Eddie Stobart Truck Fleet

Updated on September 23, 2014

Eddie Stobart Truck Fleet Legend

Eddie Stobart took over the family business and created a truck empire, what is more remarkable is that he created a brand and made truck driving glamorous. His drivers were expected to dress smartly and every truck had a female name. Drivers were expected to wave back at passer bys.

Eddie Stobart has sadly recently died at the young age of 56 years his brother William had however taken over the firm a few years previously. His trucks have had a song dedicated to them, he has had his own television show.

You can join the Eddie Stobart fan club and buy Eddie Stobart souvenirs and clothes and of course model toys.

Remember there are two Eddie Stobarts father and son , but it is really the son who created the 1000 truck fleet. Eddie Stobart senior survives his son. There is also an Eddie Stobart Train!. Eddie Stobart drivers drive the equivalent of 4 times round the world everyday.

How to spot Eddie Stobart Trucks

Become a Stobbie

Each Eddie Stobart Truck has a female name, though there is rumored to be one male name. Note the name, the truck type. and where you saw it.

Members of Eddie Stobart's fanclub get a full Fleet list and can keep a log of any lorries they've bagged on the website. Get you kids involved so they are less bored on long car journeys.

Eddie spotters need to get a photo, record date and time, get the truck's nick name, fleet number and registration number. Major motorway service stations are the best place to spot the trucks.

These starting adverts have appeared on the side of Eddie Stobart trailers in time for the 2012 European Football Competitions (The Euros). You'd think you'd see more of these adverts that use trucks sides but in fact hey are quite rare. Perhaps there are worries that drivers could be startled by them!

      Contrary to popular belief, cars are not the only types of vehicles that are transported. Often times, heavy machinery such as that used in construction as well as boats, RVs, trailers and motorcycles are among some of the other types of vehicles you can find on the backs of car hauling trucks. One of the more popular items that is shipped frequently are exotic or classic cars. Owners of such vehicles will usually opt to use some sort of enclosed car transportation services for the mere fact that doing so helps to protect their classic vehicle from the sometimes rough elements of long road trips. For instance, dust, grit, gravel, and inclement weather are just some examples of elements that a protective car owner may want to shield his or her vehicle from when paying to have it shipped.
