As one of the largest fleet operators in the local area with over 240 HGVs, Mick George Ltd will have a selection of their brand new trucks on display at Truckfest 2016, the largest truck show in the country.

Truckfest is the largest commercial vehicle event in Europe, and this year plans to be the biggest event ever with more entertainment planned, and even more trucks attending. There will be Monster Truck action in the main arena, with Britain’s favourite monster truck Swamp Thing crashing its way over cars alongside breathtaking motorcycle action from stunt duo Broke FMX.
Celebrity guests Lisa Kelly and Todd Dewey from the latest Ice Road Truckers series will be at the show for fans to meet and greet, alongside television’s Ronnie and Amy Shirley from Lizard Lick Towing.
Mick George Ltd will have their latest HGV’s on display and will be providing free demos on the state-of-art safety features that are installed on vehicles across their fleet. There will also be special appearances from the Mick George Cheerleaders and Mick the Skip, as well as the chance to win prizes on their mini ‘Chip in the Skip’ challenge.
The company has recently expanded its operation to Boston and Leicester and is looking to recruit more drivers across all their operating areas: Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Peterborough and Leicestershire.
