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

whole site.

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.
