UK Permits / Police Notifications

For Abnormal Load Permits in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Ireland, Denmark Italy etc - please see the 'EU Permits' tab above.

 

In the United Kingdom, if you require a permit to move an abnormal load, the haulier must notify his intention to move giving the prescribed period of notice to the authorities. As long as no route variation is specified, the haulier is then free to move his load providing he is carrying the notification and any responses from the authorities. Convoi Exceptionnel Ltd will liaise with the relevant UK Police and Local Authorities and submit a notification on your behalf, obtaining your UK Abnormal Load Permit quickly and efficiently. Whether it's a wide load notification, a heavy load or a long load we can do the work for you. If you'd like a price for this service just email and ask: info@convoi.co.uk
