In 1976 Alan Franklin began transporting antiques between England and the Continent in an attempt to satisfy an increasing demand for specialised transport.
Many years on, Alan Franklin Transport Ltd has vehicles travelling throughout the Continent delivering and collecting antiques, works of art and personal and household effects.
Throughout the years we have earned an excellent reputation in the antique and removal worlds for offering a solid service based on dependability, reliability and trustworthiness.
Our three offices and warehouses in England and France, provide a firm geographical base and with our many years of experience, we at Alan Franklin Transport Ltd are positive that we can satisfy your individual requirements whatever they may be.
Our head office and warehouse complex is situated in Verwood, England on the Hampshire/Dorset border, seventy-five miles to the South West of London.
We have two offices and warehousing facilities in France; one is conveniently situated in the heart of the flea market in Paris and one in L'Isle sur la Sorgue - the centre for antiques in the South of France.
Our offices are staffed by people speaking seven different languages which enables us to communicate with the majority of the countries that we deal with.
Using a wide range of modern vehicles manned by drivers experienced in European travel we can guarantee a fast and efficient door to door service whether we are transporting one item or a lorry load in and around the UK and Europe. We also collect and ship goods by air or sea-freight to places farther afield such as USA, Australia and South Africa.
