Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd has been a market leader in the heavy haulage industry for over forty years. We provide the complete, professional service to our customers to ensure their load is transported in a safe and timely manner.
Strictly speaking, any abnormal load follows the following guidelines:
- Mass weight of over 44,000 Kilograms
- Width of over 2.9 metres
- Rigid length of more than 18.65 metres
- Axle load of more than 10,000 kilograms – 11,500 kilograms dependent on whether it’s a driving or non-driving axle.
Each time an abnormal load is transported across the UK it’s a legal requirement to adhere to the government’s rules and regulations. Chris Bennett prepare the route and all necessary documentation in order to apply to all local authorities as part of the planning process. We work with local authorities and police forces across the country, making sure that our vehicles cause as little inconvenience to other road users as possible.
At Chris Bennett, we are able to move all manner of abnormal loads due to our vast experience in the sector as both a team and as individuals. All of our trailer and vehicle hires come with experienced low loader drivers to provide the best abnormal load delivery you can find. Alongside our abnormal load haulage, we use reliable escort companies, which are fully equipped in accordance with present legislation, to aid the smooth running of your transportation project. Behind the scenes, our friendly transport planning team will deal with the whole package, including liaising with the police and local authorities, submitting movement orders and if necessary we can provide a route survey.
All abnormal loads can generally be transported using one of our low and semi-low loader trailers – all of which have rear steer axles, or one of our low loader vehicles with remote control steering to assist with access to more difficult sites. Our semi low loaders can carry loads of up to 75 tonnes and 96ft in length. Similarly, our low loader vehicles are extendable up to 40ft but with an additional payload of 95 tonnes.

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.
