Tip-Ex/Tank-Ex 2019 – what a show!

Spread over 3 days, we found our stand to barely have a quiet moment! Mixed amongst industry-leading manufacturers and body-builders, our stand (A14) was well positioned next to some of the companies we work with already so closely.

It proved to be the perfect opportunity for us to discuss our relationship with the manufacturers we have formed strategic partnerships with to benefit our clients. These include Brigade Electronics, Sortimo, Rhino Products and ECCO Safety. You will have seen both the vehicles we had on our stand had a plethora of their equipment installed onto them, with a few systems we have developed ourselves through research and development we’ve carried out over the last 19 years we’ve been in operation.

As well as the Brigade safety equipment we had installed onto the Scania Skip Lorry we’d also installed our HALO Cycle Minder system and our latest driver warning system – BSM (Blind Spot Monitoring). Positioned in the casing of the nearside mirror, we wire it in to work with the side scan sensors also installed onto the vehicle to provide a visual warning to the driver on top of any other equipment installed onto the vehicle at the time!

We are currently in the process of looking through all the notes we took from the show with regards to who we spoke to about what. If you are on this list, then someone will be in touch with you shortly if they haven’t already made contact.

If you missed the opportunity to speak with one of our specialists at the show then find out who you need to speak to from the list below based on where you and your business are based in the UK:

Following on from the show, this month we will be talking about our Finance options should you require safety equipment, but feel like it is out of reach when paid for in a bulk amount.

Last year we formed a relationship with a finance provider to allow improving your fleet safety easier and more achievable from a financial perspective for you. The typical lifetime of vehicles you have (depending on the industry you operate in, and vehicle type) can be anything up to and over 5+ years. By financing the cost of improving your vehicle’s safety, whether it is one vehicle or your whole fleet, we can do so in a way which won’t break the bank!

The majority of the equipment we had installed onto our 2 vehicles at this year’s TipEx show can be installed and settled for through our Financing options. These packages are available from as little as 93p per day (on a 5 year payment plan) and have been pulled together to address the current issues facing the industry. But, what other packages are available?

  • FORS Silver Standard Safety System – 93p/day
  • 4 camera system with Hard Drive – £1.18/day
  • FORS Gold Standard Safety System – £1.64/day
  • HS2 Specification – £1.68/day

Keep an eye out for what safety kit we will install for these prices through our social media channels, and also make sure you’re on our mailing list! To speak to one of our specialists around what we can help you with and how much it would cost on a similar system like the above, call one of our team now on 0845 388 3816 or email ‘enquiries@smfleet.co.uk.
