Our manager, Alan Lock, provides the link between customer and supplier. By spending time talking to a customer we get an understanding of their individual needs and requirements. This can be from something simple such as repositioning an internal partition to complete design and modification of rear door (tailboard) locking mechanics.

We can arrange for a customer to view transporters already built and in use locally or supply images showing different design aspects of new livestock transporters.

Not so many years ago, commercial vehicle dealers turned up local markets with a vehicle fitted with a new livestock transporter, they usually sold what they had on offer at the time. This is NO longer the case, the market place and its requirements have changed, there are many more options open to customers wanting to purchase a new livestock transporter.

Talk to us!

We will endeavour to ensure we obtain your exact requirements for your particular application, we can also arrange for the collection and fitment of your new transporter from the factory in Cumbria.

We can often offer a part exchange for your current livestock transporter and arrange for the finance of your new one if required.

We may also be able to supply you with a complete vehicle as follows:

  • Sourcing the required chassis
  • Building a new platform body
  • The fitment of a VBG drawbar hitch to pull a trailer, if required, topped off with a new Livestock transporter supplied by Houghton-Parkhouse.

It may take time but it can be done!
