No problem, naturally we use trailers too, but most of the heavy haulage is done by the canter. Why would I drive a 5,6 or 7 lt truck when a 3lt will do? Any delivers over 3.5T we get the suppliers to deliver, just works out easier as we can load the trucks with the landscaping equipment. By the way we have about €500k of gear, too much to list here.
