Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd not only provide you with the trailer and vehicle to carry your abnormal loads but the escort vehicles as well. Our in-house fleet of escort vehicles guarantees you with a safe and compliant delivery when transporting your payload from A to B.
Whilst legislation does not contain any requirement for an abnormal load to be escorted, standards do exist in regards to notifying the movement of any abnormal load to local authorities. Police forces now encourage private escorting services of such loads and that’s where we come in. Our escort vehicles all comply to the Highways England Code of Practice, for lighting and marking for abnormal load self-escorting vehicles operating guidelines, stating that the vehicles must be of a conspicuous colour to other road users and pedestrians and must also have flashing warning beacons as well as the obligatory lighting requirements of any vehicle.
All of our escort vehicles are fully equipped in accordance with present legislation, ensuring that all of our escorts are carried out to the highest standard. Our experienced and trained team have over 40 years of valuable knowledge within the industry and are always on hand to help you through your transport and haulage project. All our escort drivers are fully trained and work to the Highways Agency Code of Practice for the escorting of abnormal loads.
