Shropshire companies’ safe solution to moving touring caravans

Two companies with bases in Shropshire have worked together to come up with a safe handling solution that saves time and ultimately reduces strain on staff.

Award-winning caravan and motorhome dealership Salop Leisure has invested in a pedestrian operated Multi-Mover XL50 electric tow tug to allow staff to move touring caravans in and out of the company’s busy workshops.

Multi-Mover UK, which has its head office in Burton-On-Trent and a warehouse in High Ercall, Telford, offers an extensive range of pedestrian operated tugs with up to 80 tonnes of push and pull capability.

The Multi-Mover XL50 moves everything on wheels up to 5,000kg with 2,800 Newton tractive force. The XL series has several types of steering, a variety of hitches to choose from, different tyres and is available in three very strong and reliable electric motors.

“We are very pleased to have supplied one of our electric tow tugs locally to Salop Leisure,” said James Dixon, Multi-Mover UK sales manager. “The acquisition of a Multi-Mover shows Salop Leisure’s commitment to improving employee safety, reducing emissions and improving efficiency.”

Kevin Courtney, Salop Leisure’s business development manager, said: “We were previously using a tractor to move touring caravans in and out of the workshops, so there are obvious environmental and safety benefits to using the Multi-Mover, which is small, easy to operate and emission free.

“Staff like using it because it saves time, is more efficient and improves safety.”

Multi-Mover UK’s tugs are used in factories, airports and on production lines to provide a safe heavy handling solution. They are easily operated, do not require a driving licence, are silent, emission free and have more than a day’s use from just one charge.

The company offers a range of service packages designed to ensure that each Multi-Mover is always safe and reliable. Because certain working environments and tasks place varying demands on the Multi-Movers, the company designs service packages to meet every need.
