Tippers ‘R’ Us? Yes, but only with a Thompsons Loadmaster body!

Latest News | 25th Jan

Based at Kesgrave just outside Ipswich, TIPPERS ‘R’ US is now one of the UK’s most dynamic and far – sighted tipper operators, with the firm currently investing huge sums in its expanding its whole portfolio of premises, trucks, plant equipment, products and services.

The first part of an order for up to 50 new tippers over two years, 15 MAN 8×4 tippers have just joined the TIPPERS ‘R’ US fleet, each featuring a Thompsons all-steel Loadmaster Lite body. Two of the trucks are the lighter and lower 32.400 MAN chassis with single reduction axles, the remainder being the heavier duty 35.400 model with beefier suspension, higher ground clearance and a hub reduction back end.

“Either way, the body is always a Loadmaster Lite” says TIPPERS ‘R’ US owner Guy Nicholls. “Quite simply, Thompsons bodies are the best there are. Over the years, I’ve bought many, many examples for this and other tipping businesses, and each time the Loadmasters have proved again and again that they are more than up to any task we put them too.”

With a payload capacity of around 18,800kgs, the MAN / Loadmaster Lite combination offers an ideal compromise between strength and durability on one hand and versatility and productivity on the other.

“Reliability is really our Number One consideration” adds TIPPERS ‘R’ US transport manager Andy Davey. “Put simply, if a truck doesn’t go out for a day, its payload potential is precisely zero – and we will have probably let a customer down as well. For this reason above all others, we stick with the Loadmaster.”

With such a highly memorable trading name, TIPPERS ‘R’ US pays particular attention to its branding and vehicle livery; “clean, simple and smart” is the image that Guy Nicholls wants to portray. Turned out with a high contrast white cab / black body combination along with polished aluminium wheels and highly visible graphics, the result is a thoroughly professional presentation as to how a modern tipper operator should look in the public eye.

The Loadmaster body contributes to this upmarket image as well.

“With its trademark horizontal crease line running the length of its body, Loadmaster has always looked a really ‘up to the minute’ design” says Guy Nicholls, adding “it’s also a body that’s simplicity itself to look after and keep clean.”

TIPPERS ‘R’ US is a sister activity to TRUCKS ‘R’ US which provides short and long term hire for vans, plant equipment and specialist trucks around South East England. The new tippers are also available for self drive hire from TRUCKS ‘R’ US RENTAL.
