Mobile workshops that can operate in the secure car park

Customers of the Le Truck Village secure car park on Eurotunnel's French site can now have their tractor and semi-trailer repaired before or after their journey by train through the Channel Tunnel. A workshop vehicle will be present every day at the Truck Village to carry out repairs and maintenance operations. The mobile maintenance units are equipped with all the tools necessary to intervene independently on customer parks: impact wrench, compressor, power batteries, workbenches, heat gun, etc...

This new service is set up in partnership with TIP Trailer Services, European leader in the rental and maintenance of semi-trailers.

"Our mobile maintenance units allow us to carry out, independently, preventive and general mechanical maintenance interventions as well as "minor" bodywork work", specifies Frederic Notte, Vice-President of TIP for Southern Europe. . “ Our experienced technicians have the qualifications and tools necessary for all diagnostics ”.

Christian Dufermont, Freight Commercial Director of Eurotunnel , said: " These new services offered to our Freight customers demonstrate our desire to satisfy our customers even more, while allowing them to cross the Channel with their goods in the most secure way possible "
