Safari Park go wild for Linde Approved truck
Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park is quoted to be the wildest day out in
Scotland with everything from the Wild Animal Reserve, Sea Lion shows to Pedal Boats
and bug land walks.
Since opening in 1970, the park, which is the only Safari Park in Scotland, has proved
extremely sucessful with approximately 400,000 visitors a year. A result of this
success has led the safari park to purchase an Approved Linde Used fork lift truck to
assist with loading and unloading of food and drink for their café.
The H25T gas powered counterbalance truck is used primarily for lorry loading and
unloading, but since delivery, has also been used for various applications across the
Scott Meiklejohn at Blair Drummond Safari Park commented, "We chose a Linde truck
because we were looking for a reliable, well maintained truck that had a good service
history. Having looked on various internet sites we asked our main food supplier 3663
for advice and they recommended we contact Linde. After a couple of phone calls the
Area Sales Manager came to the park and discussed our needs and budget. The main
attraction to buying Linde was not only a strong recommendation but the assurance
that Linde has a good after sales service to ensure the truck has as short a down time
as possible if there were any problems, to which, to date, there have been none. I
believe we made the right choice in buying a Linde Approved Used Truck."
Linde Approved Used trucks offer an excellent cost effective alternative to the
investment in a new model. Typically ex-contract hire, all Linde Approved trucks have
been maintained from new by Linde's national network companies and their 23 fully
equipped support centres nationwide. Linde Approved trucks are prepared to three
levels which are designed to suit individual budgets and applications. Only genuine
Linde parts are fitted during the refurbishment process and LOLER/PUWER certification
is provided with every machine.
