BHL is a family run company with over 40 years experience, we believe there is no better illustration of our capabilities than our work itself. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and “hands on” approach. We believe our personal ambition, business interest, hard work and “can do” attitude gives us the edge over our competitors. With a dedicated team we can offer commercial relocation and transport solutions to suit your needs with a minimum business downtime. We service large companies, corporations, universities and colleges, and provide a full spectrum of services ranging from complete Project Management of a large scale relocation, provision of in house “Move & Churn” teams, specialist equipment transportation, laboratory relocations, office furniture sourcing and installation, storage facilities, bespoke crate services and international shipping. Our family business work ethic is important to us, and the vision demonstrated to us by William Charles Coleman when the business was founded, is still at our core…
The journey began in 1970 , when William Charles Coleman started his own paper waste disposal business, with simply himself and a vehicle. As the business grew it moved into the General Haulage sector and in 1974 William was joined by his son, Bill Coleman, and together they established the Limited Company Billcole Haulage (Stevenage) LTD – BHL. BHL adapted their services in 1976 and began an Export Packing service mainly focusing on family relocations on UK Military bases for transport and shipment worldwide.
In 1982 the business began to advance into other commercial sectors, realigning its services to mirror changes in business needs, this included the provision of vehicle mounted cranes for steam boiler deliveries, for the Dry Cleaning Industry. In 1988, BHL gained a substantial contract with one of the largest contemporary Gym Equipment suppliers for delivery and installation of machinery nationwide.
In 1993, BHL approached a large pharmaceutical research site in the local area and promoted their commercial removals and transport services and subsequently gained a regular contract of “Move & Churn” works for the site. It is during this time that our knowledge and expertise grew not only in the provision of office and laboratory relocations, but in move management processes and Project Management skills. This soon became an area of work in which we thrived and with the addition of a new family generation entering the business, bringing new qualifications and ambition, the expansion into Project Management grew rapidly.
