As one of the world's largest producers of quality wood flooring, with a proud heritage dating back to 1847, it is vital that the partners we work with are able to match our high standards for quality and professionalism. Working with Southern Motor Contracts has been a revelation; their ability to understand our requirements, manage our vehicles and build in the flexibility to change and grow our company fleet has enabled us to concentrate our efforts on developing the business rather than spending time and effort on non-productive activities. With their attention to detail, pleasant attitude and customer focus, I would have no hesitation at all in recommending SMC to other companies and individuals
