Incorporated into our large flat bed trailer fleet are 20 side pinned trailers tailored to carry several specialist goods for some of our existing customer base. These goods include large logs and steel piling.
Stears Haulage Ltd have obtained the Silver level of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) and we are very proud of this achievement. All our vehicles are fitted with audible left turn warning systems, relevant signage, additional blind spot minimisation mirrors/cameras on our HGV’s and sidebars on our trailers. All of our driver and office staff also completed the Vulnerable Road User Training in London which we found very informative and useful. Our drivers and other road users safety is of primary importance to us as an organisation.
All our drivers have a vast amount of experience delivering to all areas of London and in particular to Central London. Our business is tailored to delivering in London and we use systems such as the London Lorry Rote Approver to adhere to strict rules regarding HGV deliveries in the capital. We have recently completed a project delivering to London King William Street where we delivered over 400 flat trailer loads of steel in relation to the construction of new office space in central London which was a great success.
For many years we have been helping our customers move problematic wide loads up to 3.5m. Our modern trucks are fitted with all the required equipment to carry wide loads safely and within the law and our experienced drivers are very adept at moving these loads and enjoy the challenges they pose. We have obtained yearly dispensation orders with all English Police forces permitting us to move wide loads throughout the country. We are also able to assist with loads above 3.5m in width if required as we have access to an escort vehicle.
Below are a list of some of the other materials we move on a regular basis. Our innovative approach allows us to carry a number of other goods as and when required by our customers to meet their ever changing needs.
Stears Haulage have access to goal-post trailers specially designed for use with transporting steel to ensure maximum stability for the load. We have vast experience delivering to a network of steel manufacturers though out the UK for several decades. Our drivers are equipped with a set of sheets to ensure the load is fully whether-proofed as and when required.
A large amount of our work from Northern Europe is importing bricks for the UK market on flat bed trailers. We also work with several major building supply companies throughout the UK to supply sites and builders merchants. All our drivers carry brick nets.
Stears Haulage import these materials on a daily basis in addition to undertaking a large amount of UK to UK traction to numerous builder merchants. This includes roof tiling, cladding, pavers, thermalite blocks and flooring to name a few products.
Another regular commodity we deliver in the UK, imported from Northern Europe is marble/granite tops mainly used in the production of kitchens.
Again, imported from Northern Europe on an A frame.
On behalf of our Belgium customers we provide several large manufacturing plant sites in the UK with this product on a daily basis. This is fully sheeted and bagged cement.
This includes chipboard, plyboard and laminate flooring which are all fully sheeted to ensure the material is weather proofed and in perfect condition for our customers.
Concrete beams to a site in relation to construction of large scale projects.
Timed crane deliveries to specific sites, many of which are within central London. We have obtained our FORS Silver qualification (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) to allow us access in to Central London. A good example of this is supplying these units for the construction of the Crick Institute in the London Borough of Camden.
Supplying many kitchen retailers directly across the UK.
Bagged plastic for a variety of UK industries.
Hazardous and non-hazardous fertiliser to farms and on occasions to garden centres.
Ideal for flat bed trailers. Currently we deliver these to large waste management companies nationwide.
Stears Haulage also undertakes tautliner work including groupage loads. Much of this work involves the carriage of hazardous goods. Our trained drivers are fully qualified and vehicles are equipped to carry these consignments. These loads include pharmaceutical goods, lubricants/oil, adhesives, solvents and various chemicals.
All flat trailers are fully equipped with a full set of sheets and fixed winch straps. This enables us to ensure loads are fully protected from the elements e.g. Stainless Steel/Chipboard.
We also deliver a variety of products in groupage trailers to supermarkets such as pet food, cat litter and candles.
Wide load dispensation orders have been obtained for all counties throughout England on an annual basis. This permits us to carry goods up to a width of 3.5 metres on all roads without the need for a Police notice period of 2 days.
