Simply miles ahead

At Thompsons, we go further. Much further. Which is just as well, because when it comes to Highways vehicles the range of individual vehicle applications is enormous.

Renewing road surfaces, trenching, widening pavements, replacing barriers, erecting signage, installing new street lighting and emergency incident response all come under the remit of Highways trucks.

The combined Thompsons / Charlton product range delivers practical, professional, easy to use solutions to address all these requirements. From a simple dropside 7.5 tonner to a highly bespoke Incident Response Vehicle, we really do have bodies for everything.

And then there is a whole raft of bespoke options, with Thompsons usually pioneering their best configuration, fit and finish. Think particularly of insulation, removable internal dividers, 3 Way tipping, various sheeting options, lightweight spring assisted dropsides, tail-lifts, storage lockers, wacker carriers, cameras, extra lighting and added safety equipment.

And not forgetting Patchmaster, the smallest product in our range. A low cost 3500kgs hotbox asphalt trailer, Patchmaster is purpose – designed for filling in potholes and minor road repairs.
