Exhibition Container Delivery for Street Food Live

Late November sees Street Food Live taking place at the Excel and BBEL were on hand to help Rexmartins Ltd take their innovative displays centre stage.

We brought a 20 footer food unit weighing six tonnes and another smaller unit from Turkey to the UK especially for this event.

As you can imagine, the process required some highly specialised equipment. In the images below you can see the careful transfer of the unit using a HIAB (Hydrauliska Industri AB) loader and a 50-tonne crane.

The second unit we delivered was a smaller (2 tonne) characterful unit called the Yellow Submarine. This required less specialised equipment but the same level of care and attention to detail.
