Today UCT have a modern fleet of Volvo Trucks “Your Total Transport Solution” One of W M Reids First Trucks The old Commer outside the "Luggate" The old Sterling Leyland Comet in Cromwell

It was William Reid (Jr) of Luggate who first  wanted to get a truck, but his father William Reid in Arrowtown, who was the boss, disagreed. That decision proved to be a costly one when other operators in the area made the transition to motorised transport. When they did finally decide to buy trucks they brought two second hand Sterlings. With constant reliability problems the decision was made to return to horse drawn transport. In 1916 William Reid purchased two brand new Commer Dennis’s with a top speed of 12 mph on solid tyres and 18 mph on pneumatic.
