Price Transport

About Us

Established in 1975, Price Express Transport specialised in the delivery of urgent freight and the transportation of Computer Equipment. This type of freight necessitated the use of tail-lift vehicles and as such the company has maintained it's 100% tail-lift fleet since that time.

Price Express Transport then moved into the field of moving Catering Equipment. We now have over 20 years experience in this field, which encompasses a complete range of products including Refrigeration Cabinets.

This specialisation has also led to an increase in handling Electrical Enclosure Cabinets and Vending Machines.

Realising the future competitiveness of standard pallet deliveries, we joined the PalletFORCE pallet network at its inception in 1991 as a shareholding member. PalletFORCE has been hugely successful, both in terms of expansion and the extremely high levels of service provided.

How We Do It

Vehicles

Price Express Transport realises the value of investing in our fleet. As a result, we operate a rolling vehicle replacement policy which ensures our fleet has an average age of less than 3 years old.

On the road, you will find our purpose built vehicles are fully equipped to handle just about every conceivable requirement. All of our trucks are fitted with Tail-lifts, Air Ride Suspension and Satellite Tracking to ensure we know where all our vehicles are at any given time.
