The Heart of A&M Commercials
A&M Commercials – Used Trucks, Trailers And Plant for SALE
A&M Commercials is a family enterprise based in Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and England. Established by Michael McNally in 1999, A&M Commercials has become one of the largest used truck dealers in the UK and Ireland.
Where it all began…
Back in the early 1990’s Michael McNally started off A&M Transport which involved Transporting perishable foodstuffs from Ireland to European countries like Sweden, Denmark, Germany etc. Starting with his first Lorry at the age of 20, with the hard work and determination to grow A&M Transport over the 9 years Michael increased his fleet by 17 Trucks. A&M Transport ran from a village outside of Armagh called Derrynoose, Northern Ireland.
With the natural flair of buying and selling from a young age Michael then decided to quit transporting and start a new chapter of A&M which was Commercial buying and selling of trucks and trailers. This kicked off in the late 1990’s. Michael and his wife Assumpta took full control of all sides of the business. Assumpta managed the accounts while Michael dealt with the buying and selling of the commercial Vehicles, along with doing all the mechanical side of the business also. On average A&M had 20 Vehicles for sale.
With sales and the demand for used vehicles increasing Michael & Assumpta purchased their second premises in Co. Monaghan in 2003 which is now the head quarters for A&M in Ireland. Due to the business growing A&M employed another Sales man and also 2 garage men to keep everything flowing smoothly. By 2005 the business had increased their stock to 90 Trucks and Trailers.
Across the Water..
Michael spent a lot of time on the road, Going from auction to auction, Visiting business and keeping a tight eye on the market. Michael seen an opportunity to grow A&M Commercials further afield and start a storage depot in England. With a lot of planning and determination to make it a success Michael bit the bullet and went for it. He bought a premises just off the M62, Widne’s. A beautiful sight with easy access to the motorway. Quickly sourcing vehicles to sell Michael soon filled the yard with top quality used vehicles.
