Tailor-made for bulk distribution

For the bulk distribution of bricks and blocks, there is no better body than a Charlton BrickLite. Typically operating at 44t gvw, we’ll also make the trailer too!

Brick and block hauliers typically come to Charlton with a specific operating requirement. From there, we will deliver the exact body specification requested. Payload usually comes first, which is why BrickLite bodies and trailers can provide a 30t carrying capacity given a suitable truck chassis. Easy and speedy to use, BrickLite also includes many H&S features for maximum operating safety.
