Out of Gauge Container and Modular Building Transport

Potteries Heavy Haulage frequently complete Out of Gauge Container and Modular Building Transport. We have experience in transporting high, wide, long, and heavy containerised buildings. Importing and exporting abnormal loads to Europe and within the UK. The team have a varied experience of moving modular buildings of varying dimensions and weights across Europe.

We have numerous clients contacting the team to find out what is possible when moving modular buildings. All hauliers and transport companies have different limitations. Knowing this piece of knowledge is crucial when other inform you of what is possible and how to accomplish the project. The limitations and solution could arise from the limitations of their equipment, knowledge, or a combination of both. Abnormal load transport is a specialist industry where all providers have varying degree of trailers, technology and experience.

Using our equipment and knowledge your cargo could be moved via the UK motorway safely. Other transport providers may over specify a solution using high load routes or barges due to limitations with their fleet. We have the equipment tailored to both transporting throughout Europe and the UK. This is important when trying to minimise overall height and axel weights in Europe with different road restrictions for weight, length, height and width.

We have worked with various clients to help them design their product to ensure it can clear structures and be transported economically. Working with their teams and offering them solutions to improve their product where others have said it is not possible.

If we can not help you with our specialist fleet, we will either help you organise the movement with our trusted network of hauliers or provide you with an appropriate transport company or freight forwarder. You can trust us to ensure you receive the most appropriate advice and service.

We are here to help if you have exceptionally high or heavy products and require transport. Perhaps you need help transporting a containerised plant room which exceptionally heavy and too high and long for other operators to transport safely.
