Two truck drivers fired by the crooked trucking firm they worked for start their own company. Their former boss, worried about the competition, tries everything he can to drive them out of business, from sending his pretty daughter to seduce them to having his henchmen sabotage their trucks.

This 1930s quota quickie stars Jimmy Hanley as nice guy truck driver Dick Benson who with his pal Alf Higgins (Wally Patch) stop to give a stranded woman a lift one night and then later gets involved in an accident with young lady's car who turns out to be their boss's daughter and they soon get the sack.
They set up their own haulage company with financial backing from Tony Spinelli (Julian Vedey) an Italian restaurant owner. They quickly find success but their former boss is losing business from the new upstarts and begins a deliberate sabotage campaign to undermine them.
Dick meanwhile quickly loses interest in the business now that he has some money and starts to get romanced by the woman who got them the sack.
This a very low budget film, it is all just a few sets, some stage shooting and that is it. The film starts of well enough but then loses it way. It seems the script was quickly written and makes little sense.
The climax is Dick and Tony delivering equipment in the fog to help rescue stranded miners in a flooded mine as their rivals plan to thwart them.
