Clearabee hits 100 waste removal truck milestone
Read Time: 4 mins
We are very excited to announce the achievement of a significant business milestone by expanding the size of our fleet of trucks to 100 vehicles. Our 100th truck was acquired as part of a £300,000 investment in 12 new vehicles.
All of our new trucks are set up to maximise safety, minimise weight and reduce environmental impact. They feature a range of safety systems including driving analysis technology and 360° cameras. The trucks have also been modified to minimise weight and run on efficient Euro 6 compliant HDi diesel engines capable of delivering 30 percent better fuel economy, 50 percent less CO2 than similar petrol engines and greatly reduced particulate and Nitrogen Oxide emissions compared to previous standards. We will offset 150 percent of the CO2 emissions created by its expanding fleet through accredited schemes.
Our 100th truck, which will be based in Lincoln and operate across the east of England, takes us one step closer to realising our vision of locating at least one truck and ‘man and van’ style waste removal team in every major UK town and city.
We were recently recognised as the fourth fastest growing UK-businesses based outside of London, and with 100 trucks and 250 employees now at our disposal, we are uniquely able to offer same day waste removal services across all of the UK in-house. We plan to add another 15 vehicles to our fleet over the next six months to support our continued growth across the country.
Daniel Long, founder and managing director at Clearabee, comments: “Clearabee’s investment in new vehicles and the acquisition of our 100th trucks reinforces our position as the largest provider of ‘man and van’ style waste removal services to homes and businesses in the UK. Our customers use Clearabee because they trust us to get rid of their rubbish quickly, conveniently and in full confidence that it will be dealt with properly. Each additional truck we put on the road cuts the time it takes us to respond to customer requests and reduces the average number of miles we have to travel per job.”
