Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd have an ever expanding fleet of mixed rigid and articulated vehicles. Combined with our modern, efficient 6 x 2, 6 x 4 and 8 x 4 tractor units, our fleet of 65 trailers allow us to offer a solution to our customers’ transport needs. From moving machinery, heavy plant or simply palletised equipment, our trained and qualified team are capable of taking on almost any project required.
Our fleet of trailers is continuously updated and replaced as part of our company policy. All trailers have now been extended to 45 feet in length, allowing them to carry up to 160 tonnes. From our 45ft flatbed tautliners to our axel power steered semi-low loaders, Chris Bennett’s trailers can help you transport anything from general haulage to abnormal loads across the UK.
Our trailers include:
With three types of Axel Power Steered Semi-Low Loader trailers, built to the highest specification by Nooteboom, we can provide you with perfect solution to transporting the likes of machinery and heavy items. Each trailer is extendable with the longest extending from 32ft to 96ft long. Our Extendable Low Loader trailers also provide an excellent solution to transporting those larger items from factory to customer or to the port for export.
Chris Bennett also have a Power Steered Flat Bed Trailer to add to the fleet. With a payload of up to 50 tonnes, these extendable flatbed trailers reach up to 95ft when extended to their full capacity. For larger tracked or wheeled equipment, we have Extendable Beam Trailers which can carry a payload of up to 100 tonnes. These beam trailers have been converted from an ordinary low loader with the machine straddling the beam to enable a greater height carrying capacity.
Our Tautliners or curtainsiders are capable of being loaded from the side or the rear, with sliding roofs, side-curtains and solid rear doors. Tautliners provide you with a highly flexible option for loading and unloading equipment such as palletised goods or machinery that are in need of being kept dry.

Many of our drivers are experienced and qualified in loading and unloading all kinds of loads, taking great pride in the loads that they carry. All of our staff have undertaken the driver CPC courses, including those covering securing loads and working at height, ensuring that your load is safe in our hands.

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.
