Block Haulage in Derby

What Should You Ask a Brick Haulage Company?

If you own a successful construction firm, you need a brick haulage company that will understand your needs and act at relatively short notice. You have your own schedules and busy work sites to run, so the last thing you need is to worry about your incoming shipment of bricks and other raw materials. This is where our block haulage company comes in. Steward Transport moves the materials you need to anywhere in the UK, whether in Derby or the surrounding towns, cities or regions.

Before you select one brick haulage company over another, make sure you feel confident in the road haulage services they offer. Read on for some of the first questions you might wish to ask to guarantee a reliable brick haulage service.

Do You Cater to My Industry?

Although haulage firms often work closely with members of the construction industry, it’s always a good idea to ask for specific examples. You might also need assistance if you work in engineering, infrastructure, aerospace or any other sector around Derby that requires heavy or abnormal road haulage.

What Vehicles Do You Operate?

You deserve to know that your bricks, blocks, tiles and other materials are with a capable driver. Ensuring that your chosen block haulage company comes fully equipped can reduce hassle later on and will make life easier for you in the longer term. This gives you a chance to ask about the maximum capacity that your chosen brick haulage company can transport across Derby. Some road haulage teams will use a range of vehicles to cater to various industry goods.

Can You Transport Special Items?

Although a block haulage company like Steward Transport will often shift raw materials between locations, there’s no reason to assume their experience stops there. They might also provide a more bespoke road haulage service too. For example, we have adapted to various requests, including the haulage of a small aeroplane without fuss.

What’s Your Planning Process?

A good brick haulage company will plan for poor weather, questionable road conditions and consider your schedule to prevent delays. To ensure you choose the right team in Derby or across the UK, ask about their planning process as well as their vehicle maintenance methods. A well-maintained vehicle will be less likely to break down, so it’s good to know how they approach this task before setting out.

What Are Your Qualifications?

You wouldn’t want a less qualified doctor, so why settle for less when it comes to road haulage? See if the drivers hold the right training before committing to them as your preferred block haulage company. At Steward Transport, we take part in the Safe Urban Driving training scheme, come fully insured, and our crane operators are all ALLMI qualified for moving goods in and out of Derby.

Our brick haulage company is also a recognised member of the FORS Gold Scheme and the Freight Transport Association. Please click through our gallery to view our road haulage team in action.
