Branded vehicles 1928

Beck & Pollitzer’s initial fleet of branded vehicles

These two photos were taken in 1928, as Beck & Pollitzer began to expand its fleet of branded vehicles.

The first photo shows an Albion, one of the company’s preferred delivery vehicles. At the time this photo was taken, the company had six Albions which were in constant use, delivering items to and from all over the UK.

The second photo was the only Beck & Pollitzer branded crane that existed in the 1920s—the first of many to come in the following decades. The crane allowed the company to expand its expertise as shipping agents and represents the first steps into the world-renowned relocation and installation company we are today.
