UK rental company Upward Powered Access, a member of the UK’s Access Alliance, has taken delivery of a DAF CF 8x2 chassis fitted with a Sterling GP beavertail body.
The Sterling body offers a higher load capacity and easier loading and can be used to transport the aerial work platforms from small scissors such as the 19ft Skyjack 3219 up to big boom lifts such as the 80ft Genie S-80 and JLG 800S.
Upward Powered Access company manager Andy Bradberry said: “We were just about to place an order for a 32 tonne truck with another supplier when Grant called in to see us. We told him what we required and within two days he had all the quotes we wanted so for the first time we placed the order with Sterling. They gave us a date the truck would arrive and to their word it arrived on that day. Full handover was done by Sterling and DAF, the truck was bang on the spec we wanted and we’re very pleased with what we received!”
Sterling GP sales executive Grant Owen added: “This project is another example of the synergy achieved from the Sterling and Access Alliance collaboration. Feedback and input from the Alliance members such as Upward Powered Access enable our team here at Sterling GP to continually improve the product, specifically for companies transporting access machinery. It was an absolute pleasure working with Andy and I look forward to working with him again soon!”
