Business as usual at Burcombe Haulage

Most of us will be aware that the weather is currently doing its best to disrupt travel and transport in the south west with both prolonged rain and strong winds causing serious problems in many areas.

Here at Burcombe Haulage we are working even harder to meet our customers’ expectations and to do our bit to keep Cornwall open for business.

We were recently faced with a problem when strong winds, fallen tress and closed roads could have prevented our overnight trunker leaving Cornwall.

This was solved by the use of an “outrider” driving ahead to check that the one remaining route out of the county was clear with the trunker following a safe distance behind.

We have also received a number of e-mails thanking us for the efforts made by our drivers to deliver pallets in very difficult conditions.

Our thoughts go out to all affected by the bad weather and we are doing our very best to continue to provide the service that our customers expect.

Burcombe Haulage sponsors jump at Port Eliot

Burcombe Haulage has recently agreed to a lifetime sponsorship of a jump at the East Cornwall cross-country course on the Port Eliot Estate.

The course has been designed by local international event rider Tamsyn Hutchins and we are delighted to provide support to this local initiative in this way.

The jump, known as The Wishing Well was used at the most recent event held on the 14th September and for good measure we displayed a new 6-wheel tipper as a backdrop.

The East Cornwall cross-country course is well worth a visit on a future event and make sure to keep a look out for our jump!
