About Us Peter Bassett founded Peter Bassett commercial vehicle spares in 1978 with the company spending the first few years trading from a wooden shed that he rented. In 1983 they moved into a 3,500 square foot warehouse in Gawcott, before in the late 1990s buying Universal Truck and Trailer Ltd based in Witney in Oxfordshire. In 2016 the company moved the Buckinghamshire arm of their business into a new purpose built 7000 square foot premises at Scires Farm in Bufflers Holt. Both offices operate separately but do still regularly exchange parts to provide an even quicker and efficient service to our customers. Due to our free delivery service within a 30 mile radius of our depots, we cover an area of over 7300 square kilometres.
