Just 7 months until Hillhead

November 27th, 2019

The UK’s largest quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition will soon be back. Taking place on 23-25 June 2020 at Hillhead Quarry, in Buxton, Derbyshire and this year is set to see more exhibitors than ever before.

Hillhead is a major event for us, as you can probably imagine it is extremely challenging delivering and positioning trailers and hospitality units within a limestone Quarry! In previous years we have also had blazing heat to add to that strain, however we really enjoy the mission – it’s particularly rewarding because of the events’ spectacular backdrop and the great clients we deliver to each time.

Visitors to the show will be able to enjoy live working demonstrations within the unique setting, vast amounts of technology and machinery plus glimpses of the latest equipment, products and services on offer in the industry.

The ChockLock

November 18th, 2019

The ChockLock is a British built key-less locking mechanism; conceived, designed and deployed by TCM Trailers to secure their trailer fleet across the UK.

The ChockLock is quick to use and guarantees maximum security for unattended trailers, motorcycles, cars, boats, and more. Because the chock is locked to your wheel it prevents the chock from being stolen and your vehicle rolling away. Just £99+VAT for peace of mind.

This programmable 4 digit combination lock uses a key-less system to prevent theft which means no more lost keys! It’s a unique 2-in-1 chock and wheel clamp design which takes seconds to fit and remove and the robust galvanised steel construction fits a broad range of tyre sizes.
