The primary role of an escort vehicle is to alert other road users and pedestrians of the presence of an abnormal load or abnormal vehicle. Additionally, the escort vehicle and its occupants will assist the abnormal load in safely negotiating the transport route.
At Whitten Road Haulage Ltd. we have equipped ourselves with fully-detailed Escort vehicles in order to have 24-hour on-demand cover for our Abnormal loads. Our vehicles are equipped with 2-way radio communication, hazard warning and first-aid equipment.
Our staff are fully trained and experienced in travelling with abnormal loads, and with the operation of power steered trailers and modular. They are always available to assist drivers in the loading and unloading of abnormal loads.
Our pilot van service is available for daily hire for any companies wishing to move abnormal loads.
