Specialist courier services

Our core business is the express delivery of packages large and small. We’ve been established for more than 20 years, so we’ve experience of moving almost anything you can imagine – from zoological specimens to fibreglass elephants! But we offer a lot more than a same day courier service. We’ve developed our reputation on the strength of our team of experienced, motivated drivers to provide a range of specialist services, including:
Exhibition support
We will not only take and bring back your stand – our team will set up and dismantle your equipment.

Refrigerated transport
We can provide the transport to deliver chilled/perishable foodstuffs anywhere in the country.

Flatpack collection, delivery and assembly
If putting up your own shelves puts you off buying from Ikea, John Lewis, Argos, Habitat and the rest – help is at hand!
We will arrange to collect your item of furniture, deliver it and assemble it for you – at a time to suit you.

UK airport runs
Airport parking charges may make that bargain trip not such a good deal.
Perhaps you’d like to fly from Gatwick but can’t face driving all that way.
Unwilling to leave your car so long?
Actus provides the solution. One of our drivers will take you (night or day) and get you to any airport in the UK on time, unstressed and ready for your flight. He’ll be waiting on your return. Actus airport runs – the stress-less, cost effective way to begin and end your overseas trip.
Vehicle collection and delivery
We collect and deliver a range of vehicles, including classic and vintage cars and vehicles for Department of Transport inspection anywhere in the country or abroad. We also offer a towing service for caravans, boats, horse boxes etc.

Multiple destination collection, labeling and distribution
We have expertise in managing complex distribution projects.  Actus has the resources and experience to help if you have a large number of items that need collecting, collating, labeling and distributing.
For example, an international mineral conglomerate asked Actus to collect, collate and label 300 bottles of wine from various UK sources. We then air freighted the packaged consignments to more than 120 worldwide destinations.
 
Antique collection and delivery
If you’ve just bid over the phone for a valuable antique you’ll want the assurance that it will be collected and delivered with the utmost care. Actus regularly transports antiques and other precious or fragile items. Our experienced drivers use harnesses and padded materials to ensure a secure, safe journey. We can insure any item.

Car auctions
We collect and deliver to and from sites throughout the country, working with two of the largest vehicle auction houses in the UK.
