Mike Ponsonby is the Grandson of Denis Ponsonby who founded D. J. Ponsonby Ltd in 1962 with a Standard Ensign Van. Grandad Denis died in October 1996, but his memorable stories remain to this very day, with many humorous tales of profitable business activities in the interim years.
Mike A. Ponsonby wanted to follow in his Grandfathers great footsteps and decided to form his own company on 3rd April 2003. As such, Mike has steadily grown M. A. Ponsonby Ltd into a high profile company with a fleet of 15 Scania trucks and 30 specialised trailers.
The Company is committed to Safety, Customer Service and excellent timekeeping, further strengthening the ongoing success of the business and continuing the legacy of Denis Ponsonby.

OUR CORE VALUES
WRITTEN BY MIKE PONSONBY
At M.A. Ponsonby, we operate a modern fleet of 44 tonne (GCW) Scania tractor units. These have been selected and specified with safety, fuel economy and environmental effects in mind. All vehicles are fitted with satellite tracking for constant vehicle movements and updates.
Our wide variety of trailers are maintained to strict standards. They include flat, step-frame and low loader trailers and other variants suitable for specialist customers with abnormal loads in crane loading, railway operations, tracked vehicles and the construction industry. Our trailers are capable of dealing with a very wide range of loads and customer circumstances, as the photographs indicate.
We recognise the benefit to our customers of helpful, well-presented drivers delivering their goods. All our drivers wear our uniform. They are issued with personal protective equipment as the loads demand. All our drivers are contactable by hands-free in-cab phones. This enables us to update them with our customer's requirements as necessary and maintain early morning and overnight schedules.
We are committed to excellence in customer service for all our clients.
