Machine Transport

Paul A Watler Machinery Movements has over 40 years experience in road haulage and has a wide range of vehicles for transporting all types of machines anywhere in the UK and Europe .

All our drivers are fully trained and licensed to drive the vehicles and cranes and trained to high standards in loading, sheeting and transporting of all types of machines.

First we have the small 4 wheeled Daff 11 toner with a rear mount crane, that can be fitted with a 10 ton draw-bar trailer, this gives us the flexibility to move machines from places with restricted access. This small lorry gives good fuel consumption to allow us to be very competitive in the small end of the market, this also allows us to be more competitive with Cross Chanel movements as the shipping charges are a lot lower than a standard lorry.



Next we have the 6 wheeled Volvo FM12, 26ton ridged with a rear mount crane capable of lifting 9 tonnes and can be coupled with our new 25 ton Chieftain low loader drawbar trailer. This Vehicle gives us the capability to carry machines of the 3 to 9 ton range and with the chieftain trailer it allows us to have a total carrying capacity of 25 tonnes and carry large volumes of machines

Then we have the 8 wheeled ERF EC11, 32ton ridged with a rear mount Fassi capable of lifting 18 Tonnes and with a floor space of 27ft.


Our new Scania T-CAB

The latest addition to our fleet

Now we have the new addition to the fleet, The Flagship! A Scania 124G T-Cab Tractor unit with a Nooteboom Trombone low loader trailer fitted with a rear mount crane. This Vehicle was specially designed for transporting Tall, Long or Heavy machines. The trailer is a trombone so it will open up to carry long items up to 50 feet long.

Our specialist fleet of lorries and forklift trucks enable us to move all types of machines in a professional manner at competitive prices.
