Abnormal load notification – your choices

How do you currently submit your abnormal load notifications?

 

Use AbHaulier and get the job done quickly

Did you know that more abnormal load notifications are submitted using AbHaulier than by using ESDAL?*

Notifying your abnormal load movements can be a time consuming and tedious task and yet it doesn't create any additional revenue for your company. So wouldn’t you rather get it done quickly, efficiently and accurately in minutes rather than hours and concentrate on more productive tasks?

AbHaulier and AbHaulier LT are the easiest and fastest ways to create, submit and manage your abnormal load notifications transforming the notification process from hours to minutes.

Use AbHaulier LT, the free version of AbHaulier

Although AbHaulier LT contains less functionality than AbHaulier, it’s still a quick and easy notification tool compared to other methods.

Easy to use Google maps, drag and drop route plotting and simple vehicle set up enable you to produce a notification, plot your chosen route, check for abnormal load restrictions and submit your notification in less than two minutes.

Use EDSAL, a free portal provided by the Government

Contrary to some misconceptions, particularly in police authorities, there is no legal requirement to submit notifications through ESDAL. As long as you submit them with the required method you can use any method you choose. If you are looking for a free notification submisssion tool, ESDAL is not your only option. AbHaulier LT is a free to use tool provided by Cascade Software. Download AbHaulier LT today and start notifying the easy way!

Although it is free to use some hauliers report that they find ESDAL complicated and difficult to use and submitting an abnormal load notification via the portal can take time. So we did some maths. Consider this - Spending one hour each day submitting your abnormal load notifications using ESDAL adds up to 34 business days a year of your time! Just think what else you could do for your business with those 34 days...

Manually prepare and submit the notification yourself

This can take time.

You need to complete all the details, plot your route and add all the route details on to your notification. You then need to work out which structure owning authorities and police forces need to be notified, according to the route you’ve chosen and your vehicle and load dimensions. You’ll need to find the email addresses of all of these authorities and email each of them a copy of the notification, working out the correct notice period to give. AbHaulier LT is a free to use tool provided by Cascade Software. Download AbHaulier LT today and start notifying the easy way!

Don’t notify and run the risk of fines or prosecution

If the driver of your abnormal load vehicle is stopped by VOSA or the police whilst moving an abnormal load without having submitted an abnormal load notification expect:

A sizeable cost to your business - it is not unusual for the authorities to 'park the vehicle up' while an abnormal load notification is submitted to the relevant authorities. The standard notification period is 2 clear working days. If your mobile crane is parked up on a Monday, it may not move again Thursday, 4 days hire revenue and up to four unhappy customers lost.

A fixed penalty to your driver

Company prosecution if infringements reoccur.

Use an abnormal load notification service or agent

There are companies that provide a notification service on behalf of hauliers.

Cascade’s AbHaulier Service has been designed to be as flexible as possible enabling you to submit notifications 24/7, 365 days a year, for a fraction of the cost of other notification agencies.

You don’t need to have any software installed and you won’t require a dedicated person to be trained and available to process your notifications which can cause a headache with holiday or sickness cover. If you’re out and about and need to submit a notification immediately then you don’t need to wait to get back to the office or struggle with slow broadband connections, you just call us and leave the rest to us.
