7.5 Tonne Truck

Our 7.5 tonne truck fleet is made up of hard sided (box) vehicles and curtain sided meaning we can accommodate a large variety of loads. Most of our vehicles have a tail lift fitted to the back. These vehicles are available for express and dedicated loads throughout the UK and Europe as well as pre arranged transportation. They can load 10 – 14 pallets (and many more cartons) up to a maximum cargo weight of 2,400kg.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • For continental land transit the hauliers liability to you, the owner of the goods, is calculated at around £8 per KG. Additional insurance up to £10k coverage can be purchased for £20, and for higher value goods we will provide you a bespoke quotation.

  • 'Standard Pallets' are 120x100cm and 'Euro Pallets' are 120x80cm. Anything bigger than this would be classed as oversized or if your goods overhang the pallet (not recommended unless the goods are sturdy) it would also be classed as oversized. If possible it is best to keep the height to a maximum of 220cm as anything taller may not fit through the doors of many standard vehicles. Our oversized pallet quotes are calculated on the exact measurements of your load so you will not pay for more space that you use.

  • Typically 5 working days is a good rule of thumb for most western European countries.
