We pride ourselves in providing a reliable, efficient and friendly service which has created a loyal customer basewhich has remained with us for many years enabling the business to progress and expand. We are presently running 15 lorries and hold an international operators licence for the occassional overseas work when required.
We have our own up to date handling equipment which is necessary for the off-loading and loading of various stocks and have drivers qualified to operate these machines. All staff are provided with a company uniform which we feel gives a proffessional appearnce and is part of the high standard which we set.
We pride ourselves with our low staff turnover, their loyalty is reflected in the high standard at which they maintain the vehicles, which are assigned to them on a permanent basis.
We undertake a variety of work and have a network of other hauliers throughout the UK which we employ if necessary to fulfil our contracts. Some of our work is detailed below, and on the website. We have been undertaking this work for several years and our drivers are very familiar with places and equipment involved as well as the crictical timings often required for certain moves. This work is carried out when and where ever, regardless of times or dates. Construction We operate eight tipper lorries and often sub-hire in many more to fulfil the demand from the local construction companies for site work.
