Transport

At Platts we run our own fleet of commercial vehicles. Look out for our hard-to-miss lorries delivering bedding all over the UK!

 

We have a range of Rigid 8 wheeler, and Articulated vehicles, to accommodate varying load sizes. A rigid load is 14 or 16 pallets and an artic load is 24 or 26 pallets. Bulk deliveries are transported on an articulated moving-floor vehicle- and usually average between 22-24 tonnes. All bulk loads are weighed using our on-site weighbridge for accurate invoicing.

 

Our rigid drivers can unload your delivery using their truck-mounted Moffett for no additional charge if you don’t have your own unloading facility.  Just let the transport team know when you place your order.

 

All of our HGV vehicles are also equipt with TomTom live time trackers so we can give you accurate locational information.

Bulk Deliveries

 

With our diverse fleet of vehicles and trailers, we can deliver bulk loads quickly and without hassle. Watch the video to see a bulk load of fresh sawdust delivered on a moving-floor trailer, on a dairy farm at Whitchurch.

Bulk Loading Technology

 

With the most modern, up-to-date technology in our factory, we’re able to load our moving floor trailers quickly, efficiently and safely.  Check out the video to get an idea of what goes on here at Platts HQ!

Supplying Ireland

 

As well as the whole of the UK, our products are available in bags and in bulk, delivered throughout Ireland, through a network of distributors as well as direct for larger loads.
