Serviceco set to launch truck and trailer maintenance brand

Sam-O'PreyA Northern Ireland company described as the ‘AA for trucks and trailers’ is set to launch its new service in Belfast later this week. Serviceco will provide a comprehensive maintenance and breakdown service for trucks and trailers across the UK and Ireland.

Serviceco aims to become recognised as the UK’s leading service and maintenance provider for trucks and trailers. Having already amassed more than 20 years’ experience keeping the transport industry moving (with the company already looking after 6,000 HGV assets across the UK) Serviceco is well placed to achieve its goals. Serviceco had been operating under the name of Certus in the past, however, after major investment and expansion of the customer profile, the company is now set for a rebrand and relaunch.

Management has been working exceptionally hard behind the scenes to secure various major deals worth 2m with the likes of Heatons and Wincanton.

General Manager Sam O’Prey spoke positively about the breadth of services provided by the company; “We offer tailor made packages to take responsibility for servicing, MOT’s, breakdown cover, repairs, tyre management and vehicle tracking. Our main operations are based initially within the UK and Ireland, with a view to globalising services in the future. We will be providing a bespoke service which will work for a range customers, from one vehicle owner operators, to blue chip national accounts.”

Serviceco operate a 24/7 call centre (in Belfast) and guarantee a 60 minute breakdown response time across the UK and 90 minute breakdown response time across Europe. Serviceco is part of the Hireco group which is now regarded as the UK’s leading truck and trailer rental service.

Sam O’Prey went on to describe the sheer enormity of Serviceco’s remit in the UK and Ireland; “Our assets cover 1.2m miles on the road each week. We also expect to see that figure increase significantly towards the Christmas period. So much of what people will find under the tree and in the oven this Christmas will have been delivered by our assets. Serviceco are good to go, whatever the weather.”
