Here at Ability Handling, we always aim to make the period between ordering and delivery as short as possible but when demand is high and machines are being built to order this time can stretch into several months. However, as one leading building materials supplier recently discovered, sometimes the best things are well worth waiting for…
Combilift products are always in high demand. This is because the company has proven over and over again that it can produce reliable, innovative materials handling solutions that have a versatility unmatched in other models. Demand has been particularly high recently and that means all of our expert staff have been working hard to keep customers' operations moving.
Some time ago, a leading building materials supplier got in touch with Ability Handling to discuss which of our products would best suit his changing requirements. The company already hire a fleet of electric counterbalance trucks from the Doosan range, also supplied by Ability Handling, and so we recommended a new electric Combilift CB2500 to complement their existing machines.
Due to the high demand for Combilift products at present, the CB2500 spent 16 weeks on the production line but the building materials supplier was not left facing any downtime; we supplied a short-term hire truck for the interim period and worked out a highly competitive rental deal.
The CB2500 Combilift has now been delivered to the customer and is providing versatile, reliable service as part of their existing fleet. Phil, the depot manager, is very pleased with the new machine and added that it made sense to choose Ability Handling as the supplier, given that Ability have been Combilift dealers for more than 15 years.
