ABOUT

Prime Mover Trucks

Does your business need to transport a large number of products over long distances? Does your business rely on road transport? Do you run your own fleet?

If you have bulky goods with places to go, if you need to continually meet the growing demand in long-distance and heavy-duty distribution haulage then prime movers are a cost-effective freight option for your business.

If you need to quickly add vehicles to your fleet or to fill a gap when your current vehicles are off-road for a period, then renting a prime mover allows you to fill that gap and keep your business trading. Our fleet has enhanced efficiency, unique comfort and exemplary reliability.

FREQUENTLY ASKED

Questions

Can I tow anything with a prime mover? Do I need to know what the truck can haul?
A truck’s payload capacity is the sum of its curb weight and all the cargo weight that can be safely carried by your truck. This information is usually calculated by the truck manufacturer and noted in the vehicle’s manual. As a truck driver, it is imperative that you always check the load weight vis–vis the payload capacity of the type of truck. Do not exceed the truck’s payload capacity, especially on long drives. Before hiring the vehicle you should discuss this with our experienced staff.
What happens if the goods I’m transporting get damaged?

Yes. Vehicles are equipped with an electric standby refrigeration system so your goods will stay at the desired temperature.

What license do I need to drive a prime mover?

Vehicles up to 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM) can be driven/operated with a standard C-Class license. Anything larger will require an LR/MR and in some cases HR truck licenses to drive/operate.

Do I need to pay for the fuel I use?
All vehicles are supplied with a full tank of fuel. They must be returned with a full tank but if not, then there is a refuelling charge plus administration fee. These are explained to you and part of your agreement when hiring the vehicle.
What happens if the vehicle breaks down?
Whilst our fleet is maintained and serviced regularly to the highest standards, sometimes breakdowns will still occur. If so, our vehicles are covered by 24 hour emergency breakdown service. This covers issues such as flat batteries or engine troubles. The emergency contact number is provided in the vehicle.
