Typical Used Curtainsider for Sale

Curtainsiders are the workhorses of the transport industry.  Extremely flexible, a curtainside truck can be used for such a wide range of delivery tasks.

It can obviously do everything a box truck can do.  If you want to load and unload quickly then there are the rear doors – either roller shutter style or with barn doors where the truck can be loaded from a loading bay.

Where the curtainsider comes into its own is when there are cumbersome objects that do not lend themselves to being loaded on pallets easily, but require the protection from the weather that a flatbed or drop side truck cannot afford.

A forklift can load the truck quickly from either side – if you are in a rush and have the resources, the curtainsider can be loaded on both sides at the same time using two forklifts.

Buying a Used Curtainsider

Buying a used curtainside truck is no different to making any other secondhand truck purchase.  You must take a good long look over the driveline, check the wheels and tyres etc.  The only additional area you need to consider is the state of the curtains and tracks themselves.

Take your time and undo every clip that holds the curtains in place, then fully slide them along to reveal the while of the loading area.  Make sure the belts are not worn and that there are no tears in the curtains.  Check of any earlier repairs to the curtains – it is not necessarily a terrible thing that they have been damaged slightly in the past, but the repair will need to be solid.

Some curtains look tired when they have had their previous graphics removed, but often, a decent quantity of traffic film remover can sort this out.  Buying a curtainsided truck with the logos simply painted over could be a lot of work to remove and you may be better negotiating a great deal with the seller and investing in a new set of curtains.

Curtain Replacement

It is not the end of the world if you have to replace the curtains – doing so will really smarten up the truck in any case.  Buying new curtains for the truck also means that you can change the colour to one that suits you better.  Bear in mind that there is usually only a choice of base colours – matching your livery may be a lot trickier.

Recycle Old Curtains

If you are buying new curtains for the curtainsider, then don’t just throw away the old ones – there is a company in Switzerland called Freitag (translated as Friday) that buys these curtains to make them into handbags and satchels.

Other Names for Curtainsiders

Tautliner

Over the years there have been plenty of companies making these types of truck bodies.  Sometimes the brand names stick – think Hoover and vacuum cleaners.  You may hear people talk about ‘Tautliners’ – this is a brand of curtainside body that is built by Boalloy in Cheshire.  They differ slightly to many curtainsiders in as much as the bottom of the curtain is never removed and the curtains simply slide along a rail.

Tilt Body

These are a type of curtainsider that is a lot more popular on the continent.  They are essentially a dropside truck with a removable frame and series of curtains.  This means that the truck can be used as a curtainsider, but if there are loads that are too tall for the frame (and are OK being exposed to the weather) then the frame is removed and the truck is a standard dropside.  This type of ‘Tilt’ or ‘Tiltliner’ body is common for semi-trailers in the continent.

In the UK we see the vast majority of trucks as traditional curtainsiders, with a tiny percentage being tiltliners.

Euroliners

These are trailers that look like curtainsiders that are used on the continent.  The main difference is that the roofs slide open to help loading from overhead.  This means that loading long items or heavy coils from an overhead gantry crane is possible.

Megaliners

Mega trailers in general are those that run on smaller wheels and tyres with a low-ride tractor unit.  Using smaller wheels means that the height of the body can be taller giving more load space.  In the UK this is less of a problem, as our motorway bridges are higher than on continental Europe.  We are able to have overheight trailers running on normal wheels and tyres.

Loyal Used Mercedes Truck Buyer Chooses Used Fuso

If you are a committed buyer of used Mercedes Trucks and you have built a rapport with the used truck salesman of the local franchised Mercedes truck dealer then it perhaps comes as no surprise that you could be convinced to try a Fuso Canter. As part of the same Daimler group, Mercedes dealers must also sell Fusos in the UK.
