaster help take our business from strength to strength, and the partnership has evolved to become a cornerstone of our success."
