Agnew Transport is proud to be a local company and takes pride in offering customers the “personal touch” that a larger corporation may not be able to, hence the company catch phrase: “big enough to deliver, small enough to care”. “We have a great team of people with established systems in place to cater for a wide range of cartage. Our experience means we are understanding of business, and customer’s needs, resulting in us providing an efficient quality service.” Big Enough to Deliver – Small Enough to Care
