From a shelf under the stairs at their home - John and Lucy Cowler inaugurated Advance Movement Services. This momentous occasion happened in spring 1986, and commenced what was to become a truly honest and professional family-run business with an old fashioned emphasis on integrity and true customer care. Initially the concept was to service local business, predominately utilising a U.K distribution service of parcel deliveries both next day and/or economy levels. Turnover for the first week of trading wasn't encouraging - a princely sum of £17.50 to be exact.

However, undeterred, both John and Lucy had a firm belief that they could offer their customers an honest, open and personal service to each and every client, which is as true today as it was then. Their beliefs and endeavours proved correct and the client base increased 10-fold within the first 18 months.
