In the first quarter of 2020, we were contacted by TIP regarding the possibility of providing them with our EVC solutions.

They requested that we design an installation that would provide them with ten Electric Vehicle Chargepoints at their location in Trafford Park, Manchester.

Headquartered in Amsterdam, TIP is one of the leading providers of both equipment and services within Europe and Canada. Located in 18 countries, and offering over 140 service locations, TIP specializes in providing the transportation and logistics sector with leasing, rental, maintenance, and repairs through a wide selection of trailer equipment.


We discussed with the client the different options and eventually designed an EVC solution that would provide them with five dual electrical charging stations and we assisted with the administrative process which resulted in TIP obtaining a £5000 OLEV grant towards the cost of the installation.

In a full turnkey project we provided the following services;

  • All civil engineering works which included the excavation of part of the existing car park with full reinstatement on completion of the electrical work.
  • Installation of electrical switchgear and cabling to the five EVC stations.
  • Installation and commissioning of the ten electrical charge point.


“From the outset when we were looking to install EV charging units the service that we have had from John and Gallaghers has been exemplary. John walked us through all the options and explained the differences in easy to understand speak. John also took the lead on much of the administration requirements to ensure that the process was very easy for TIP. When it came to his staff doing the work, we could not have been any happier with the service that we received and the finished product. The employees where conscientious, informative and very polite. They were also very clean in that there was never any mess left at the end of each night. Indeed, the finished product is of the highest workmanship. We would recommend Gallaghers to anyone looking for a great professional service.”
