Top-quality, safe and reliable lifting, rigging and height safety equipment is vital for businesses working with heavy materials. Bullivants, a specialist provider of lifting, rigging and height safety in the industrial sector, has introduced an Australian-first mobile sales, service and repair truck to ensure that businesses in Newcastle and the surrounding region can work efficiently all year round.

Convenient and cost-effective, the ‘one-stop shop’ service allows businesses to continue working while having the reassurance of Bullivants’ quality products and expert technicians overseeing their equipment.

“The service has been born out of the need to be agile in following our customers wherever the work site is, including locations such as mining, construction and infrastructure projects, and being able to serve almost all of their needs on the spot, in real time,” says Bullivants General Manager Kent Eimbrodt.

Previously, equipment had to be taken off-site to be repaired, costing money and time, but this service keeps sites operational, eliminating costly downtime, minimising work interruptions and reducing transport costs.

“When we interviewed and surveyed customers the most common claim made was they didn’t want to have their gear leave site for inspections and repairs, as they want the minimum downtime from production,” says Eimbrodt. “This was key in developing the concept – we are always striving to deliver the best customer experience we can.”

Every worksite, big or small, is catered for. As well as inspection, testing and repair of lifting, rigging, and height safety equipment, other services include horizontal and vertical load testing in a patented in-built test bed, certification of lifting equipment, wire rope repair including wire rope end-termination, online asset register, replacement and repair stock, direct purchases of shackles, soft slings, chain blocks, chain slings and much more with an on-board sales and invoicing system.

“We understand our customers operate in a world of potential risk and danger, and safety is our number one priority,” says Eimbrodt. “Our Zero Harm philosophy is aimed at keeping workers safe whether you’re rigging, lifting, hoisting, slinging or working at heights, so the Bullivants mobile sales and service truck is always ready to visit a worksite to help our customers stay operational and safe with the best quality product and highly trained technicians.”

Each technician is extensively trained and gains the necessary certification before being allowed to work at customer’s sites.

“We’re proud to be the experts in the industry, leading the way with exceptional products and ever-expanding services on offer,” says Eimbrodt. “Since 1891 we have provided, and continue to provide, a comprehensive solution to help customers operate safely and efficiently.”

The service is currently available in the greater Newcastle region with plans to expand. David McPhan, owner and operator of McPhan Cranes and Transport in Wyong, on NSW’s central coast, describes the service as “game-changing”.

“Having been a long-term client of Bullivants, it made sense to try the new service truck and it’s incredible how much time and money it saves us,” he says. “I used to have to drive from Wyong to Newcastle for a service, which would cost around $700 and half a day’s work. The Bullivants service truck has everything to test all our equipment and it’s done expertly and quickly. It’s the obvious choice for companies with lifting and rigging equipment.”
