Our Wide load Escorting Service

One of the services we offer here at Site Movements UK is Wideload Escorting, which we conduct when a load is wider than 9 feet and 6 inches. If this is the case, we are fully qualified to transport the load to our client’s desired position, safety and professionally.

Due to regulations on wide load escorting, our service is essential to many companies that need to transport goods around the country. Most importantly, if a wide load isn’t managed properly, it could be very dangerous, the load could fall and break or be a cause of a road accident.
