Our 50 plus vehicle fleet can offer a wide range of flexible haulage options. Vehicles we offer for hire: Curtain sided tail-lift transit vans; 7.5 tonne tail lifts, 18 tonne curtain sided tail-lifts and 26 tonne curtain-sided rigids with tail-lifts; 44 tonnes curtain-sided artic and double-deckers.

Each of our vehicles contains tested freight-restraining systems with air suspension which helps protect your goods.

All vehicles are maintained and are regularly renewed to meet and exceed current legislative and environmental standards.

This provides a pleasant working environment for our drivers as well as ensuring our professional standards are maintained.

RHA Conditions of Carriage

All freight carried within the UK is moved under 'The Road Haulage Association Conditions of Carriage'. A copy can be downloaded from our download page.

This is a standard form of conditions which sets out the haulage contract including insurance liability. regardless of how much your freight is worth, the maximum level of standard cover is £1.30 per kg of lost/damaged freight or £1,300 per tonne. This is calculated against the weight of damaged or unsalvageable freight and is based upon cost value and not selling value.

We can arrange higher levels of cover for all consignments as a blanket cover of movements, if this is of interest please phone the office for further details.

With smaller consignments of 1 to 3 pallets using the pallet network these can be delivered on a next day basis to most of the UK.

Our in-house groupage service means we can deliver any number of pallets anywhere in the UK on one of our own vehicles if the volume of groupage allows.

Dedicated vehicle hire is available on all sized vehicles.
