We are Liam and Kerry, and along with Tommy the Patterdale Terrier, deliver smokeless fuels, Calor gas, red diesel (gas oil) and other boating consumables along the Bridgewater Canal. We operate under the name of Midlands and Coast Canal Carriers Ltd.
We initially began trading under the name of Longford Canal Services in September 2010, but in June 2018, after 8 years of trading, an opportunity arose to acquire the original company name which Ariel began working for in 1935 and so rebranded our operations to suit.
We operate throughout the year. During the cooler months, generally from September to April, we operate on a fortnightly basis, and if unable to get to you due to stoppages or being frozen in will endeavour to deliver your order by road.. During the summer period we carry out general maintenance and with less demand we move to our 3 weekly schedule. You are also welcome to come and collect any supplies from our base at Preston Brook Wharf, but this must be arranged before hand to ensure we’re there.
We can also carry out unattended deliveries as we accept debit and credit card payments in person and over the phone. Payment by cash and cheque is also available, but we do prefer BACS (direct bank transfer).
To find out where we are and where we’ll be over the next week or so please get in touch.
