Onestop Roofing Crane Mounted Solution

We welcome Onestop Roofing Supplies to our very own one-stop solution and ask why the company decided on Alltruck rental for their latest crane mounted truck.
In January of this year, Natalie O'Neill contacted us looking to source a new rear-mounted crane truck. The Operations Director at roofing supplies specialist Onestop Roofing was referred to us by Onestop Access, a sister company in the Onestop Group. Natalie was looking for a new truck supplier due to severe service issues with her current leasing company. As Natalie mentioned to Martin Shaw, our Managing Director " If our trucks aren't out delivering, they're not earning money for our business." A not too uncommon complaint when service levels drop and frustratingly so; impacting on your business, customers, and bottom line.

Natalie isn't new to managing transport, operating a mixed fleet of vans, curtain-siders and cranes for over 20 years, she understands the importance of operating a reliable fleet. The vehicle which was causing the most headaches and downtime due to inspections and repairs was a Mercedes 26-tonne fitted with an Atlas crane. On lease from an asset finance company and due for renewal in July, the Mercedes was serviced and supported by the local dealership. Dealing directly with the leasing company, Natalie was so frustrated by the layers of communication required to get anything actioned and also the extended lead-times to have routine work carried out on either the truck or crane.

For those that already partner with Alltruck, they will know that having a single point of contact is core to our customer rental experience. We understand the importance of clear, concise communication and the benefits of having quick responses to situations. A point that Martin was quick to highlight to Natalie when she contacted us.

" With multiple aspects to managing heavy-vehicles - covering the likes of mechanics, hydraulics, electrics, ancillary equipment, tyres, maintenance and importantly compliance - you can understand that having one point of contact to manage the entire process is a massive benefit to operators. Hanging on a telephone to a centralised call-centre to get authorisation on a tyre replacement or waiting days to hear back on when a LOLER test can be booked-in, has an impact on your time-management. If issues are not managed effectively, it will create a knock-on effect across your entire business."

"As a smaller-more focused contract hire company, we take care of everything for our customers. Alltruck has deliberately invested in our maintenance infrastructure and mobile support fleet. It is our people who attend a breakdown or provides you with routine inspections— all managed by your experienced dedicated account manager. In doing so, we gain a much more personal understanding of your business and how we can support you better, resulting in improved customer experience. "

When asked what made the Onestop management decide on Alltruck, Natalie O'Neill Said:

“ After years of dealing with the same national leasing company, the more personal and direct approach as described and demonstrated by Martin Shaw was the main reason that influenced our decision to choose Alltruck for our next crane mounted truck. Combined with the flexibility of the contract hire agreement and the visible presence of the FASSI crane across central Scotland, a crane that we were not familiar with, but could see other merchants operating. It made sense for us to deal with a company that demonstrated that they understood our needs as a merchant in the building trade and as a heavy goods operator. We are delighted with the new vehicle and the communication from the entire Alltruck team has been excellent to date.”
