About Us

Gilberts Of Wakefield was formed in 1992 by Husband & Wife team
Jeff & Joanne Gilbert.

Over the years the name Gilbert Transport has gained a reputation with all their customers for first class service & reliability.

Jeff & Joanne strongly believed that all their customers no matter how big or small must receive a reliable service for the best possible value for money, this strong belief is what forms the solid foundation that has helped the Company grow from strength to strength.
As the Company expanded Jeff & Joanne felt the time was right to introduce a new member to the management team and in 1994 Jeff's brother Craig joined the Company.

Our customers

We have a large customer base at Gilbert Transport from the small Fabricating shop to Blue Chip Companies, many of whom have been with us since we began in 1992. We carry a large variation of goods such as Temporary Fence Panels for building sites, Steel and lengths up to 10m, machine parts to Power Stations (normally parts which are required for breakdowns, where time is of the essence), Powder Coated, Polished goods whereby the goods must be protected in transit, so ensuring their good condition on arrival at their destination, as well as Timber and Timber sections for the building industry right down to small items that could easily be sent by courier but are delivered by us because when we say we will deliver at 4.30am etc. - WE WILL!

Our fleet

The Company has a fleet of six Mercedes Sprinters that are maintained to a very high standard and all vehicles operate from our home base in Wakefield just minutes from the M1 Motorway. All goods and vehicles are stored in our secured depot and kept undercover.

Our staff

All staff employed by Gilbert's go through a rigorous interview to ensure that only the best staff possible are employed. All staff/vehicles are fully equipped with the relevant P.P.E. required by today's tough industry standard's and where required, we are able to provide Method Statements And Risk Assessments for any deliveries carried out. 

Not only are we able to deliver goods on time but are able to provide a helping hand if required, to safely unload the goods from our vehicles.
