We are proud to say that we now have over 105 Years of Transport History! Our family business was founded by Fred Nicholls in 1910, our Grandfather, who started transporting milk and timber for local farmers in the nearby village of Wanstrow using horse and cart. Due to expansion, in 1930 the business moved to Witham Friary and was then transporting milk, timber and livestock.
Our Father Leonard, joined the company in 1935 at the age of 14 working with horses extracting timber from the woods, until the age of 17 when he started driving lorries, this led to the diversification into the transport of agricultural produce and bulk commodities. During 1982 a customer requested we move their mobile home; this was the beginning of the haulage business as it currently operates today.
Fred and Jess the two sons of Leonard took over in 1999 and together successfully run the company. Jess manages the farm, whilst Fred manages the caravan sales business, and the fleet of 12 lorries; over half of which specialise in the transporting static caravans, park homes, log cabins, touring caravans, boats and agricultural machinery.
