Frequently Asked Questions

Ideally the turntable would be smaller than the maximum vehicle it needs to accommodate, and instead capture the wheels minimising the space required and ensuring consistent vehicle placement.

For permanent installations the turntable is usually installed into a pit to present a flat turntable level with the surround. For temporary solutions the turntable can be installed directly onto a slab with ramp up to the deck level.

This depends on the size of turntable – see the ‘Truck Turntable Size & Capacity Guide’ section at the top of this page for details.

This largely depends on the diameter of the turntable, however the cost will also be dependent on the installation location, and site-specific considerations. If you would like a quotation, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

There is usually a period of design collaboration with the architects and principal contractor, however once design is agreed a turntable can be manufactured and installed in as little as 6 weeks.

Our standard 12 month warranty applies to all of our products, however with proper maintenance the design life of permanently installed truck turntables is 25 years.

Normally the first 12 months of maintenance is included in the package with the Principal Contractor, after which the Facilities Management team usually agree an ongoing Service Level Agreement.
