Nortons Hiab Services Ltd

Abnormal & Long loads Hiab haulage services UK Transport

Nortons offer professional long loads haulage service, covering all areas of long and abnormal goods.

We have moved many different long and abnormal goods since our start in 2007.

We have our own escort vehicles, which ensures the transit time is reduced as we do not have to wait along the route for local police escort vehicles.

A Long Load is classed as a Load with a rigid length of more than 18.65 metres.

Our Wide Load Exemption Notices cover the entire United Kingdom and, where required, we work with the relevant police authorities to plan routes and provide our own escort vehicles.

Nortons are experts in the transportation and movement of all abnormal freight including everything from machinery to portable buildings.

We offer a complete route study, liaising with police and local authorities along the route.
