All our bodies can be specified with a wide range of options. These include:



As options to the traditional manually secured locking bar, we offer both an in-cab automated locking / unlocking tailgate as well as a lifting, hydraulically operated system. Each speeds up the tipping operation, whilst also allowing the driver to stay seated in the cab.


Tipping Gears

A wide range of tipping gears is available from all the leading suppliers, including front end, underfloor or 3-Way designs. Each is supplied as being the most appropriate to individual tipper applications and individual customer preferences.



Tipper grabs are now highly popular, and a key element of our sales volumes. Thompsons and Charlton each supply and fit a wide range of crane models, all of which are fully tested and delivered to the customer as part of a finished vehicle that’s immediately ready for work.

Additional Safety Specifications

Customers may request us to deliver their vehicles in a specification that conforms to or even exceeds any stated operating standard such as stipulated by Crossrail, CLOCS, TfL and FORS. Whilst many vehicle requirements are now part of the Law, Thompsons will always work with customers to achieve the highest possible level of tipper safety.
