Our Fleet

At Colin Mackenzie Removals we are proud of our fleet of highly specialised vehicles. Each vehicle has been designed and built by professional body builders. These vehicles are fully equipped with blankets, webbs, hanging robes, mattress and suite covers and piano trucks to name a few.

We also hold a full Operators licence and hold a Certificate of Professional Competence which means our vehicles have to be maintained to the highest degree with a compulsery service for all our vehicles every 6 weeks. Only companies with good repute and full knowledge of business and road haulage can obtain a licence and only companies with an Operators Licence can legally use vehicles over 3.5 tons. Our Operators licence is enforced by The Department of Transport and VOSA and if we are in breach of any regulations we face heavy fines or even our licence being revoked.

FACT - Did you know that a luton transit vehicle can on average only carry 1000kg before being over weight although if filled up with household effects the weight being carried can exceed 2500kg over 2.5 times the legal weight!!!

If the vehicle is pulled over by VOSA or the police they will unload your effects on the side of the road before being allowed to travel. The driver will receive a hefty fine and at least 3 points on his licence.

FACT - It is a legal requirement to vacate your premises by the time of completion.
If your removal company let you down or turn up with a vehicle too small to fit all your belongings in, you could face hefty fines and costs from the people who have purchased your property if they cannot move in when supposed to.

With our vast expertise we not only ensure a stress free, safe move but we can also deal with any problems that may occur such as delays with keys or even the possibility of the money not transfering meaning we would store your effects until you gain access to your property.
