Although it officially starts this Saturday Topspeed has already circumnavigated France this year on behalf of a leading sports company.
Last month we were asked by Adidas to help them collect all the components of a large stand and deliver them safely to Monaco where they were being used for an exhibition.
The stand was made up of a series of flat packed panels (weighting over half a tonne) as well as marketing signage, tools and accessories.
This was a job for Simon Pope, one of Topspeed most experience drivers, in his blue (not yellow) Jersey.
Using one of Topspeeds Luton Vans complete with tail lift, all the components were flat pack loaded at the carpenters in Barnsley. Simon then drove through the UK and France to reach Monaco and helped unload all the parts ready for the build up of the stand at the exhibition.
Simon spent a couple of day’s recovering on the Cote D’Azur and then re-loaded the van for the return journey. From start to finish just over a week and without the aid of steroids or blood boosting EPO’s.
Elizabeth Darricarrere, Assistant Marketing Manager at Adidas said; “Everything was absolutely spot on from Topspeed – really efficient. Simon was great, did exactly as we asked for and even offered to help out with our other truck load when we had issues with another company”
Business Development Director at Topspeed, Dave Turner commented “it’s always great to get positive comments like the one from Elizabeth. Its shows that we can not only do the routine but we can also do the bespoke customer project work to an equally high standard”
