Modified commercial vans for specific industries

Lincolnshire Tree Services (LTS) is a professional tree surgery business based in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

They offer a range of services including tree surveys, tree surgery and felling, utility arborists and site clearance. Owned by James Kendall, the company was established in 2006 and has grown year on year, employing many local young people who (like Jim) want an active, outdoors career.
Scotts Commercials have been part of Jim’s story from the early days, providing him with his first transit tipper eleven years ago, which was modified in the workshop at Scotts Commercial with a purpose built body for arboriculture that included:

“Having used Scotts for that initial customised tipper,” explained Jim, “it was clear that I had found a company that completely understood what a tree surgeon needed as well as the full potential of the vehicle I had bought. They modified that tipper to a superb standard, quickly and within budget, so as a self-employed young man I was off to a great start with exactly the right vehicle making every task much easier.”

Eleven years on and Jim is still turning to Scotts for all his commercial vehicle needs.

“They always find a van or tipper to fit out requirements and budget,” he added. “Over the years we must have had 16 vehicles in our fleet from Scotts including tippers, vans, trucks and trailers, many modified for arboriculture in the workshop at Scotts and all regularly serviced by them too. They have taken on the fleet management of LTS, which means me and my team are free from the stress and hassle that can involve. They handle all our MOTs, maintain a service history for each vehicle and always provide courtesy vehicles when needed. And perhaps most crucially they always come to our rescue when stranded, vital for a business that is so often out ‘in the wild’. I would recommend them to anyone, with no reservations.”
