New JCB deal for Rudridge

Published:  26 January, 2015

Farnham-based Rudridge has announced that it has taken delivery of four new JCB TLT30D 4x4 Teletruck Forklifts.

Re-investing in these JCB teletrucks, which cost in the region of £32,000 each, will continue to bring many advantages to Rudridge and its customers due to their quality features such as a telescopic reach which enables faster, single-side unloading.

The Farnham branch of Rudridge has extremely high stock levels and these teletrucks enable them to maximise all available space to its full potential, which in return means that in this busy branch its customers are served with speed and efficiency and that their own delivery vehicles are not held up in the branch between loads, increasing vehicle efficiency.

Eddie Rourke, Rudridge group logistics manager, cannot sing the praises of the JCB Forklifts enough. He said: “We have used JCB Teletrucks for 10 years now in our branches and I’ll never have another ordinary counterbalanced truck again. These teletrucks are twice as fast and with single side loading you save all that space in the yard.

“If a 40 foot artic arrives, it isn’t necessary to put it in to the middle of the yard, causing the yard to become blocked. It can be parked to one side of the yard and be unloaded from a single side only. The driver also doesn’t need to open both curtains so time is saved there too.”

Darren Price, Rudridge business development manager, added: “Taking delivery of these four new JCB Teletrucks will mean that our Farnham branch can continue to operate with increased efficiency. The JCB brand offers fantastic reliability and combined with their excellent service and maintenance contract, we view this as a long-term relationship between Rudridge and JCB and look forward to growing this relationship in the years to come.”
