Roadworks Deliveries in Highway Maintenance Liveried Vehicles

With an increasing number of clients requiring deliveries to Motorway or Highway construction sites we have added another fast response small vehicle to our Highway Maintenance Chapter 8 compliant fleet with lights.

Of course the vehicles can be used for other deliveries and offer improved visibility when our delivery drivers need to park on the road to complete a delivery when they’re unable to secure a parking space.

They are also often called bug stamped timber crates.
