PWL (Philip Wareing Limited) was originally established in 1980 and we are a family owned business that began life as a spraying contracting business. PWL has been in operation for over 40 years and has a number of loyal staff who have remained with us for over 35 years of service as well as many of Philip’s original clients who still use and recommend us today.

We are based in Methven near Mt Hutt and are located halfway between the two major ports of Christchurch and Timaru. Our yard and administration buildings are on Line Road and there is a 24 hour unmanned weighbridge, storage and coolstore facilities as well as a Z truckstop on site.

The history of PWL began when Philip was working for Pyne’s as a field rep and saw an opportunity to utilise his agricultural skills and contacts to start his own spraying business operating just one truck. Through his knowledge and understanding of rural requirements, the business quickly expanded to its present form, and we pride ourselves on providing an  individual tailored client service.

Philip’s two sons are now an integral part of PWL with older son Mark Wareing managing the sales arm of the business and Simon Wareing hands on as Operations Manager.

The company also has an interest in three additional transport businesses in the South Island providing a combined fleet of over 200 trucks. This truly means that no job is too big or too small; from carting straw & baleage or logs, through to picking up one carton in Christchurch on our daily freight run. We operate with care and professionalism by ensuring our modern fleet and our drivers are of the highest possible standard. Philip Wareing Ltd is known for its modern fleet which is extremely well maintained due to our own workshop with full time engineers and mechanics.
Safety is paramount and to that end we have a  full time driver trainer and all trucks are equipped with the latest technology including onboard driver cams.
