Company History

Carpenters Motor Transport is a third generation family owned and operated business.

 Our company began its journey back in 1929 when Joseph Carpenter started a delivery service out of his own house.   With one canvas back truck he made deliveries between Burlington and Middlebury, Vt.   Times were tough then but he established a loyal customer base that has grown many times over through the years.   While there have been many changes and developments in all of those years, the succeeding generations at Carpenters have all stayed close to those founding principals of good business.

Hard work, dedication to a job well done and a personalized level of service are still at the heart of what we do today.

We at Carpenters now operate a full service terminal conveniently located just off I-89 in the fast growing town of Williston just outside of Burlington,Vermontís largest city.

With a fleet of over 30 tractor/trailers and straight trucks Carpenters offers a wide variety of transportation services.  

While our company has grown substantially since itís humble beginnings we still maintain committed to a small business feel where a chat with the owners is just a phone call away.   This business philosophy rooted in family values has served us well through the years by helping us build strong relationships with our customers.   Our core of devoted employees who offer many years of experience in the industry are helping us to make sure that our business mission remains intact which is to offer dependable, honest and affordable transportation service.
