About Us

About Us

D.C Merrett is a family-run business that offers a variety of services including heavy haulage and vehicle & equipment maintenance. We also provide support to the wastewater industry that extends from small domestic requirements to services for larger organisations such as Severn Trent.

We’ve served the Gloucestershire area for decades, providing the commercial & domestic sector with professional services that take care of any issue quickly & efficiently. Our time in the industry has given us a rich wealth of experience & knowledge.

From our dedication to providing a quality service to always advising our customers on the best options, we’re committed to providing environmental services that get the job done!

Based in Gloucestershire, DC Merrett was started by local born Dave Merrett who comes from an agricultural background. Working as an Apprentice Heavy Plant Fitter, Dave often spent his weekends and evenings mending machinery.

After purchasing his trusted Escort van for £50, he soon left his role and pursued working as a self-employed mechanic. The business grew and so did a loyal custom base.

With the growth of his business, Dave needed to purchase a lorry to help transport back machinery to the workshop. His lorry was in bits when he first bought it but, with hard-work and dedication, he managed to get the lorry working well.

The first workshop was in Frampton Court Estate, where he and one other employee worked hard to build a great reputation all whilst providing a brilliant service.

There was always a variety of customers, which gave Dave the opportunity to learn a lot about other sectors within the industries such as waste disposal. With this in mind, he grew DC Merrett further by extending his services.

Moving to their new workshop in 1994 and with his beloved wife and 4 daughters by his side, this family run business has seen a great deal of success.

Providing services for Severn Trent and friends, DC Merrett outgrew its small workshop and further developed on the property.

The Merrett family still run the business to this day.

What makes DC Merrett stand out amongst its competitors is that the business is heavily focused on understanding customer’s needs and fulfilling their requirements quickly. With this customer service focus and highly-dedicated team of experts, DC Merrett grew to become what it is today.

What We Do

Environmental Services

We provide quality services to commercial & domestic clients. Whilst we’re well equipped for septic tank clearance & sewage disposal, we are also able to offer environmental services such as drain jetting. We also offer Tankering and Vactor services too. D.C. Merrett is your number one solution when it comes to anything to do with environmental services.

Heavy Haulage

Our team has years of experience planning and executing our heavy haulage services. We can prepare, load and transport your consignment to where it needs to be. We can also carry out any necessary preparation for machines being exported, including dismantling equipment where appropriate. Abnormal loads legally require pilot/escort vehicle, which we can provide with our fully trained and experienced team.

Equipment/Vehicle Maintenance

Our extensive operations yard provides secure storage, full workshop facilities and the latest diagnostics technology. Our mechanics & technicians are trained to a factory standard ensuring that they’re providing you with the best service possible. Our facilities are well equipped, ensuring that your machinery can be kept in top condition by our fully certified staff, both on or off-site.

As a CPA member, we follow best practice guidance that covers health & safety as well as legal requirements. We also have access to a team that provides support that helps us keep up-to-date with industry standards.
