CHAPPELLS OF STUBBINGTON

HeavyTorque Issue 7: Chappell's of Stubbington

PREMIUM PERFORMERS

SPENDING LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY ON HIGHLY-SPECIFIED EQUIPMENT ISN’T ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA BUT CHAPPELLS OF STUBBINGTON HAS FOUND A LITTLE SPARE EQUIPMENT CAPACITY GOES A VERY LONG WAY. BOB BEECH REPORTS.

It is all too easy for truck operators to invest huge sums in new equipment, only to find the customer is the main financial beneficiary. Careful balance is needed to invest in new equipment at the right time and ensure the outlay brings long-term benefits to your business.

Hampshire-based Chappells of Stubbington, however, has plenty of experience of running high-specification equipment and exercises great care in choosing the ideal combinations, taking the view that a heavy tractor or trailer needs to be carefully specified to meet the company’s current requirements and the long-term needs of its customers.

At times, some of its equipment has greater capacity than is strictly required, but the reserves of strength and durability ensure a long working life and excellent residual values, according to directors Mark Harris and Sam Chappell.

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?
