TRANSPORT / HAULAGE
The successful delivery of our services and material is fully dependent on reliable transport and haulage.

We manage, maintain and operate a fleet of more than 65 vehicles, ranging from HGV Tippers, HGV Grab Lorries, Volumetric Mixing Lorries, Road Sweepers, HGV Roll-on Roll-off Lorries, HGV Low Loaders and Skip Lorries. The fleet is used to support our contracts and providing direct services to other main contractors, utility companies, private clients, building contractors and developers.
George Killoughery Ltd is committed to reducing CO2 emissions and consequently improving our environment. We ensure that all our vehicles are equipped with the latest Euro specification and all engines have fuel saving and Green technology.
HGV Tipper Hire
With a large fleet of vehicles including 50×8 wheeler tippers and 8×8 wheeler grab lorries we deliver both a high level of service and competitive rates for removing waste and providing quality material.
We can supply an inclusive service where we manage and process from start to finish, including the waste management for the site. We use our own plant to excavate the material into our lorries and then remove an agreed loads per day, as per the program for the job. The material is transported to 1 of our 3 Material Recovery Facilities (Mitcham, Purfleet, Shepperton) where we process under WRAP protocal minimising landfill needs. Jobs are priced on either an all-in rate or a rate per cubic metre, depending on our client’s requirements.
Grab Lorry Hire
A Grab Lorry is versatile and multi-purpose, an excellent alternative to hiring separate plant to load material. They are a cost effective alternative to skip hire, with an average Grab Lorry providing 3 times the volume of your typical skip. In addition to loading or picking up material, a Grab Lorry is excellent for placing material exactly where the client desires. For example; loading out footpaths or patios, in many cases eliminating the need for a mini digger or excessive manual handling.
George Killougery Ltd operates a fleet of 8 wheeler, 32 tonne Grab Loader Lorries, which are designed to meet all the haulage and compliance needs.
Our Grab Loader Lorries are approximately 3.8 metres high. The arm can reach approximately 5-6 meters from the grab body and can manage loads up to 16 tonnes.
We offer a fully operated service with our qualified HIAB-trained drivers always willing to help and accommodate clients where possible.
