CARTER'S LIFT & SHIFT
Carter’s haulage fleet works in conjunction with our plant hire department in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. We have access to large tractor units with specialist trailers to carry heavy plant and crane ballasts using tri-axle trailers with electronically operated ramps.
For smaller haulage jobs we can offer a specialist small heavy goods truck ideal for small building works and for unloading bigger vehicles where site access is difficult. This is often a more economic option for smaller items or where the lift is relatively low.
