We are proud to announce that in June 2017 we were awarded the FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Bronze Accreditation.
With contractual obligations and our constant desire for improvement we needed to be a part of the FORS scheme.
The 4 key areas they audit are Management, Vehicles, Operations & Drivers and receiving this accreditation leaves us with the reassurance that we are running a company that is safe, efficient & environmentally friendly.
We will continue to maintain these standards and strive to achieve the next level of accreditation in the near future.
Our in house workshop is key to keeping our fleet running smoothly and efficiently and with the installation of the new R2C Online: Fleet Management Software we are confident that this will only continue to get better.
It is necessary to show real-time vehicle repairs and the installation of R2C has allowed this whilst also enabling us to go paperless with record keeping and to connect with our customers.
We rolled out the electronic Pre Use Checks and Defect Reporting a few months later which notifies the workshop instantly of any issues. This allows them to prepare ahead of time, reducing the off road time of the vehicle.
We can’t be coy about this major haulage contract. Coy & Son Ltd were asked to put together an 11 vehicle convoy to transport an Agricultural Machinery Roadshow around Ireland and it proved to be a huge success for our client.
Farmers, landowners and golf course greenkeepers all flocked to see an impressive array of state-of-the-art agricultural and grass cutting equipment as the Roadshow travelled across Ireland.
The exhibition had visitors fascinated with the capabilities and specifications of all the equipment on show.
You can’t beat a travelling Roadshow for creating customer awareness on heavy agricultural equipment.
It’s not every day you get asked to deliver a Wide Combine Harvester into Kew Gardens in London. To say the least… this was a huge task in terms of logistical and transportation problems, accessibility and scale.
It was one of those ‘one off’ haulage projects that even caught the eye of popular broadcaster and gardener, Alan Titchmarsh, in his fascinating TV programme series called, ‘A Year at Kew’.
Anyone who saw the BBC2 programme would understand that hauling such a large piece of agricultural machinery into these world famous gardens gave us a few unexpected new challenges, but not beyond Coy’s capabilities.
Trying to put a quart into a pint pot springs to mind… and it certainly created a worthy story line for Alan Titchmarsh’s viewers and Kew’s Head Gardener.
