Can I ship a Truckload overseas?
Our Truckloads service is currently only available to those wishing to ship to and from the UK.
We do, however, hope to see more plans being introduced in the future for an international Truckloads service, so be sure to stay tuned for updates!
Do I need a forklift to load and unload my goods?
No, you don't need a forklift to load or unload your goods, but it does help to move your goods quicker than using a pump truck and a tail lift.
If you don't have a forklift available at the collection or delivery point, that's not a problem; you can book a FREE tail lift for loading and unloading your goods.
I've heard of FTL and LTL before, but what do they mean?
FTL stands for "full truckload" and is the same as our Truckloads service. LTL stands for "less than truckload" and is the opposite of FTL.
Essentially, an LTL shipment consists of many consignments going to different destinations; your goods aren't the only ones on the trailer.
Is insurance included in my Truckload delivery?
Yes! All of our Truckload deliveries are insured for up to £1.30 per kilogram.
For example, if your total shipment weighed 1000kgs, they would be covered for up to £1300 in the rare event of loss or damage.
Is LTL cheaper than FTL?
This will depend on how many pallets you're shipping.
While FTL may seem more expensive upfront, it can be much cheaper in the long run if you regularly ship a large number of pallets, as you're paying for the entire trailer, and not individual pallet spaces.
What is a Truckload?
A truckload is a full trailer of goods going to the same destination that belong to the same consignment or customer.
Truckloads are usually made up of between 11 and 26 pallets, however, as long as your total consignment weight doesn't exceed 28 tonnes, any quantity of pallets is suitable.
