Reliability Behind The Curtains

The curtain-side truck is a rockstar in the transportation world. 

With its design, which is both unique and practical, you can access the cargo space with ease and transport loads seamlessly. Just unbuckle a part of the curtain from whichever side you want, and access the load.

There’s a tail lift option to facilitate loading and unloading, making your job even easier.

Keep in mind you need at least C1 entitlement to operate a 7.5t lorry.

Things That Make 7.5-Tonne Curtain Side Lorry Stand Out

There are many great reasons why so many businesses opt for the curtain-side lorry with a tail lift.

  • Curtain-side design – This unique feature makes the truck more accessible. You can easily move the curtains on the side of this truck for quick and easy access to cargo.
  • Size and payload capacity – The vehicle is large enough to carry a significant load, yet it remains compact enough to navigate city roads without problems.
  • Versatility – Due to the curtain sides and large cargo capacity, this vehicle can be used to transport a wide range of goods by companies across various industries.
