Supporting Royal British Legion fundraising decals on our Truck

Evans transport haulage rememberance poppy north devon

Richard who is a long distance bulk tipper driver, will be raising money throughout the year for the Royal British Legion. This year commemorates 100 years since the 1st world war which ended 11th November 1918.

 In order to support him to raise awareness and gain donations, additional graphics have been added to the truck.

The truck can be seen be at local fundraisers and events at weekends and during the week it will be used around the country to haul bulk products.

The graphics show a solider bowing his head and onlooking a poppy with a cross silhouette to symbolise his fallen comrade with the message:

“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them”.

If you would like to give a donation or go and see the truck and one of the events please email Richard for a list of destinations at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

New 45ft Cartwright Artic Trailer with Forklift

Tipping Lorry

Evans Transport has just taken delivery of a brand new Cartwright 45ft artic trailer complete with mounting kit for a Moffett Mounty forklift.

The Moffett has also been provided by Cargotec on a trial basis to try this new venture which if successful the forklift will then be purchased.

The purpose is to provide the end user a solution where the forklift can be dismounted and the goods are unloaded without the need to hire in there own or have the laborious task of taking it off by hand.

The forklift is capable of lifting 2 tonne so bulky pallets can also be offloaded.

The trailer is available to go anywhere in the country but will not be able to travel into Europe due to its height.
