HeavyTorque Issue Ten: Bugler Transport

FROM BOATS TO BLADES

DORSET-BASED BUGLER TRANSPORT HAS LONG BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH THE MOVING OF ALL TYPES OF MARINE CRAFT THROUGHOUT THE UK AND EUROPE, BUT AS WINNER OF THE HEAVIES 2016 CAT2 JOB OF THE YEAR DEMONSTRATED, THEY ALSO MOVE ULTRA-LONG WIND TURBINE BLADES.

It all began in 1968 with Reg Bugler, Chris’s father, delivering engineering parts daily to London in an old egg van bought for £15.00. The company was originally called R A Bugler and its first new truck, a Leyland Laird flat-bed rigid, took to the road in 1969, carrying bricks, machinery and other cargoes for local companies. Bugler senior, who was originally in partnership with his brother Francis, soon moved up the weight range into artics.

An opportunity to transport a boat came along and Reg decided to give it a try. Inevitably someone else wanted a boat shifted and before long it was a major part of the workload. His brother decided to concentrate on brick haulage and went his own way as F V Bugler Transport, painting his vehicles red, as opposed to the blue livery of R A Bugler.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
