Removal Body Trucks For Sale

Removal body trucks are built to allow a wide range of items found in domestic and commercial buildings to be transported efficiently across the country as individuals or businesses move premises. And as such, they are equipped with features and functions that are not found on standard lorries, making them ideal for the removal industry.

Access to the load space of a removal body truck is important, because this dictates how quickly and easily it can be loaded and unloaded. This means it is worth looking out for used models which at the very least have dropwells or ramps at the rear so that heavy furniture and boxes can be carried to and from it without much effort. A number of modern body designs are built to accommodate side access as well as barn doors at the rear, which can help when it comes to arranging loads and accessing certain items once the truck has reached its destination. Some removal bodies will even be divided into multiple containers with alloy side tables, further enhancing the abilities of the truck and giving the operators more options when it comes to loading.

Removal Trucks for saleThe quality and state of the removal body and the ancillary components should be checked when considering a second-hand model. Alloy ramps are light and relatively durable, but regular use can leave them in need of repair or replacement. The same goes for side panels, internal fastenings, netting and any other structural elements. Internal tie rails may be present to improve stability and reduce the likelihood of precious cargo being damaged, so inspect the interior of the body thoroughly where possible. A full service history and up-to-date MOT is also desirable, with many sellers willing to provide pre-sale servicing and other assurances.

Do you need a Sleeper Cab or Pod?

Removal body trucks can feature spacious and modern cabs up front, and sleeper models designed for two or even three occupants might be appropriate for certain commercial operations, especially when very long distances will be covered and continental deployment may be on the cards. Features such as air conditioning, cruise control and electric windows and mirrors will help make the cab a more comfortable place to spend a few days on the road. Security features such as an immobiliser may also be desirable, especially if the truck is a recent and expensive addition to the fleet that needs to be retained to recoup the initial investment.

Some removal body trucks will have been custom-built to the requirements of a previous owner, while others can be adapted to accommodate whatever set-up a buyer requires. Any secondary work which has been carried out should be noted and examined to ensure it is of a satisfactory quality. Buying second-hand may mean that you need to get the livery of a former commercial operator removed from the sides, doors and other elements. And because of the nature of the work that this type of vehicle will be doing, air suspension all round, or at the very least on the rear axle, will be common.
