About the employer

Arthur Wilson began trading in 1964 undertaking commercial & car repairs from home. A few years later he got a van and was able to undertake mobile repairs. Later still Arthur had the chance to purchase a commercial workshop and took a risk to establish his commercial repair business. In 1976 after working on other peoples trucks and with the promise of work he started his own Haulage business specialising in hauling building products. Since then fleet has grown to 10 vehicles. All the fleet have mechanical off loading, either crane or forklift. However this is not a ordinary fleet as several of the vehicles have customised paint work including a Bob the Builder, Wacky Races and Batman. Watch out for the next one!! With customised paint work being a speciality we can offer our customers personalised paint work, refurbushment to trailers and trucks. We also offer commercial vehicle and trailer repairs, MOT preparation and Roadside repairs.
