The witching hour is upon us, some of you will be out there, curtains pulled and can you hear that??…..a slight scratching noise???…..it could be one of the afterlife about to pay you a visit in your dark lay-by……. or it’s some git trying to nick your diesel!
If anyone can get an appropriate load for the week of witches, ghosts and ghouls then top international express haulier Steve Marsh is the MAN who can. If I was Steve I think I’d be glad that the night out at Brugge Crematorium was Saturday night and not tonight being Halloween.
Yep you heard right, a night out outside Brugge Crematorium. I have to say it probably wasn’t Steve’s ideal place for a quiet Saturday night but when you have a crane booked to tip you at 7am then you don’t really have much choice I guess. If you need a job doing then Marshy is the man, we all that by now. Load Friday afternoon in Leeds and be in Brugge Saturday ready for a 7am tip Sunday morning. Having parked up outside ready for the morning I think Marshy was only to pleased to have the street light to park under, you never know you know. Life after death, things that go bumps in the night or is that only Waberers??! Any way make sure you sleep safe this evening and if you have any paranormal activity tonight away from the normal paranormal activity in the motorway services then I’d be keen to hear your tales. Sleep well bloggers…..
Do you drive a low height tractor unit??
There seems to be more than ever about at the moment. I want to do a Lowrider Friday tomorrow so get sending over your photos please. You can get me on all the normal channels, Facebook, Twitter, Instagramme or good old fashioned email! Come on LowRiders let’s see your trucks, I’m guessing most will be 4×2’s but extra points for 6×2’s!
If you haven’t worked out yet that the best trucks on the road have 6 stud wheels and a space/sky cab then I’m not sure you’ve been reading the blog long enough! 😉
Since I had my little MAN back in 1999, I’ve loved little trucks with big cabs, not just standard sleepers. Most are engaged on interesting and or long distance work and like mine used too, often clock up as miles as their bigger brothers and sisters. I have now started a new Facebook group called #littlebigcabclub purely for the big cab versions. Manufacturers offer big cab sleepers such as Iveco, Mercedes-Benz or MAN Straight from the factory, the rest need one of the many aftermarket options from UK or European suppliers such as Hatcher Components, KUDA, Spojkar or PONY.
This delightful little MAN TGL 12.180 LX belongs to FCL Event Logistics Ltd. It’s been so busy since it’s arrival it’s running undercover as there hasn’t been time to get it sign written. She’s been loading next to my work so I had to pop round and have a look. Partly for curiosity as I still want to buy another one myself and also because I wanted to see the rearranged interior with a proper “big truck” under bunk fridge. I want one. I spoke to Phil the driver and he loves the truck, it just so happens I messaged FCL and they were happy to tell me a little more and also allow a TB sticker on the back end. I’m honoured, thank you FCL! #tbonthemove
Here’s what FCL had to say;
“Hello, she is one of our growing fleet, we have 18 trucks with various sizes from 7.5 ton trucks to 45 ft Mega trailers. We supply trucks for events all over the UK and Europe. The 12 tonner which you have seen is new to our fleet and therefore doesn’t have a private plate and is not sign written yet. She will travel throughout the UK and Europe delivering Audio visual and lighting to corporate events or exhibitions. It will also go to festivals and arenas plus private events etc.
We would be more than happy to have a TB sticker on her. Many thanks”
