Steward Transport, a hugely successful block haulage company and one of the largest in the UK, is based in Kent. Due to our proximity to Surrey, we receive a lot of business from customers who live in and around the county. However, our brick haulage company offers full nationwide coverage and can even travel worldwide. On this page, we answer a handful of questions we frequently receive regarding our road haulage services. Have a different question for us? Contact us on 01892 835 067.
WHAT KIND OF MATERIALS DO YOU STORE AND TRANSPORT?
Most commonly, we transport and store bricks and blocks of all varieties. But we’re happy to handle any type of construction material: tile, slate, marble – anything you can think of. Our brick haulage company has the technical expertise and experience required to properly transport even the most brittle of construction materials, within Surrey and across the UK.
The materials we transport come from all over the world and many have unique qualities. When you select us as your block haulage company, you can rest assured that expensive and rare materials imported from India, Asia or Europe won’t be damaged or lost in transit.
WHAT KIND OF VEHICLES DO YOU USE FOR BRICK HAULAGE?
Our diverse road haulage fleet includes a number of 6-wheel rigid vehicles which boast rear mounted cranes, a carrying capacity of 16 tonnes and a length of just 9.4m. They’re the smallest member of our fleet, but highly effective. Then we have our 8-wheel rigid vehicles, which are slightly longer and have a carrying capacity of 18.5 tonnes.
The bulk of our fleet consists of drawbar vehicles, which also feature mounted cranes, as well as attachable trailers. They are the definition of versatile and can be used for all sorts of brick and block haulage jobs, from smaller undertakings to mammoth tasks. Finally, we have our Moffett vehicle. This can carry 27 tonnes and comes with a forklift attached to its rear. This helps with transporting materials around smaller Surrey building sites and premises.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU OVER A RIVAL BLOCK HAULAGE COMPANY?
You will struggle to find another brick haulage company which has been in operation since 1968. Over the course of our rich and diverse history, we’ve learned a lot about the road haulage industry. We’ve seen competitors come and go and kept up to date with technological advancements as they’ve changed the face of the industry.
You might wonder how we’ve managed to not only stay afloat in a very competitive industry, but also thrive and grow to the size we have. The main reason is customer care, which we place a massive emphasis on. It’s important for us to build long-lasting relationships with both individuals and companies around Surrey, so we ensure we are always on-time, our storage facilities are safe, and our “Final Link” service is convenient.
