An articulated flatbed trailer is quite literally as the name suggests, an entirely flat, level ‘bed’ with no sides or roof. This permits for fast and simple loading and unloading of products, and consequently, they’re used to transporting large and heavy loads that are not delicate or susceptible to rain. For the transport of abnormal loads, flatbed trucks are ideal for those loads that require more space that is available on a closed body trailer.
Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd operates a varied fleet of trucks which can provide for all your haulage requirements, but the workhorses of the fleet are the Volvo FH tractor units which pull our 45ft flatbed trailers. These trailers are fully equipped with all the necessary equipment to transport your goods safely and securely to its destination and can carry upto 27.5 tonnes. All our drivers are experienced in sheeting and securing loads, ensuring that you don’t need to worry about your cargo. We cover the whole of the UK and can provide a first class service from every corner of the country.
For those longer loads, we can provide extendable flatbeds of upto 98 feet (29.7 metres).
Our drivers have completed Crossrail and Tideway induction courses and as a company we hold a Transport for London FORS Silver accreditation, meaning that we are your ideal provider of transport to the main construction contracts in London.
Chris Bennett are heavy haulage specialists, offering a high quality, reliable service with experience that has been passed down through the family for many years. Take a look at Chris Bennett’s new video here.

Please except my thanks for a hassle free job, we would be very happy you use you again and recommend you to others.
Please send my thanks on to your delivery driver and escort for their help although I did make 4 cups of coffee something I don’t usually do!
I just wanted to email to express my gratitude for the fantastic service that you have provided us over the last couple of months, moving our loads from Ince to Sheffield. This has proven to be a smooth operation and your involvement has certainly enhanced the service, so again thank you. Alan and Andy you have both been so accommodating and you have both provided a great service.
