About DMS Fleet Services

DMS Fleet Services was established by Rob Gorton in July 2012. Rob’s aim was to provide local haulage companies with a high quality maintenance at a fair price. Working from a mobile support vehicle Rob began to build a trustworthy reputation with many local companies.

Our first commercial garage opened in Oswaldtwistle, Accrington.  In January 2014, following continued growth, DMS Fleet Services moved to a large purpose built heavy goods vehicle repair garage, and this is where we remain. The garage has three full length bays and the capacity to house all types of vehicle, from small vans to large double deck trailers. It is fully fitted with all the latest technology, including state-of-the-art brake roller testing, Truckfile online vehicle safety record management, full TEXA diagnostics and mobile HGV lifters.

We now provide services such as tail-lift servicing, LOLER certification and weight tests. In July 2014 we opened DMS Truck Rentals Ltd and currently have a fleet of eight tractor units which are available for long and short term hire.

Our workforce has expanded and our team now includes another highly skilled HGV technician, who has over 20 years experience working for a main dealer, and a new apprentice. Employing apprentices helps us to ensure our future workforce continues to be the best by providing exceptional hands-on training and sharing with them our value for high quality workmanship.

We can give you a fully comprehensive vehicle maintenance package which can be tailored to suit your needs. We guarantee to take the hassle out of your fleet maintenance and management so that you can concentrate on running your business.
