About us

Two powerhouses of the North East have amalgamated to provide a super slick service. Premier Transport and WB Kerr are now one as part of a multi-million pound deal that utilises a fleet of more than 50 vehicles.

Based in North Tyneside but operating throughout the North East and further afield Premier Transport and WB Kerr have pooled a wealth of experience to launch one of the largest fleets of luxury cars and coaches in the area.

From humble beginnings…

Established in 1997 with only one vehicle, Premier Transport have grown through hard work and determination and now carry out school transport and other work on behalf of North Tyneside, Newcastle and Northumberland County Council as well as two NHS hospital shuttle service’s that run 365 days of the year.

WB Kerr has an even longer history. It came into being in 1958 when the owners Grandfather, William B. Kerr, set up the company and it has remained in family hands ever since.

WB Kerr have specialised in bigger coaches, which means the two companies merging dovetail perfectly.

All maintenance of vehicles of the fleet are carried out at the purpose built workshop to ensure maximum comfort and safety.

All of our staff, from our receptionists, call handlers and drivers to our transport managers are highly experienced. We ensure that they offer first class customer service and that they are professional and courteous at all times.

Our drivers are always uniformed and smartly presented. We offer a choice of male or female drivers, all of whom are fully qualified and CRB checked. Our customers can be confident that they are in good hands.

We take pride not only in the presentation of our staff but also our vehicles. Every vehicle goes through strict checks and regular servicing to make sure it’s safe, clean and in top condition.
