Letters of Thanks from customers.
Dear Mike, Lorraine, Colin and Paul,
This is a belated thankyou for your guidance and advice during my PCV course with you back in August. I have now been driving for Ingleby's Coaches for nearly two months (where's that time gone?) and thought I must put pen to paper before Christmas arrives!
I am enjoying the job very much, getting used to the long hours and also to manoeuvring a coach through seemingly impossible situations!
Seriously though, thanks Mike for your practical and professional instruction - I still hear your words in my head when I meet certain situations. Thanks also for your recommendation to Chris Ingleby - he's very particular about his drivers so I count myself fortunate to have got a job with him.
Thanks also to you, Lorraine, for sorting the 'paperwork side', dealing with my ex-employers and booking test times, leaving me more time to concentrate on passing the tests!
Finally, Thanks to Colin and Paul for your instruction and advice in and out of the classroom - always relevant, often humorous and sometimes downright filthy!
Thanks to all, hope to see you around and about, and good luck in the future.
John Hornby, 20th October 2001.

The counterbalance lift truck is the most 'normal' lift truck to operate, the most widely used across all warehousing industries and small businesses..
Reach trucks are operated in warehouses with very smooth floors and unlike counterbalance trucks they are only operated inside. They can also operate in small spaces and lift loads higher, so they are more efficient in a warehouse environment.
Pedestrian Stacker trucks are less common than reach trucks but they are extremely manouvreable, so popular in places that any other lift truck are too big to operate within.
The electric- or gas-powered platform that is mounted on folding arms is used to provide elevated work areas or to help raise or lower unit loads. The objective is to access difficult-to-reach areas in order to perform whatever work is required. Scissor lifts provide a mobile means of reaching areas that are very high.
|Rough Terrain Telehandler
Purhaps the biggest and most spectacular of all lift truck, this machine can travel through wet, muddy, rough terrain and lift up to 5-6 tons, extending the boom arm to position the load up to 15 metres away. Used mainly by farmers and in construction, however they are extremely capable in any industry.
Moffett Mounty forklifts as they are often known due to the company that invented them are also known as Lorry Mounted Forklifts. They mount to the rear of a truck or trailer and are used by the driver for self loading or unloading of their vehicle.
The different lift truck types are very complicated, we are always happy to help and explain the regulations.
