In the United Kingdom, you require a permit to move an abnormal load, the haulier must notify his intention to move giving the prescribed period of notice to the authorities. As long as no route variation is specified, the haulier is then free to move his load providing he is carrying the notification and any responses from the authorities. The AMS Services team will liaise with the relevant UK Police and Local Authorities and submit a notification on your behalf, obtaining your UK Abnormal Load Permit quickly and efficiently. Whether it's a wide load notification, a heavy load or a long load we can do the work for you. If you'd like a price for this service just email and ask: firstname.lastname@example.org

AMS Services are the experts at carrying out route surveys to assess the suitability of proposed routes for all abnormal loads. All abnormal loads need careful route planning – we have produced many highly detailed route surveys and plans for wide loads, high loads, heavy loads and long loads. When route surveys are complete, we were able to provide our client with a step-by-step document of the route with very specific locations and bridge heights. This is then used by the haulier driver and AMS Abnormal load support team to ensure the load reaches it’s destination in the most efficient and safe way possible. If you would like us to help plan your route, please contact us to discuss your needs.
Safe and successful lifting operations depend, in large part, on the continued safety of the lifting equipment and accessories that are used. Failures in this kind of equipment can result in significant or even fatal injuries. Health and safety law therefore places a number of specific obligations on those providing, controlling and using lifting equipment to properly manage these risks. Ally Macpherson Services can inspect your lifting equipment and provide a certificate of thorough examination.
AMS Services can provide you with an Lift Supervisor who will supervise the lifting operation ensuring that it is carried out safely and to the lifting plan provided.
