Committed to providing efficient and reliable services, we make sure we store, package, load and transport goods securely and safely. When undertaking road haulage in Maidstone, there are a number of factors we take into account to provide the best possible service.
As an experienced block haulage company, we make sure every driver adheres to the following measures:
All Steward Transport drivers are properly trained in the protocol for secure loading and unloading. Packaging and loading goods in a suitable and effective manner ensures the safety of our services as well as the protection of your items.
Correct practices we follow as a brick haulage company include: using the right packaging materials and transport machines, such as forklifts, as well as appropriate equipment for keeping materials in place during transportation.
Before starting any journey, it is essential for drivers to thoroughly inspect their vehicles. This includes checking factors such as tyre pressure and oil levels. It is also important to make sure the load is not breaking weight limit laws. Failure to do so can result in considerable safety risks, as well as affecting delivery times.
Safe & Legal Driving Practices

Maintaining concentration is key to preventing accidents. To stay alert and in control, we make sure drivers don’t use mobile phones during the journey and comply with regulations concerning driver hours and breaks.
There are a variety of rules governing road haulage practices and, as a professional brick haulage company, we have an extensive understanding of all laws.
Inefficient planning leads to rushing and reduced safety.
