Ecomotive in 2021: New covered trailer!

A new covered car trailer arrives at Ecomotive
Ecomotive Logistics has taken delivery of its own this week, with a brand new two-car covered trailer to add to its ever-growing fleet.
The trailer is covered and will protect whatever it is transporting from the elements. It also has a capacity of a massive 2.4 tonnes, which we recently tested out in order to transport our first car deliveries - a stunning Porsche 997 GT3RS and a then a Ferrari 575 Maranello. Both cars arrived safely and in style.
As you can see from the photos, it’s a stunner and it’s full functional in order to transport full-size vehicles. In all, we have purchased five new tow vehicles since March 2020, with another five on order; totalling 10 trailers set to be delivered throughout the year. Currently, we have 23, but this number will increase to around 40 over the next 18 months.
We now have one of the largest single car transporter fleets in the UK, with trained drivers; for both handovers and customer facing, as well as driving. This means we can provide a service that a lot of others can’t, such as competitors offering purely a trade plate service. We still offer trade plate transportation; with a current total of 90 - a figure that is set to increase to 120 by the end of 2021. All of which are supported by planning and administration teams at our large premises in Blaby, Leicester.
This recent acquisition further fuels our growth strategies and efforts.
In response to the new acquisition, managing director Tom Mallett says: “COVID-19 threw a spanner in the works for many a business, but we couldn’t be prouder of our entire team grabbing the bull by the horns and working hard to ensure that we continue to grow during such a challenging time. The new trailer is a fantastic addition to our fleet and we’re excited for the future growth opportunities that this will bring.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the progress we as a team have made during such a challenging time and I have every faith in the business and our people that we will continue to grow in a sustainable manner by continuing to offer industry leading service levels together with competitive prices for years to come.”
