Forming the centrepiece of TIP’s recent open day event was the brand new ‘Polar-Bur’ temperature-controlled lifting deck trailer from manufacturer Don-Bur, which made its full UK and European debut at TIP’s 2-day event held recently at Stoke City FC.
Featuring one of the latest state-of-the-art Thermo King Advancer A500 refrigeration systems supplied by Marshall Fleet Solutions, the Polar-Bur trailer on display was the first of two of these brand new trailer designs that are being supplied by TIP Trailer Services to its customers.
Alongside the debutant Polar-Bur trailer, were two other Don-Bur trailers including a 13.7 m teardrop curtainsider and a 13.6m fixed deck box trailer.
Also on display at the TIP Open Day were a selection of new trailer designs from other long-term trailer suppliers to TIP, including two trailers from SDC and a concept longer length Link trailer from Dennison Trailers, designed specifically for the UK market.
Completing the TIP Open Day lineup were two electric vehicles, at 3.1 tonne and 16 tonne, from Renault’s ZE electric distribution range that are currently available for hire or lease through TIP company GrayRentals in Hull, as well as one of the latest fully kitted out mobile service units that form part of TIP’s 100 strong fleet of support vehicles around the UK.
“Being able to host the launch of the first temperature-controlled lifting deck trailer from Don-Bur was a significant coup for us and reflects the long-term relationship that we have with the trailer manufacturer. Looking at the comprehensive display of both trailers and vehicles from all the manufacturers exhibiting at the Bet365 Stadium, meant that the visitors to our open days were treated to an excellent selection of trailers that showcased some of the latest industry technology,” said Mike Furnival, managing director UK&I, TIP Trailer Services.
