Transport

We operate a fleet of over thirty vans and four articulated lorries.

With a single vehicle, we have the capacity to haul up to 68 t at a time. We also operate a number of escort vehicles for use when transporting especially long or wide loads nationwide.

We operate over forty trailers, including 13.5m tri-axle flatbed trailers and extendable trailers up to 22m for transportation of structural steelwork, For transportation of our plant equipment, we have several low loader trailers, as well as a super low loader with curtained side for even larger loads and equipment.

Eco-friendlyEco | J & D Pierce

Our entire J & D Pierce fleet use EURO 6 emission standard engines. This helps lower emissions and therefore reduces the environmental impact of our vehicles.

 

Plant

MEWPs

We have twenty-two mobile elevated working platforms (MEWPs) in our fleet. Ranging from 45 feet to 90 feet. our MEWPs are all-terrain ready and can be utilised in the most challenging of environments – with a variety of both straight boom and Z-boom models allowing our operatives to work efficiently in extremely tight surroundings.

All of our equipment is fitted with INFOBRIC – a management and access control system. This ensures only trained and certified operatives who have been pre-authorised by J & D Pierce can access and operate our MEWPs.

Mobile Cranes

We have a fleet of eight Grove all-terrain mobile cranes that range from 50 t to 130 t capability. These allow us to carry out the majority of lifting operations without the need to hire cranes.

Telehandlers

Our fleet includes several all-terrain telehandlers. The variety of models allow us to have a maximum lift height of 32 ft, maximum react of 19 ft, as well 360° degree lift capability.

Garage

Our J & D Pierce in-house Garage is fully staffed at our HQ in Glengarnock.

Our staff, which include mechanics and bodyshop paint specialists, ensure all our vehicles and plant equipment throughout the UK are maintained to the highest standard.
