Merritts have been providers of Specialist Transport & Heavy Haulage services for over ninety years.
We are able to undertake and coordinate all types and sizes of specialist transport work including simple in-gauge loads to more complex notifications, road closures and European deliveries. Our service extends to covering all necessary paperwork for both UK and European deliveries.
Our fleet comprises semi low loaders, standard low loaders and wafer deck low loaders capable of carrying loads of up to 80Te as well as crane trailers, flatbeds and curtain siders. We have recently invested heavily in a pristine fleet of Scania crane vehicles and tractor units to ensure that our fleet is always at the forefront of our marketplace for image, functionality and reliability.
In addition to our low loader fleet, our company is highly skilled in load rigging and moving. We have in house equipment and expertise to lift, handle and install items of all sizes weighing up to 200Te, enabling us to provide you with lifting and heavy haulage solutions for all of your load moving requirements.
Our specialist transport operation is based in Nottinghamshire and provides a central location from which to service the UK. Our site is based over a four acre area and comprises six warehouses and a large expanse of yard. Merritts’ facilities include:
– Fully secure with CCTV coverage across the site
– High Density concrete yard specifically installed for heavy haulage movements
– 100,000 sqft of storage area
– Warehouses with 10m headroom for high and large loads
– Lifting facilities to 200Te
We are therefore also able to offer storage services for specialist transport loads that cannot be delivered immediately. This can be offered as an extension to our transport and haulage services without cost as part of a contract if required.
All Specialist Transport and Heavy Haulage services are provided in line with RHA Conditions of Carriage 1998, RHA Special Conditions for Carriage of Abnormal Indivisible loads 1995 and CMR Conditions of Carriage. A copy of these documents is available on request.
