Great People

"My home and my cottage are both in the Sharbot Lake area. I left early this morning for a court case in Whitby. On route I stopped in Tweed to pick up a coffee at Tim Horton’s. While I was there I had the pleasure of meeting Shelly, one of your drivers. I followed her down to Belleville from Tweed and I must say she represents you and your company well."

Shane Cutler
Cam-Scott Transport Ltd.

"We would like to thank David Brown Transport for hiring good, decent people as their professional drivers.

We were fortunate enough, this past Sunday, to meet Nick.

We were stopped an isolated turnaround on the T.C. Hwy in N.B. struggling to change a blown tire on our R.V. when Nick came to our rescue.

He generously gave of his time (and much needed muscle) to ensure our wheel got changed properly and the damaged tire properly stored in its place.

For all his hard work, the only think he would accept from us was our thank you!

It's comforting knowing that local companies have such great people employed with them.

Thank you David Brown & thank you Nick Green!"
