Our main operational area covers the North West region, including Cheshire, Cumbria, Derbyshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire,  Merseyside, North Wales, Staffordshire, South and West Yorkshire – although we do deliver throughout the UK.

Whether it is 10 tonne of Decorative Gravel to a tight spot or 1,000 tonnes a day to your major contract, we never break stride.


Small and bulk bags available. All bags can be printed with your own company name and logo, to ensure you maximise every branding opportunity.

Load Sizes

Whether ordering loose or bagged materials we can offer a wide variety of load sizes:

Loose Loads
Minimum Loose Load Size without surcharge = 21 tonnes

Smaller loads under the minimum weights are available and surcharges are applied according to quantity required.

Vehicle carrying capacities are approximately as follows:  

  • 4 wheeler = 11 tonnes
  • 6 wheeler = 17 tonnes
  • 8 wheeler = 21 tonnes
  • Articulated = 30 tonnes

Vehicle dimensions can be found in our Resource Centre

Bagged Loads
We can deliver in the following vehicles: 

  • 8 wheeler flatbed (with fork lift or crane off if required)
  • Articulated flatbed or curtain-sided (with fork lift if required)

To allow the greatest flexibility to the customer we can deliver a mixture of Bulk and Small Bags together on the same vehicle so you can pick and choose as long as the vehicle is to capacity.

Small Delivery by Pallet
For the customer who only requires a few bulk bags or pallets of small bags we can still get them to you direct to site via our pallet delivery service.

Many of our materials are produced to BS EN and other industry standards. We have a wealth of technical expertise in dealing with material specifications and product performance. We employ independent UKAS MCERTS laboratories to test products on a regular basis to ensure we provide accurate and up-to-date information.
