About - AC Services

About

A C Services was established in 1998 by two of the current directors, Andrew Coleman and his wife, Annette Coleman. Andrew’s background included being in business with his late father, Albert Coleman, operating up to eight HGV’s on general haulage and tippers, under the company name of Colemans Transport and working projects such as the M40. Annette’s background included running a bridal shop, Brides Corner with her mother, as well as raising their son’s, Thomas and Richard. 

Together, Andrew and Annette turned their hands to most groundwork projects. Quickly growing the business, employing staff and taking on bigger projects. In 2006, Andrew was approached to put a contracted 8-wheeler on the road as plant in Banbury had reopened. In 2007, he was again asked to invest in a second vehicle, they then decided to pack up the groundworks and concentrate on the haulage. In 2011, a different opportunity arose whereby we put a Hiab vehicle on the road with assistance from Andrew’s brother, Robert. In 2012, a second Hiab hit the road increasing the capacity of work that could be undertaken. 

In 2013, Richard Coleman joined the business after working for Scania where he joined as an apprentice and worked up through the apprenticeship program becoming a Technician at the Banbury workshop. Richard joined the company and drove a Hiab for a couple of years, then drove a tipper, before going into the office and assisting with the day to day running of the business. Richard is now Operations Director and manages the business, business growth and all operations. 

Since 2013 and running four trucks, the fleet has steadily grown to now operating 15 trucks and 5 trailers. The business has moved operating centres, now based at Edgehill, North Oxfordshire/South Warwickshire border, it is ideally located for many major projects but also on M40 corridor with great links to travel nationwide. The new operating centre has given A C Services the opportunity to build a custom office as well as invest in the workshop and brake testing rollers to ensure the maintenance keeps the trucks on top of their game.

Now operating 15 vehicles, this comprises of, two Hiab vehicles, one low loader / flat articulated vehicle, two tipping arctic’s, 11 rigid tippers and one 4×4 light commercial towing vehicle. The site also offers brake testing services which can be hired out should anyone require brake testing. 

The office has a team of two people, ready to assist customers, with a wealth of transport knowledge, ranging across various parts of the transport industry. The drivers also have a range of knowledge with some drivers having 30 years plus transport experience. Their experience is priceless and is a real asset to A C Services. They help train new, up-coming members, to the team and are always on the end of the phone to help, which is priceless to the team morale at A C services. 

The team’s reliability and can-do attitude allows for confidence and certainty when A C Services tender for new projects. A C Services’ dependability, knowledge and experience is important when assisting customers with their choice of vehicles, ensuring the best suited vehicles go to site to get every job done in the safest and most efficient, cost saving manner.

"Ac services provide exceptional service from start to finish. I found the staff courteous and efficient, they could not have been more helpful. When I need a tipper, they turned up on the time slot they tell me they are going to be there. The whole experience was professional and painless. I would highly recommend them and look forward to a long partnership between them and us at FGD ltd"
