The London Area's Experts in Machinery and Plant Haulage

London Plant Haulage have heavy haulage, abnormal load escort and special type haulage services down to a fine art. This a benefit of being in the industry for so long, but it also means we often forget that many of our prospective clients don't know the first thing about machinery haulage. To the uninitiated, sometimes it sounds like we're speaking in code!

To provide some insight into our profession, and to explain what it is that a plant haulage company actually does, our London based team have answered a few frequently asked questions on the services we offer.

Plant Haulage Q&A

What is plant haulage?

Plant haulage and heavy plant haulage involves the transportation of machinery and plant to and from two set points, usually a warehouse and construction or development site. When transporting plant and machinery in and around the London area we use powerful vehicles including a heavy plant low loader.

Sorry, what's a heavy plant low loader?

This vehicle has a low floor and no sides, is usually very long and features multiple sets of tyres. The heavy plant low loader is specifically designed for machinery haulage and is one of the most common types of heavy machinery transporters used in our industry. They can support tens of thousands of kilograms of weight, and are designed with the safety of motorists firmly in mind.

What if I require heavy haulage services, but not for plant or machinery?

Our vehicles are versatile and we can use our heavy plant transporters for all sorts of special type haulage, depending on your situation. Contact us and we'll be able to figure out the best vehicle for the job at hand.

Many of our clients are commercial companies around London who need large quantities of heavy goods transported around the UK. They choose heavy haulage when 4x4 trucks can't handle the load, or when splitting goods into multiple convoys would prove too expensive and inefficient.

Are you able to assist in the transportation of abnormal loads?

Yes, London Plant Haulage can provide an abnormal load escort service. An abnormal load is defined as a vehicle…

  • • Weighing over 44,000kg
  • • With an axle load of over 10,000kg
  • • A width of over 2.9m
  • • A rigid length of over 18.65m

Our plant haulage company can assist by giving advance warning to all relevant authorities who you are legally obliged to inform when transporting an abnormal load. We also employ our heavy haulage vehicles to assist in the abnormal load escort itself, which without professional help can be problematic, especially around a busy city like London!
