WHO WE ARE
Richard Lester derives from a family of specialist haulage contractors dating back to the 1930’s. In those early days we ran a selection of vehicles including bulk tippers, cement mixers and a wide range of plant machinery. We was very proud to have been a major contributor in creating Carsington Reservoir.
Richard Lester are now the 4th generation and concentrates it’s business on the bespoke transporting of plant machinery and over-sized freight for businesses through-out the UK on specialist trucks and HIAB lorries. Operating out of Wirksworth, a small quarrying town in the heart of Derbyshire, with a fleet of 40+ trucks we have rapidly grown to be one of the major specialist transport company’s offering an abnormal loads lifting and transporting service.
Our wide range of haulage services are aimed at the commercial and agricultural markets, as well as increasingly over the last few years to the utilities, construction and rail industry sectors. We have working contracts with the likes of Utility Power Systems, Rotrex Winches, Peak Pipe Systems and many more industry leading organisations.
