Haulage & Crane Hire

Dave Forrest Transport can provide a wide variety of standard Haulage and Delivery Services to our clients throughout Dorset, Hampshire and the UK. We are conveniently based in Bournemouth with easy access to major routes. This enables us to offer a wide range of competitive services across the south and beyond, from a few tonnes to a few thousand. Our professional approach to adjust to our clients requirements is what keeps Dave Forrest Transport at the forefront of the haulage industry.

The tasks we are asked to perform are many and varied but on every occasion the job is approached with regard to a successful completion. We take into account timescales, health and safety and the possibility of performing the task exactly how the client requires. This often requires a prior site visit to assess any potential difficulties which may arise. Frequently the client will not always appreciate that a fence, building or other obstruction will hamper the job.




It is in taking this care that Dave Forrest has a good reputation and is employed consistently by both Bournemouth and Poole Councils. We delivered a large christmas tree for example to Poole high street and lifted it into position. Another task involving our services are local elections - those cabins spotted around in every town and village have to be transported and put in the correct position by someone!

Other clients who often use our services are building companies. We are asked to transport a wide range of building materials to sites far and wide by companies such as Persimmon, Penny Farthing and Taylor Wimpey. These would be classed as fairly standard jobs but you will see from the images below that we are often asked to perform tasks which are more unusual - boats, planes and other large items have all been seen on our flatbeds.


Whether its containers, cabins, boats, light aircraft, bricks, timber, steel, plant machinery factory removals or just an on-site movement or erection you require, local or long distance, at Dave Forrest Transport we will be happy to help, so please get in touch with us for further information.

Our fleet of 9 modern lorries provides the solution for all your transport needs. The fleet ranges from our 45 tonne metre crane lorries through to our 66 tonne metre crane lorries.
