Travelling to a Mine, Construction or Industrial Site?

Safety and site requirements: Regrettably there is no such thing as a standard 'Mine spec' and requirements vary widely from site to site. Accordingly our rates may vary to suit the situation. When requesting a Quotation or making a Booking please advise which mine(s) you are proposing to travel to. If you have a copy of the Specification for that site it would be greatly appreciated if you pass it onto us. While our staff are familiar with the requirements of most mines in their branch area it is a constantly changing world and your co-operation in this regard will assist us to assist you!


We ask our clients to check and ensure that the vehicle supplied complies with the requirements of the site being visited and to satisfy themselves as to its suitability, at the time of collection. We do not claim to know actual conditions on site.
