Safety First: Ballards Removals Introduce New In-House Testing for Lorries

Ballards Removals lorry

To make sure our lorries are always well maintained and suitable for your removal, storage, haulage or van hire needs, we’ve employed a new strategy of in-house brake testing.

With Totalkare extension ramps and mobile brake testers, we ensure high levels of efficiency and accuracy when checking our lorries’ brakes, to make sure our vehicles are roadworthy and safe. 

What does this latest development mean for how we do business?

With safety being a top priority, all our lorries are tried and tested regularly to ensure they’re properly maintained, in fact, the Operator Compliance Risk Score (OCRS) allocated our fleet of vehicles a Green status.

Now we’ve decided to take this even further, as in-house testing means our drivers can complete brake tests from their seats – saving time and fuel as they don’t need to leave the vehicle or make frequent trips to the test centre.

Safety, compliance, efficiency is at the heart of our business. This addition to our in-house resource significantly reduces our reliance on outside organisations and enables us to perform loaded brake tests at a time to suit us.
