Our Gravesend branch has five new additions!

If you live near one of our branches in Farnham, Gravesend, Brentford or Horsham, the chances are you've probably seen our fleet of vehicles out and about. Emblazoned with our distinctive yellow and black logo, alongside the names of some of the leading construction manufacturers we work with, we maintain a diverse range of vans and HGVs so no delivery is too big or too small.

Our strapline 'trust us to deliver' means you can rely on our ability to get the goods you need, when you need them, and if you order before 12 noon we usually guarantee next day delivery. But staying one step ahead involves investing in the highest specification vehicles.

With this in mind, our Gravesend store has just expanded its fleet. The latest additions include five top-of-the-range 32-tonne Mercedes-Benz Arocs Tridem 8x4 lorries. The grab loaders feature improved manoeuvrability meaning they are easier to handle in areas with restricted access, such as building sites, making them ideal for delivering heavy materials to challenging locations. Each lorry has a carrying capacity of 17 tonnes and a HIAB X HiDuo 188 B-2 remote control crane, specifically chosen to handle the more specialised civils materials supplied by us on a daily basis.

The lorries will operate alongside the branch's existing vehicles – a 7.5 tonne Mercedes Canter and a Citroen van, to cater for smaller loads.

Craig Lyons, our Branch Manager at Gravesend, commented:

"We are delighted with our new lorries. Their arrival means we will be able to provide a more extensive delivery service to our customers, fulfil more orders and meet additional next day delivery requests. The drivers are looking forward to getting behind the wheels and out on the road."

Operating a modern fleet means we're committed to consistently maintaining and upgrading our commercial vehicles and training our drivers to the highest standards. As the lifeblood of our organisation, we're proud of the fact our fleet holds the Gold Status award from The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS). This accreditation recognises our management standards including vehicles, drivers and general operations. So you can be assured we adhere to the latest safety and efficiency regulations.

've held the Gold Status award for three years now and will continue to work hard to maintain this position. Of course, our reputation for reliability wouldn't be possible without our marvellous team of delivery drivers. They're often the face of Rudridge, at the forefront of the business, delivering goods no matter what the weather or the traffic conditions. So next time you see them driving past, perhaps in a shiny new lorry, give them a nod.

To find out more about our delivery service, speak to an advisor at one of our branches, and we'll be happy to discuss your requirements and timescales.
