Our Fleet

We have a fleet of commercial vans and larger vehicles available for deliveries and collections throughout the UK and Europe.

  • SPRIINTER VANS – Standard & XLWB

Sprinter Vans

These vehicles are ideal for transporting smaller consignments, dedicated deliveries, fragile goods or deliveries where restricted access limits the size of vehicle we can send in. Where a vehicle has a tail lift, heavier and bulkier items can be loaded with a low loader/pump truck which avoids the need for a tail lift or a moffit.

7.5 tonne and 18 tonne rigid vehicles – with tail lift

7.5 tonne and 18 tonne rigid vehicles – with tail lift.

Transit / Luton Van approximate rate per mile £1.80

7.5tn approximate rate per mile £2.20

Please note that these rates will be affected if a ferry crossing is involved or if the origin / destination is far away from commercial areas.


This is when a driver will work from job to job effectively living on the road for several days at a time and eventually working their way back towards their home destination. As a part or our network driver will often be able to pick up work to complement this style of work.

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.

  • As the roads and ferries can be unpredictable we do not guarantee delivery timescales however we do work hard to ensure rapid transit where required.

  • Yes. To ensure smooth transit it may be necessary to discuss access and timings with our service personnel and we can ensure that a tail lift vehicle is used where required.

  • '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.

  • For domestic pallets and Exports, we can sometimes collect same day If booked before 10am. On most occasions though collection will be next working day and for Imports it is best to allow 2 days.

  • Yes (depending on the distance). This will require a dedicated vehicle.

  • Yes. Engines or vehicle parts must be fully drained of any oil or fuel prior to transport as spill and leaks can create a slip hazard and a fire risk.

  • Yes, often we can provide an online tracking link. If this is not available our service personnel can keep you updated on transit.

  • If your goods can be moved by hand (small and lightweight) or by forklift then it may not be necessary to put them onto a pallet. Typically though a pallet is essential for transit.

  • Kerbside refers to the position and availability of goods. Collections must be from a place accessible by the vehicle and goods will not be move further once off the vehicle.
