When you spot a large load on the roads, you will often see an escort vehicle, either just in front or close behind. The main reason for this is to alert other motorists to the presence of a slow-moving or wide vehicle – to ensure they take extra care and give a wide berth, if possible.

In most cases, a vehicle escort isn’t required for haulage in Newcastle, but it merely depends on the goods you’re moving and their end destination.

Vehicle escorts can play a huge part in protecting abnormal loads, including wide loads that hang over the side of the vehicle bed on motorways. An escort vehicle will make drivers aware that part of the second lane may be blocked due to the size of the load in transit, preventing them from clipping the edge of the load when passing. As well as this, they can help to navigate tricky routes (i.e. overhead cables and bridges) – ensuring loads reach their destination safely.

If you need a vehicle escort for haulage in Newcastle, rest assured, the JB Rawcliffe team can take care of the documentation and permits on your behalf – saving you the stress. For more information about vehicle escorts, call 01695 737 880.
