If you need professional support for transporting heavy or large goods from your base in Sheffield to different UK and European destinations, then yes, it’s perfect for you.

You may be surprised by how many companies rely on the heavy haulage services of JB Rawcliffe & Sons. We specialise in transporting oversized products from Sheffield to various destinations, both near and far. We have over 45 years of experience working with Sheffield-based clients and, over this time, we’ve become familiar with the surroundings so are therefore able to navigate any route – even the challenging ones.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to price up the delivery of your goods until we know their exact dimensions, the route and the destination. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to heavy haulage in Sheffield, but what we can do is promise to give you the best value for your money.

Even if you’ve found a cheaper quote from another heavy haulage company in the area, wouldn’t you prefer to avoid any risks associated with a cheaper service? At JB Rawcliffe & Sons, we prioritise safety and efficiency so you can rest assured that your goods will not only arrive on time but safely too.

If you’ve decided that our heavy haulage services are what you need, it’s quite a simple process. The first thing to do is contact us and speak to our friendly team, who will help you every step of the way.

From there, we’ll need to know the following details about your goods:

  • What you need to transport
  • Where we need to collect them
  • Where we need to deliver them
  • Whether you require a tail lift or forklift truck for loading
  • When you require our services

We also require accurate measurements of the goods you need to be transported. So, as well as the information above, give us precise measurements for the height, weight, width and length of your goods. When we know this, we can then choose the best-suited vehicle for the job.

Without knowing all of the details about the goods you need to transport, we cannot say if you need an escort. However, if your goods are an abnormal size, we can transport them and we can arrange a vehicle escort.

The vehicle escort is vital for abnormal loads as it gives other road users a warning and an indication that there is extremely large cargo up ahead, preventing them from overtaking dangerously.

We class an abnormal load as a vehicle with a:

  • Weight exceeding 44,000kg
  • Axle load exceeding more than 10,000kg (single non-driving axle)
  • Axle load exceeding 11,500kg (single driving axle)
  • Width over 2.9 metres
  • Rigid length exceeding 18.65 metres
