Collett is based in Halifax, with yards in Elland, Bradford, Goole and Grangemouth
in Scotland. It also has an office in Dublin, Ireland. It can trace its roots back to 1928 when Richard Collett began by transporting his and other farmers milk to the dairy by horse and cart near Keighley. In 1933 he purchased his first wagon and by the 70’s the company had moved into general haulage and heavy transportation. More recently it has added the supply of craneage, along with heavy lift, contract lifts and rigging services to its portfolio.
