Tail-lift Fix Saves the Day

Freightshield recently received an urgent call from a customer, DAC Removals, who was stuck with a broken tail-lift. The emergency response team was immediately called into play and was able to fix the problem in time for the customer to continue the job with minimal delay.


DAC Removal’s Quotation and Operations Manager writes

“I would just like to thank the team at Freightshield for fixing my tail-lift on 17.09.14. My call was answered immediately and dealt with professionally.

Freightshield Awarded COP Clearance (13/11/12

vca_logo_lrgWe are pleased to announce that we have now been accredited COP (conformity of production) clearance in readiness for EWVTA (European whole vehicle type approval)

All body builders are facing new challenges from technology that is being driven by environmental legislation and inparticular EC and National Whole Vehicle Type Approval. European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (EWVTA) has become necessary because of the impact that vehicles have upon society.

It is based around EC Directives and provides for the approval of whole vehicles, in addition to vehicle systems, and seperate components. A prototype is tested and if it passes the tests and the production arrangements also pass inspection, then vehicles or components of the same type are approved for production and sale within Europe, without further testing.
