A day in the life of a tanker driver

For any of you that haven’t already met our tanker driver here is Jamie 




He has been driving our 14 tonne tanker Paddy for 12 months now, his jobs are mainly planned works extracting diesel interceptors and dealing with bigger larger scale blockages. The tanker is mainly used on commercial sites including shopping centers, factories and pubs and restaurant's as it’s more powerful than a van pack and has the capability of holding a larger volume of water or waste.


Jamie passed his HGV class 2 just over 12 months ago and loves the bigger scale works, he is getting to know some of the repeat customers that use the tanker one of the biggest customers being the Emerson Group.  

Our tanker services include:

  • High pressure drain jetting
