Abnormal Load Escort Serves offers a pilot/escort vehicle service that is second to none. With over 12 pilot/escort vehicle on call, we can supply as many pilot/escorts vehicle that are required.

We can also arrange a second man in the pilot/escort vehicle if required saving the haulier time and money. All our drivers have been involved with the haulage industry at one time or another & and will assist if necessary with the loading & offloading of abnormal loads

We recognize the importance of Escort role in complying with legal & safety requirement and as a result when notifying the movement of an abnormal load we provide the police upon request with self-certificate and/or other evidence showing that we comply with Highways Agencies Code of Practice (Self-Escorting of Abnormal Loads and Abnormal Vehicles).
