5 Benefits of Using Speedy Freight to Courier Large and Heavy Items
While standard courier services are suitable for small parcels and regular sized shipments, what about those oversized, irregular shipments that need to be transported safely and swiftly? This is where dedicated courier services for large and heavy items come into play, providing specialised expertise and tailored solutions. Learn more about the benefits of Speedy Freight’s dedicated courier services for large and heavy items.


Speedy Freight specialise in providing tailored same day dedicated solutions to meet your unique business transport requirements, which includes the movement of items with irregular dimensions and weight (IDW). 

Whether you're moving a single pallet or dealing with irregular consignments like garden furniture or heavy and oversized metal sheets, we've got you covered. No matter the size or complexity of your consignments, we have the expertise to handle it all.


The Benefits of Using Speedy Freight to Courier Large and Heavy Items 

Tailored Solutions 

Transporting large and heavy items requires specialised equipment and handling techniques.

Speedy Freight are equipped with the necessary tools and fleet to handle even the most challenging shipments. Our teams and drivers are trained in proper handling techniques, ensuring that your items are loaded, secured, and unloaded with the utmost care.  

By entrusting your freight to professionals experienced in handling difficult-to-move items, you minimise the risk of damage during transit. By selecting our dedicated service, you also have the peace of mind that your goods are the only ones loaded onto the delivery vehicles, virtually eliminating the risk of damage in transit, and ensuring your goods get to their destination quickly. 

We understand that every business is different. That's why we offer personalised services to address your specific needs. Our expert team will work closely with you to develop a solution that perfectly matches your requirements.


Comprehensive Services 

We have the capacity and capabilities to handle it all. Our fleet is equipped to accommodate a wide range of consignments, ensuring that we can meet your diverse business needs.

When it comes to the movement of irregular freight and large and heavy items, we offer a range of services to meet your needs: 

  • Warehouse clears 
  • Depot transfers 
  • Point to point delivery 
  • Regular planned routes 
  • Multi-drop delivery: delivered by a single driver or crews depending on the size and weight of your goods.  
  • Abnormal load delivery 

So, whether you need to clear a warehouse full of bulky, difficult-to-handle items or you need multi-drop delivery solutions to get awkwardly shaped consignments to your customers, we’re there.


Collection Within the Hour 

Time is of the essence in the business world. That's why we pride ourselves on our swift response times. With Speedy Freight, for consignments requiring a van, you can expect collection of your goods within the hour. We value your time, and we're committed to keeping your operations running smoothly.

When requesting larger and specialist vehicles, we also aim to get them to you as quickly as possible. With access to a fleet of over 4,000 vehicles, from small vans to artic lorries to hiabs, Moffetts and flatbeds, we’re equipped to handle all your “out of the box” deliveries.


Emergency Courier Services 

If you’ve been let down by your courier partner or find yourself with an emergency transport need, we’re there. Some courier services will not accept oversized, large, or bulky goods—especially on short notice—but we never shy away from a challenge and always welcome consignments of any size, shape, weight, volume, or dimensions.

Speedy Freight can help with any emergency consignments and offer full logistical support for all your consignments. We have teams on call 24/7 across the country, ready to get your goods on the road in a moment’s notice.
