In 2016 we expanded our haulage services to include Specialist Transport which focuses on the transportation of all types of abnormal loads up to 250 tonnes. This division offers bespoke services including route surveys, movement orders, BE16 special orders, test drives, and swept path analysis.
Our combination of cutting edge technology and a modern fleet ensures we have all the necessary tools to carry out the movement of any abnormal load. With many of our drivers and managers each having 20-30 years’ of heavy haulage experience we guarantee the best service possible and provide our customers with the comfort that everything we do is safety-assessed and 100% compliant with all industry and road traffic regulations.
The division was formed in November 2016 and is led by Scott Proffitt who has over 25 years of Heavy Haulage expertise from driving and management to strategic planning. With Scott came a team of experienced drivers, each of them possessing over 20 years of knowledge in the industry. All of our drivers began as second men gaining valuable experience in the role before progressing, making them ideally suited to training new drivers wanting to progress from our General Fleet into the Specialist operation.
We have embedded a customer service-driven culture within our business, ensuring that we place our customers at the heart of everything we do. We are completely flexible when it comes to service and we work with our customers to ensure we fully understand their requirements. We undertake regular customer account reviews to ensure we continually meet requirements and provide the best service possible
