Welcome to John Manners Transport

Europe’s largest recoverer and dismantler
of Combine Harvesters and Agricultural Machinery

Who is Manners Transport?

We are a farm-based family business, specialising in recovering and recycling combine harvesters and other large agricultural machinery. For 30 years we have been at the forefront of recovering agricultural plant throughout the UK. We also offer a comprehensive haulage service with our fleet of modern heavy goods vehicles. Our specialist low loading trailers give us the facility to transport a wide range of goods, whether they are agricultural equipment, bulk haulage, plant and machinery, vehicles or boats. We have experience in dispensation for wide loads and agricultural salvage/recovery work for insurance companies. We also buy and sell hay & straw all over the North East and North West of England and South West Scotland.

Set up by John Manners in 1972, and now operated by sons Fraser and Richard, we not only reduce machinery to re-usable scrap, we are also a successful supplier of spare parts for the largest range of combine harvester models in the country.

We are the largest breakers of combine harvesters in the UK, with a stock of over 350 machines covering all makes.

As a family firm, we are immensely proud of the service we offer and take great pleasure in customer satisfaction. Most of our customers have been using our services for years, because we keep our promises and offer reliability & great value.

Increasingly, farmers turn to us, not just to remove damaged combines, but to keep their operating machines efficient and serviceable. Being farmers ourselves, we understand the importance of receiving parts as quickly as possible, and maintain a maximum delivery of 24hrs within the UK.

“It is imperative that we use a company that offers the highest level of service. We have been
using Manners Transport for the last fifteen years. They are 100 % reliable and have transported
all types of agricultural machinery up to the value of ¼ million pounds. The reason we use
Manners Transport is because they are efficient and totally reliable. The quality of service is
second to none and their drivers are well presented and very conscientious.”

Colin Potts Sales Manager - Rickerby Ltd

We employ in total 11 members of staff and have become, thanks to our experience and expertise, both the longest established agricultural machinery recovery company in the UK and the largest combine breaker in Europe.
