Customer in Focus: Independent Equipment Transport

Our friends at Independent Equipment Transport (IET) have been in business providing heavy haulage and over dimensional transportation across the country for over 30 years. Like us, they’re a family-owned business who go beyond industry standards while offering a quality service.

Where some general transport companies might not be equipped to handle a load, IET can step in regardless of shape, size, weight or fragility. They’re known for taking on the jobs others won’t touch, including moving bulldozers, excavators, cranes and anything else you can imagine. That’s why they needed the high quality, custom designed heavy haulage trailers only The Drake Group can design manufacture and support.

It was great to see David at the end of March 2020, as they picked up their brand-new Drake 4X4 Extendable Deck Widener with Rear Steer. You’re unlikely to miss them out on the road as they return to Geelong with their stunning red livery, achieved with 2 Pack Paint – it’s a definite head turner. The controls for the individual hydraulic suspension and ramps look like something from NASA control, too.

The Drake Deck Wideners are available with airbag, spring or the most popular hydraulic suspension. Hydraulic suspension enables you to level the trailer out on high cambered roads to improve safety whilst loading and unloading and provides improved stability. Standard with EBS and Roll Stability, they can even be outfitted with self-tracking axles and onboard scale systems and remote-control operation to round out the package. All these customisable components and more are the reason the Deck Widener remains one of our most popular models going back over fifty years.

We’d like to thank David Mendelson and the entire team at Independent Equipment Transport for the continued support and look forward to more great success for them in the future. Contact the team at The Drake Group today to find out how we can make a trailer built exactly for your transport needs.
