Amber Lilly – the scent of the future?

Dec 13, 2011
It’s a girl – new arrival at Sandys, the 18 tonne Scania named Amber Lilley

It may sound like a new upmarket air freshener, but Dorset-based Sandys Removals is hoping that Amber Lilly represents the sweet smell of success.  The fleet’s new Scania five-door 18 tonner has been christened Lilly after owner Dave Sandy’s first grandchild – son Mike’s daughter – and Amber after driver Mark’s daughter.

Sandys Removals & Storage is very much a family firm, with son-in-law Martin also part of the team, so the naming of the new truck was an easy decision, added to the distinctive logo that has been a part of the north Dorset scenery for more than 40 years.  The Scania, fitted out to Dave Sandy’s specifications by Mac’s Trucks of Huddersfield, will be a useful addition to the company’s fleet, and will enable Sandys to take all size loads into London when the new London Emission Zone limits come into force in 2012.  Sandys will be offering its services to local companies on regular runs into the capital from its convenient base a few minutes from the A303/M3 corridor.

But the truck will also be earning its keep with the increasing number of country manor house removal contracts that the company has been winning in recent years.  “This new 5-door gives us the extra capacity and flexibility we need for the bigger jobs and greater distances we’re doing now,” said Dave, “and we’re hoping that Amber Lilly will lead to further expansion.”
