Our Fleet

Due to continued success and growth, I.J. McGill Transport’s fleet has expanded and diversified greatly over the past 40 years. All of the equipment we use is owned and operated by us and all vehicles are on a full service rota, in line with our environmental policy

Our 170-strong core fleet of modern HGV vehicles is well equipped to support all your distribution requirements, and includes:

  • 12, 18 and 26 tonne tail lift fleet
  • 40 tonne tractor units
  • Double deck trailers
  • 13.6m curtain side tail lift trailers
  • Urban trailers
  • 13.6m flat step frame trailers
  • 7.5 tonne vehicles & Vans.

Our strict performance monitoring system ensures we allocate the right vehicles to your business, supported by highly qualified drivers. These tailored solutions also include a new vehicle replacement programme on a three-year cycle, so you can be assured of a constant, reliable and dependable performance.



Our Bristol Head Office operates 24 hours a day, handling all of  the administration of the business. It is also the hub of our IT systems, which can be accessed directly from our other two depots.

We have four dock levellers and can accommodate a further seven vehicles in our undercover loading area. This is immediately adjacent to a fully bar coded transient racking area which can sortate in excess of 650 pallets at any point in time, with provision for a further 6,500 on-site pallet locations for long term storage requirements.


Our storage depot in Tavistock is ideally located to cover both North and South Devon and is within easy distance for serving Cornwall. Our delivery drivers have the necessary local knowledge, which is invaluable during peak holiday times.


Situated in the Manchester International Freight Terminal on Trafford Park, our Manchester Storage Depot facilitates a cross docking operation, similar to our depot in Bristol, and has the capacity for expansion.

High Wycombe

The High Wycombe depot is on the Cressex Business Park on Coronation Road . We service the surrounding area and home counties. It is strategically placed to offer wide spread regional distribution and expand I.J McGill Transport’s ability to fully service the South of England. Warehouse storage is also available, so this new depot offers coverage of the area for both regional distribution and storage needs.

Birmingham Depot 

Situated a few hundred meters from the West Bromwich Football Stadium, in the heart of the Midlands, our Birmingham depot allows I.J. McGill Transport to extend our dedicated services to the hub of the country.

It provides a vital link in our expanding network allowing both distribution and warehouse services to the center of England.
