Our regular spotlight on the mechanics that keep trailers on the road at TIP sees some ‘quickfire’ questions to mobile mechanic David from our Glasgow branch.

How did you begin working in the trailer industry?

I started off as a car mechanic and during this time I was introduced to trucks. From there, I got an apprenticeship with a company who specialised in trailers and have been in the industry ever since - about 19 years now!

What do you like about working for TIP Trailer Services?

I think the benefits are really good, especially the 26 days annual leave plus bank holidays! The guys I work with and the branch staff are also great, you can go to them for advice whenever you need it.

What’s your biggest work achievement?

Every day I feel proud of my work, especially when I get appreciation from the customer. Each day is different and brings with it new challenges.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to keep fit and go out walking. There are lots of beautiful places in Scotland to go for walks!
