Escort Vehicles for Abnormal Loads

In line with UK regulations, movements which exceed certain dimensions and weights require a escort vehicles in the interest of road safety.

To assist with abnormal load movements, we operate our own private escort vehicles, fully compliant with the guidelines set out by Highways England. Every marked escort vehicle is equipped with signage, light bars and two-way radio communication to ensure direct contact with the AIL (Abnormal Indivisible Load) drivers at all times, and enhance safety on busy road networks.

Our driving team are highly experienced in the movement of all types of abnormal loads throughout the UK. These vehicles are all fitted out to provide the staff with a ‘home from home’ feeling to ensure that nights away from base are no issue. Our escorting service is extended to all transport partners located throughout Europe to provide support and assistance within the UK.

We also offer Route Surveys, Swept Path Analysis and can organise Street Furniture Removal through our Project Management Services.

When you use our Escort Service you can be assured that we will deliver the same standards that we expect for our own vehicles. You can be assured that we can be your trusted partner and will uphold the highest possible standards to make sure your movement goes as planned.
