Here are a few testimonials from companies who have used the Bessie for their vehicles. Including DHL, BIBBY Distribution and more.

I have the Bessie system on my trucks and I think that the BESSIE is the solution for any trucking company.  Cutting out the costly call out fees and time saved on breakdowns any driver can replace an airline now without tools, so the truck is back on the road, meaning no fines for late delivery, no call out charges. I am very happy with this product the best system to come onto the market

The Bessie System has been successfully addressed an industry wide problem that has resulted in excessive downtime and unnecessary cost for many years.

The well designed and manufactured product has enabled Menzies to reduce its cost, improve productivity, vehicle up time and meet our customer’s service requirements.  Menzies have been so impressed with the system, we have specified the Bessie System be fitted on all new vehicles for many years.

We have been running our trucks with the Bessie Quick Release Couplings for the last two years and now can happily state it has been a very good decision on our part.” We used to lose several hours a month running time through broken airlines not to mention the cost implications of getting external assistance to get us underway.  “However now the drivers can change their own in a simple and safe manner and be back on the road in minutes”.  As a result of its success we now have 450 plus trucks fitted with the Bessie Kits and now request it to be spec as standard on all future purchases.

Here at Kuehne and Nagel we consider the Bessie to be a great addition to our fleet.

The Bessie has proved to be a good cost saving product for our airlines, replacing an broken airline with this system couldn’t be easier which would normally incur an extra cost for a call out , with the Bessie this is now no longer required. Once the kit has been fitted, changing an airline take minutes and can be done by the driver of the truck with no need for the use of tools. We use both Normal and Palm coupling as standard.

We now have the Bessie fitted as standard on all our new trucks.

For the Last 8 years we have fitted the Bessie Spannerless Airline, we have the system fitted to all our fleet.   Our airline failures were always a cause for concern to us as we run very close coupled Fridge Tractor Trailer combinations.

Since Deciding to fit the Bessie System our troubles have dissipated away so that now we don’t have to worry one bit as we can rest easy in the knowledge that the trucks are kitted out with the Bessie’s and that our drivers can change their own lines in minutes and be back on his journey with the minimum of fuss and “Bingo” for us, Minimum cost and downtime.

We have been using the Bessie Airline System for the past 6 years and now can say our whole fleet is equipped with the kit. This is a part of our spec on all new vehicles as the simplicity of the system gives both driver and operator peace of mind. Reducing costly call out fees and breakdown time reduced, we can happily say The Bessie Airline System is a MUST have product.

New Bessie Spannerless Airlines fitted to our trucks for the past 5 years “I think these are great, no more late night calls for broken airlines, well worth it for peace of mine knowing the driver can change his line and be back on the road in no time and the best thing “no call outs “

Best thing to be fitted to a truck since the wheel many thanks to CV Air Systems Consultants Ltd

I consider my investment in the Bessie product as a form of insurance.

When a driver finds himself with airlines ripped out through turning in a confined space too tightly, it can be guaranteed it is never in a convenient place and can cause considerable hold ups in factory premises or even on roundabouts, junctions etc. With the Bessie the driver is in control and can quick get himself moving with minimal disruption and cost.

It takes just one instance per vehicle and the cost of installation is paid for and of course the system can be re-used following vehicle replacement.
We are all aware of the current situation regarding the skilled labour shortage and a truck brought to a halt by broken airlines could be waiting several hours for help to arrive. As far as I am concerned it is a standard fitment on my fleet and one less worry for my staff to deal with.

Best Regards

‘The Bessie product has saved us from many callouts which normally incur extra costs and the extra downtime of waiting for the part to be replaced. Once the kit has been fitted, swapping the replacement Suzie out takes just a few minutes by any driver with no tools, this how now become a standard fit on all new and existing GDL Group vehicles’

I Have a Haulage company in Glastonbury, where I run a multi fleet. I have had the Bessie fitted to our fleet for a number of years, it has proved to be an asset to the fleet, cutting out the costly call out fees and time saved on break downs as any driver can replace an airline and the simplicity of the system gives peace of mind to driver and operator.

With the Bessie the driver is in control of the breakdown of his airline and can quickly get himself moving with the minimum of fuss and time and cost.
As a result we now have the Bessie System fitted to our fleet as Standard.

I have a haulage company in Tewkesbury I have had the Bessie fitted to my trucks and I can say that it is the best thing since sliced bread, not only has it saved me time but money as well. Before I had the Bessie fitted we were delivering shower trays to a DIY Warehouse in Ireland, the airline fractured en-route in Ireland, and this incurred a 3 hour wait, plus the fitting and callout charges, plus a fine for late delivery all of which amounted to getting on for £900.00

With airline breakage making up a significant proportion of all breakdowns the “Bessie” will offer a significant long term saving, especially when you consider the cost of replacement hose is a fraction of the initial cost of the kit, I wouldn’t be without it. Absolutely a brilliant piece of kit a must have for any truck company. The Airline can be changed and the truck back on

The road within minutes with no fuss and no call out charge as the driver can change the airline himself.

As the Bessie uses BS138 couplings there is minimal requirement for extra training for the driver, as the set of parts will come with a series of instructions that are simple to follow, and are an extension of the existing coupling practice.
