About Us

Established in 1924 as a haulage business servicing the companies of Lancashire. JR Ashworth & Sons Limited evolved into a high-quality hire company, now known as Rentruck. Since 1924, the company has undergone many changes to its structure. However, throughout these changes it has never lost sight of the heritage, values and personal touches it was born with. We are proud of our history and we are still a family run business to this day.
