E.J. Holyoake has a long and varied experience with building and customising commercial vehicles to suit the specific needs of the customer. We can convert refrigerated lorries to uninsulated ones, replace entire bodies either from a kit, or designed from scratch. Some examples of our work can be found below, but our expertise stretches to many other builds.
All of our builds are designed and built without cutting corners or using inferior materials meaning that they are rugged and long lasting. We use both primer and undercoat for all of our painting to ensure that even the finish lasts for as long as possible.
We are capable of building curtained bodies, as well as bodies using GRP, aluminium, steel and wood depending on the client's brief.
Our build capability stretches from initial body chassis construction to finishing and fitting fixtures, designing, manufacturing and installing storage units and fitting health and safety equipment.
We can build bodies in a variety of materials. Box and Luton bodies are available in either GRP for a quick build, or Aluminium for a lighter build, allowing a larger payload and smaller fuel bills.
We offer a large variety of tail and accessibility lifts along with a repair, maintenance and testing service. Please see the tail lift page for more details.
We build, paint and signwrite vehicles all on site allowing for a quick turn around of vehicles. All of our vehicles are primed before painting allowing for a more durable finish and keeping your vehicle looking new for longer.
SPECIALISTIf a standard build doesn't suit your needs we are able to help design and build a fully bespoke body to meet your requirements. Please click here to see examples of some of our more unusual builds.
AIR KITS AND MANUFACTURER PACKAGES
We can fit most after sales kits including air kits, body kits and side impact bar kits.
We have a strong tradition of modifying commercial vehicles to suit specific storage needs. We can design and install lockers either inside the body or accessible from the outside.
We can fit a large variety of flooring including coated plywood, treadplate, hexadeck and boarded floors depending on the client's requirements
