Who is Lee Smith?

The History that Built a New Company with Established Values

At the age of 20, Lee joined Riverside Commercials Ltd at West Thurrock. The company was owned and operated by his father Ron Smith, who had enjoyed an illustrious career with Leyland, Scania and Volvo before setting up Riverside in 1982.

The company was sold to Hanbury Holdings in 1997 and Lee remained with the business as sales director and linked up with Glyn Davies and the Hanbury team. The business was rebranded as Hanbury Riverside and enjoyed major success in becoming one of the foremost used truck sales operations in the UK.

The business was sold to Asset Alliance Group in 2017 and Lee stayed on as a consultant until 2021. In 2019 he gained the prestigious Commercial Motor: Service to Industry Award, this award recognises outstanding achievement in the industry.

Lee then went on to establish Lee Smith Trading Limited in 2021 and the rest is history.

Why not reach out to him for an exploratory chat? Many new and old contacts have enjoyed interacting with Lee and benefiting from his knowledge, experience and reputation.

What People Are Saying

Image

Infinity Container Logistics began trading in 2017 without any of our own vehicles. We built a close relationship with Lee, and now have a fleet of our own vehicles. He found us the products, agreed a fair and sustainable price, and delivered exactly as promised.

We’ve now moved away from leasing and tasked Lee with finding us vehicles to purchase in tough market conditions. As always, Lee found us vehicles at a price and specification that we desired, and we’ve now taken delivery of some of these vehicles. The order was fulfilled and delivered on time and our drivers are very happy. We will continue to work with Lee for all our future projects. Highly recommended.

I have known and worked with Lee for over 20 years and he has always acted with total professionalism and integrity.

The vehicles we have purchased from him over this period have been competitively priced and thoroughly prepared so that they can hit the road immediately, his attention to detail sets him apart from other truck dealers/suppliers.

I look forward to continuing to buy and sell all the Ralph Davies International Ltd fleet through Lee and his new business. I know he will continue to succeed and look forward to working together for the next 20 years!!

We have dealt with Lee since 2007. He took the time and trouble to get to know us and understand our needs. Even in recent times when trucks were hard to find, he was able to work his magic and source trucks to our specifications when others couldn’t. Nothing is to much trouble.

The Guvnor, second-hand truck sales are Lee’s bread and butter. I have known and worked with Lee for a long time. His reputation precedes him and nobody in the business does it better!
