Beck & Pollitzer vehicle hire advert from 1980s

This Beck & Pollitzer advert is from the late 1980s.

At the time, the company had a trade vehicle and transport hire department, providing vans, lorries and articulated vehicles to clients across the world.

This hiring service was a cost-effective way for clients to ensure their goods and machinery arrived safely at their destination. Fully insured, with a wide range to choose from, Beck & Pollitzer provided for both short and long-term transport requirements.

At this point in history, Beck & Pollitzer had been in the transport and relocation business for over 100 years. Our name — as it still is today—was synonymous with quality service.

Today, our relocation projects are handled in-house, with our range of vehicles operated by engineers and other members of the Beck & Pollitzer workforce. However, the quality reassurance remains the same. We provide world-class relocation services and installation services in a range of sectors. As the advert says: you hire more than a vehicle when you hire from Beck & Pollitzer.
