CLOCS, FORS & Crossrail-compliant

Lorry hire for use in London

 

Available upon request, we have a selection of vehicles which are compliant with the standards of CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Community Safety), Crossrail and FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme), suitable for use in & around London.  These vehicles feature additional safety equipment to help reduce goods vehicle collisions with vulnerable road users – such as cyclists & pedestrians – whilst managing other elements of WRRR (Work Related Road Risk).

 

The key safety features of compliant trucks include:  Rear warnings for cyclists, “side-scan” detection & warning systems, additional blind spot mirrors, in-cab driver warnings, Fresnel lens, side under-run guards, reversing alarm/sensor/camera & monitor, reflective markings, amber flashing lights and daytime running lights.

 

Many of our modern lorries are Euro 6 / Euro VI compliant, making them suitable for use within the Central London ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone). There is an additional cost for these more modern & expensive vehicles. If you plan to use your hired vehicle within the ULEZ zone in Central London, please specify a Euro 6 vehicle when making your booking.

 

You can find more information on CLOCS, FORS & Crossrail compliance by reading our blog post.

 

For longer-term hire we can adapt many of our HGVs to feature the equipment required to meet the above standards.  Although we initially adapted our vehicles for hire customers contracted to work on the Crossrail construction project in London, the Crossrail goods vehicle standards are also in line with the major vehicle requirements of similar schemes such as CLOCS and FORS.  So if you have a requirement for hiring a CLOCS-compliant or FORS-compliant lorry or truck, please contact us.
