‘Bute’ and ‘Iona’ sail effortlessly into Junk It’s 100% Isuzu fleet
In just four years since they acquired their first Isuzu, Scottish house clearance company ‘Junk It’ is now 100% Isuzu with their fleet of collection vehicles. In 2020 Junk It added two more new Isuzu Grafter 3.5 ton rigids. A third Grafter is to be delivered this month.
When they join the Junk It collection fleet, each Isuzu truck gets its own name, borrowed from the Western Isles of Scotland. The last two grafters are called “Bute” and “Iona”.
Commenting on the arrival of the new Isuzu Grafters, David Malcolm from Junk said: “From day one, part of our corporate strategy has been to present our customers with a clean and professional image at all times and to make us stand out as a company. We are of the opinion that the Isuzu Grafter trucks are a professional mobile advertisement for our company. If we name them individually, we find that even customers now use their island names to refer to the trucks. “
All Isuzu Grafter N35.125 collection vehicles at Junk It was delivered by the local Isuzu truck dealer Motus Commercials in Glasgow and has specially designed and very distinctive collection points that provide discreet personal service to customers. Junk It is expected that each new grafter will be in service for at least 7 years.
“In 2016 we had problems with the reliability of our established trucks. After a long conversion to Motus Commercials, which we found very competent and helpful, we received our first Isuzu. Almost immediately we realized that the Grafter was the right truck for our collection business and the rest was history, ”said David Malcolm.
David continues, “Not only did the Isuzus have a compact footprint that allowed perfect access to narrow customer driveways, as well as impressive fuel economy and payload, but drivers found it very easy to drive and in busy traffic were very agile. crowded streets around the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. “
Junk is an environmentally conscious, professional, SEPA registered waste and garbage disposal company serving both residential and business customers in central Scotland. It was founded in 2006 by David Malcolm with an emphasis on customer service, a strong, clean image and fully trained and uniformed drivers. Originally based in Glasgow, the company opened a second office within four years, operating out of Edinburgh.
“The garbage and garbage collection industry is certainly one of the toughest work environments, but this is where the Isuzu Grafter thrives because of its practical design and robust build quality. Junk It works hard on their grafters and as they have learned over the past four years the grafter has proven to be perfectly fit for purpose, ”said Bob Doherty, Network Business Manager at Isuzu Truck UK.
