Heavy Haulage & Abnormal Loads

SG Haulage are the experts in heavy haulage, wide load haulage and abnormal load transport.

Specialists in transporting heavy and abnormal loads

Whether you need to transport a gas turbine, modular home, or even a large yacht, you don’t need to look further than us.

We are confident in our ability to meet your heavy job specifications. We offer a variety of heavy haulage trucks, including trailers, semi loaders, step frames, and low loaders with ramp and axle extenders. 

We have successfully transported a Potato Grader to an agricultural show, as well as demolition equipment to construction sites. 

Whatever your heavy job entails, we assure you that we will plan the most efficient and reliable route using one of our heavy haulage trucks. Trust in our expertise and experience to get the job done with confidence.

For all our heavy haulage we carry out risk assessments, lift plans, and method statements, and we will take care of every aspect of the heavy haulage process for you so that you know it is being dealt with competently and safely.

What constitutes an abnormal load? The weight and size would place your cargo in this category. Your cargo load would have more than 44,000kg or an axle load of more than 10,000kg. The size of your cargo load would have a width of more than 2.9 metres or a length greater than 18.65 metres. 

If your proposed load falls into this category, we are your first choice to help you transport your abnormal load across the UK or further afield.

With a 23-strong fleet of vehicles designed to handle varied cargoes, including wide load haulage, we are experts in heavy haulage and abnormal load transport.

We always conduct risk assessments, method statements and lift plans, so you can rest assured that the professionals are transporting your abnormal and wide loads at all times. We strive to meet our customers’ demands as quickly as possible, which is helped by the fact that we already hold the majority of the permits needed for abnormal and wide load transport.
We have two escort vehicles available for larger abnormal loads and specialist haulage. To minimise disruption to other road users, we negotiate suitable routes and times with the notifiable parties. We’ll take care of the whole haulage process for you, including creating risk assessments, method statements and lift plans.

Efficient arrivals through Electronic Service Delivery

The ESDAL is the Electronic Service Delivery for Abnormal Loads. When we transport abnormal and wide loads, the Highways Agency states that we have to notify the police, highway and bridge authorities. To help streamline the process and ensure your cargo is delivered quickly and efficiently, we use this system electronically to notify all parties. This innovative mapping system also helps plot the most efficient route to deliver your abnormal or wide load on time.
