MainlandAggregates.co.uk have access to multiple vehicles all over the UK ensuring that we can offer you the most cost effective and flexible transport options for your goods. By utilising a vehicles’ backload capacity we are able to pass the cost savings on to you, the consumer, whilst at the same time reducing carbon emissions caused by empty goods vehicles travelling on our roads.
The delivery vehicle used will depend on the site i.e. access restrictions. We have access to all types and sizes of vehicle so whatever your requirements we will be able to help. Smaller consignments such as bulk bags or palletised goods are generally delivered by courier where as larger consignments are delivered by rigid or articulated lorries. All orders under 10 bulk bags/pallets will be delivered by a vehicle with a tail-lift and not a crane unless specified. A crane can be requested for smaller consignments at additional cost. See terms and conditions for more information about our delivery requirements.
Obviously with all vehicles we must be able to obtain safe and trouble free access to the point of unloading. It is imperative that you inform us of any problems that may arise before you place an order so we can organise a delivery vehicle to suit your requirements. Access restrictions may require us to deliver goods over 20 tonnes in 2 parts using our smaller vehicles. This will of course incur an extra charge. Any loose loads that only part load a vehicle will be charged full haulage rate as if the vehicle was fully loaded.

When a vehicle travels from A to B it costs the same amount in fuel, wear and tear, drivers wages, tax, insurance, etc regardless of the quantity of goods it is carrying. So for example, if the delivery charge for going from Northampton to York is £200 it doesn't matter if the vehicle has 10 tonnes on board or 20 tonnes on board the cost is still £200. However, the delivery charge per tonne then varies according to the tonnage on board. E.g. if you have 20 tonnes on board delivery is costing you £10 per tonne because the £200 is offset against 20 tonnes. If you have just 10 tonnes on board the delivery charge is £20 per tonne as the £200 is offset against just 10 tonnes. Rather than have a seperate charge added on the end for part load charges we incorporate it into the final price.
*Please Note: We deliver to UK destinations only. Delivery charges vary according to your location and the products required hence we are unable to display delivery rates on this website. However, requesting a no obligation quote is quick and easy and we usually respond within 10 minutes.
