You will be required to adhere to the following guidelines to ensure that your experience at our warehouse locations remains both safe and hazard free.
Several of our products come in long lengths that require a suitable vehicle or trailer to be used for collection.
If you wish to collect such products from one of our warehouses or affiliated depots please read the following pick up guidelines first.
In accordance with legislative requirements we will use the guidelines below to ensure that your method of collection complies with road safety regulations.
Rear Overhang Limits: To reduce rear overhang, loads on motor vehicles may protrude up to 1.2m from the front of the vehicle.
A load may only project 150mm from the outermost part of either side of the vehicle. However, the maximum overall width for any vehicle and any load is 2.5m.
The maximum rear overhang is 60% of the wheelbase. This measurement is not taken from the rear of the vehicle but the center of the rear axle.
Trailers: The addition of a trailer does not allow a greater rear overhang on the towing vehicle. The load must fit within the carrying area or body.
NO REAR OVERHANG IS PERMITTED ON A TRAILER!
Pig Trailers: The rear overhang must not exceed the length of the load carrying area or the body ahead of the overhang line.
Dog Trailers: For dog trailers and semi-trailers the rear overhang must not exceed 60% of the distance from the point of articulation at the front of the trailer to the overhang line.
Suitably rated restraints must be used when securing your load. The use of Telstra rope is not permitted.
