Experience counts

Established in 1947, Galt Transport is a family owned and operated haulage firm specialising in lorry mounted cranes, general and heavy haulage and the movement of dangerous goods (ADR). During the past 70 years our fleet of trucks, cranes and specialist trailers has developed significantly to become one of the most diverse in Scotland. Alongside our fleet, our services have extended to include a Driver Training School and extensive industrial storage. What hasn’t changed however is our commitment to the traditional family values on which Galt Transport was founded, all those years ago.

With four operating centres across central Scotland we serve the UK, Ireland and Europe with general and specialist haulage services including ADR (class 1-9) and all STGO categories. We can advise on all aspects of transport law and can arrange advance notification to all relevant authorities for any abnormal, sensitive or hazardous loads. We are also a Section 5 approved haulier for the carriage of restricted cargo.

Equipment and expertise

Every year we invest heavily in our fleet of trucks, lorry mounted cranes and specialist trailers. With over 60 trucks and 100 trailers from market leading manufacturers we manage to maintain a truly flexible fleet that we take great pride in. The same can be said of our workforce, the majority of whom have accrued long service records. The loyalty and industry experience shared across our team give us a skills base that is second to none.

Straightforward and reliable

Our approach has always been based on our straightforward and reliable approach. This has allowed us to grow and adapt in partnership with our customers over the years, many of whom have been with us since the early days including long-standing contract hire agreements. Whatever your needs or challenges our team will be able to offer advice and a fully flexible approach to your requirements. Call us for a free quote today.
