    Haulage Advice Please ..

    I have ordered a large amount of paving slabs from a specialist supplier in Oxford.

    Approx 11 tonnes, supplied on pallets - the stone merchant has quoted £450 plus VAT (£540) from Oxford to Standish (M6 jn27)
    They use a 3rd party haulier.

    I wasn't expecting the haulage to be so much, but I have no basis to compare against.

    Can anyone recommend a haulier who may offer a better price, maybe as a return journey from the South to Standish ?

    Any useful suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks

    I think you might find that competitive, especially as it is going to have to be a hiab

    Agreed, thatís actually a very good price considering the distance. Thatís well more than half a dayís work and almost three quarters of a load so they wonít get much more on the lorry and will be relying on fitting that in with something coming back the way.

    Youíre looking at between £800 - £1000 per day for a full day hire of a Hiab depending on where you are.

    Thatís not a bad price. Itís about 340 miles so itís going to be about £200 for fuel and £150 for the driver so theyíre only charging you £100 for wagon for the day. With 11 ton load weight they might have to bring some on a drag trailer, they will price that in as well. Have they asked you about access? That gets fun at times.

    Thatís a very good price, Sending 11 standard pallets without a hiab would cost more.

    we pay about £200 for a 1T pallet of wood into London, so that price is very cheap for 11 pallets

    Thank you to all the folks who took the time to respond.

    It's a no-brainer to use the suppliers haulier, which will avoid issues in the event of significant breakages.
