MRB run a fleet of 21 trucks the majority of which are DAFs. A variety of trailers including air conditioned, refrigerated, flat bed and low loader are used to transport a wide range of loads. Recent business has included pontoon steel sections, scaffolding, tractors and excessive size plant machinery. No job is too big or too difficult for MRB.
Wayne deals with Adams Morey in Portsmouth and is very supportive in his views about the staff there. Wayne comments: “We love the DAFs and the back-up we receive from Adams Morey is first class. They have some brilliant people working for them, for example Freddie on the service desk has an encyclopaedic knowledge of everything DAF. Adams Morey have a flexible approach and dealing with people face to face is very important.
“We have recently had a complete revision of our parts stock through Hein Makkink, our Adams Morey Parts Representative. He reviewed our history of parts ordering and we now have a better racking system with labelled stock which is checked regularly and we have a parts van delivery 3 times per day if needed. Hein sorts out our specific parts needs and will source oils, consumables, fittings, tools etc. Not having redundant stock and running a rapid replacement of parts that we use has helped our technicians no end, and leads to efficiencies and a reduction on parts operation costs.”
Adams Morey provide MRB Transport with a range of services including sale of DAF trucks, additional servicing and MOT requirements and parts supply. The close association between the two companies is clearly of great benefit to both.
