The answer to this is simply: No.

Our vehicles are extremely heavy as they are fitted with a crane that is suitable to carry and lift an empty shipping container.

The 20ft containers are delivered on a vehicle known as an ‘8 Wheeler’ which weighs in the region of 24.25T (including the weight of an empty 20ft container) and 40ft containers are delivered on an ‘Artic vehicle’ which weighs in the region of 34T (including the weight of an empty 40ft container). They do not have 4,6 or 8 wheel drive fitted and simply do not have the traction to move over wet or muddy areas.

Sadly, we can’t rely on the good old British weather, we cannot commit to driving over grass, muddy areas and uneven ground.

If the vehicles are driven over this type of ground and subsequently get ‘stuck’ the cost of rescuing the vehicle can be exorbitant. The cost of this rescue will be down to the clients account.
