When they join the Junk It collection fleet, each Isuzu truck is given its own individual name that is taken from the Western Isles of Scotland, with the latest two Grafters being christened ‘Bute’ and ‘Iona’ respectively.
Commenting on the arrival of the new Isuzu Grafters, David Malcolm from Junk It said: “Part of our company strategy from day one has been to present a clean and professional image to our customers at all times, setting us apart as a business. We feel that the Isuzu Grafter trucks are a professional mobile advertisement for our business and by having them individually named, we find that even the customers now refer to the trucks by their Island name.”
All the Isuzu Grafter N35.125 collection trucks were supplied by local Isuzu truck dealer Motus Commercials in Glasgow, and feature dedicated purpose-designed collection bodies. Junk It anticipates that each new Grafter will be operational for at least 7 years.
Malcolm continued: “Back in 2016, we were having reliability issues with our incumbent trucks, and following a long conversion with Motus Commercials, who we found to be really knowledgeable and helpful, we took delivery of our very first Isuzu. Almost instantly, we realised that the Grafter was the right truck for our collection business and the rest is history.
“Not only did the Isuzus have a compact footprint, giving perfect access to customer’s narrow driveways, as well as impressive fuel consumption and payload, but also the drivers found that they were really easy to drive and very manoeuvrable within the busy, crowded roads around Glasgow and Edinburgh.
