History of R Barkley & Sons Transport

R Barkley & Sons was established in 1962 by Richard Barkley with its headquarters based in Ballymoney, Co Antrim with 2 other depots in Heywood & Stoke. In 2000 R Barkley & Sons became a Ltd company with an outstanding reputation for professionalism and service. Nowadays it is run by the sons, Kenneth & Brian with a fleet of over 45 DAF units, over 100 trailers and employs 61 staff providing a UK-Ireland service.

August 2012 was a landmark month for R Barkley & Sons as we celebrated 50 years in business and the family run haulage company keeps striving forward offering a top quality service. The service we offer to our clients is general haulage, including machinery, plant & tractors, specialist haulage & groupage hence the opening of our Stoke depot. We also offer onsite warehousing at all our depots.

R Barkley & Sons 45 fleet consists mostly of DAF trucks and has done so right from the start of business, as their depot operates beside us here in Ballymoney and we have a good working relationship with them. Also included within our perfectly maintained fleet of trucks is one Scania & one Volvo.

The next milestone for R Barkley & Sons Ltd is a century and we see no reason why we won’t get there as we offer an impeccable service to our all clients, new & existing.
