At Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd. we keep a fleet of flatbeds ready for action. With a variety of sizes available we match the capacity and expense to the size of the load to be carried, ensuring that the vehicle we use is perfectly suited to the task at hand. Whatever the size or weight of the load to be transported, we will make sure the perfect flatbed does the job.
When you need large quantities move with the minimum of fuss, our rigid flatbeds will be able to take the strain. With load capacities of 3500kg to a massive 15000kg we have the varied rigid vehicle fleet to meet your requirements.
Our friendly team of transport planners are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide all the advice you need to ensure that your goods are delivered in a timely and efficient manner anywhere in the country. All our vehicles are FORS Silver and Crossrail compliant, meaning that we are your number one choice for deliveries into London.
Our fleet of 6 x 2 66 and 17 plate Volvo FH12 tractor units make use of our stock of trailers, most of which have been extended to 45 feet in length. All trailers are supplied with sheets and load restraints as well as fall restraints for working at height. We can provide trailers to suit any goods and our equipment includes “goal posts” and twistlocks. Our general haulage articulated trailers can carry a payload of up to 27.5 tonnes, including containers, plant, steel and timber.
We have flatbed trailers which extend from 45 to 98 feet which allows us to carry long loads such as telecommunications masts and steel beams.
All our vehicles carry tarpaulin sheets, timbers, goalposts/stanchions which can incorporate fall arrest equipment and a vehicle satnav and tracking system providing real-time information on the location of our trucks at any time of day or night.
Although our 7.5 tonne flatbeds are the smallest of our fleet of vehicles, they are capable of carrying wide and varied payloads. Available for loads of up to 3.5 tonnes, these vehicles are the little workhorses of our fleet and are available as flatbeds or tautliners, the latter being capable of either side or rear loading and are ideal for small machinery or palletised equipment.
As with all Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd’s varied fleet of vehicles, our 7.5 tonne trucks travel the length and breadth of the country and therefore we are always on the lookout for backloads.
If you have a load anywhere in the country which we might be able to assist with, please call one of our traffic planners on 0161 406 8466 who will be happy to help. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

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.
