UKCM was established in 1998 and is the UK’s largest family owned container repair and refurbishment company. “We are completely dedicated to the refurbishment of all types of waste and recycling containers,” explains Liz.
“We offer both mobile and factory repairs and refurbishment solutions covering all sizes of waste containers on a national delivery and collection basis. We don’t sell new containers, but repair, refurbish and recycle containers so these valuable assets reach their full working potential.”
With a turnover in excess of £5.5 million, UKCM’s business is growing rapidly and alongside the five new FH tractor units the company has just taken delivery of five new Lawrence David trailers – three being double-deck triaxle curtain-siders with tail lifts and the other two, single deck curtain-siders with Moffett truck mounted fork-lifts supplied by Hiab. “We also have three further FH 6×2 tractor units on order for delivery by the summer,” adds Liz.
Both tractor units and trailers have been wrapped by Digital Revolution Print and Design of Sale in Cheshire.

All the new trucks are on Gold R&M contracts with Thomas Hardie Commercials, Middlewich. “We enjoy a fantastic relationship with the dealership and we’re always made to feel welcome,” says Liz. “The service provided to us has really impressed and nothing’s too much trouble. For me, communication and relationships are key and the team in Middlewich simply have it right when it comes to customer care. What’s more; our drivers are happy because they know that if they do have any issues, support is just a phone call away.”
