A bit of History
The family business started transporting cattle in 1946, when Mr Alf Stuart bought a second hand Dodge.
We then expanded with Roy and Ross joining the business after leaving school. In 1968 they bought a new Volvo F88, one of the first in the country. They used this F88 to pull the first double deck articulated cattle transporter in Great Britain, which was designed by the Stuarts.
In 1977 we expanded again this time becoming Stuart’s Commercials ‘the official Volvo Truck Dealer for Devon’. The business flourished under the guidance of Ross Stuart.
In 1990 Roy’s son Troy joined the partnership. Later the workshop was extended by another five bays and more personnel were employed.
In 2004 Stuart’s were given the opportunity to take over the Volvo Dealerships at Saltash and Redruth in Cornwall.
This done, they went about building a new workshop in Plymouth to relocate the Saltash depot, and carried out improvements at the Redruth depot.
Today Stuart’s Truck and Bus cover the South West peninsula from Bridgwater and Bridport through to Land’s End.
We’re proud to fly the Volvo flag in the Southwest
