At Wanlip Sand and gravel we operate our own fleet of vehicles that can cater for most delivery needs. We cover all of Leicestershire and South Nottinghamshire from our base at Wanlip.
We run tipper lorries, crane lorries and lorries that can do a bit of both, please see below for details
We have loading and weighbridge facilities to load any size lorry or trailer collecting direct from our yard, alternatively if you only have a car we have a bag your own system. All decorative are £100 per tonne (£2.50 per 25kg inc vat) and building materials are £40 per tonne (£1.00 per 25kg inc vat) you can bring your own bags or we have some at 20 pence each, this enables you to easily mix and match the materials you want, and top up if you need a little more to complete a job.

32 Tonne Scania Tipper Grab Lorry

32 Tonne Scania Tipper Lorry

Length 9.8m Width 3.2m Height 3.8m and body height when tipped 9m.
44 Tonne Tipper Lorry
If you require a larger load we can call on one of our haulage partners that run 44T tippers, these lorries can carry between 28-30 tonnes but need space to manoeuvre and very level ground to tip.
Length 14.2m Height 4m and body height when tipped 11m
