Timber Haulage

Timber Haulage

Derek fox has been involved in the movement of round timber in the North West of England and Southern Scotland for almost 50 years. Our self-loading lorries are a common site up and down the motorway networks of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Cumbria and Staffordshire. We transport a lot of timber for our own mills and we are always looking to buy fencing at roadside.

Timber Haulage Services

Of late we find we are moving trees/firewood for tree surgeons/landscapers and biomass for industry and agriculture.

Biomass can be supplied on our crane lorries or walking floors, depending on which finished product you require, we are on the biomass suppliers list and all timber is FSC certified and approved.

A common question we get asked is - Do you buy logs or can you move them? Well yes, just give us a ring and we will see what we can do for you, whether it is one tree or twenty we will be able to help you.

Land clearance is now becoming common as new ground is being cleared for building, construction sites and road schemes. These areas are being cleared of trees, which we will also buy or move, no job is to big or too small.

At Derek fox timber we will try our up most to help get your job done, we will buy timber off you at site or we will be more than happy to move for you at a set rate to the destination of your choice. All our lorries have weighing systems on them. We also have our own weigh bridge back at base.

We pride ourselves in doing a good job at Derek fox timber, and have been given all the relevant training to meet requirements on all types of sites up and down the country
