Ekeri rigid bodywork goes on show as five-year report gives top marks
Jason Williams Removals, the Carmarthenshire-based relocation and storage company has recently displayed its five-year-old Ekeri rigid vehicle at the All Wales Truck & Transport Show and such was the interest shown in the unique multi-access body work, that the company is lining up to exhibit at next year’s Ireland Truck Show.
Five years ago, owner Jason Williams declined the opportunity to purchase a conventional box body and instead opted for the Ekeri solution, owing to its potential for easier and more secure loading.
“It was a simple choice to make.” Says Jason. “The Ekeri body has six doors which open along the near-side and a tuckaway Zepro tail lift for loading through the rear tail flap. This combination, along with the internal load locking bars and multiple strapping points, make the vehicle far more flexible and easier to load than any ordinary removals lorry.”
Immaculate in the striking livery of Jason Williams Removals, the Ekeri body is not only eye-catching but according to Jason Williams, virtually sells itself to anyone in the removals business.
“You can do anything with it.” He continues, “Pallets, individual items, mixed loads, all have plenty of internal space and because of the locking bars and the solid construction, there’s no body flexing during transit. Certainly, the time and money which we have saved using this vehicle means we would not consider buying anything else. Quite simply, it sells itself!”
Savings have also been made on the service and maintenance side of things. Each time the Mercedes Benz Actros cab is serviced, the bodywork, doors and joints are checked over and says Jason, nothing has needed any attention in the five years it’s been on the road. “And believe me,” he adds, “this vehicle works hard.”
Jason Williams Removals provide a local and nationwide service for both residential and commercial moving and storage, which is backed by a full packing service and experienced handling team.
