The company was started in 1926 by Harry Luckett, my Grandfather and my father, David Luckett joined the company in 1958. The company’s haulage business continued and went from strength to strength in the late 60’s and early 70’s working for major names such as Ready Mix Concrete and Schweppes. David purchased the company’s first coach in 1976, choosing to drive it himself. It proved a very enjoyable and successful venture and the second coach was soon on its way. By the mid-80’s the coach fleet had outnumbered the haulage fleet and it was clear which way the company was proceeding.I joined the company in the 1980s, the 3rd generation of Lucketts. Since then the company has grown to a turnover of over £21million per year and employs over 300 people with over 100 vehicles in three operating centres on the South Coast of England.
