How Hazardous Goods Delivery Works
While our dedicated team will take you through all the necessary steps, there are a few considerations to keep in mind when booking hazardous goods couriers. To correctly process your order and provide the correct vehicle type, we require detailed information around your item. For example, is it a temperature sensitive or abnormal load. Whatever the conditions of the item, we can cater to it.
Upon agreement of hazardous goods delivery, one of our expert ADR couriers will collect the goods from your chosen location, securing the load in the process. We work with you to ensure you’re satisfied with load preferences and all aspects of the collection and comply with UK health and safety standards. We then offer a door-to-door service with no additional drop offs. You’ll receive dedicated transport carrying only your goods.
