Founded in 2019, R2 Transport Ltd is a family business managed by brothers, Michael and Gavin Reid offering a wide range of machinery transport services to clients across the UK and Ireland.
Growing up on a farm with our family, trucks and farm machinery were part of daily life. We developed a strong passion for this and one day knew we put our knowledge and skills to good use. After us both spending many years with some of the leading Agricultural Service providers in our area, we decided there was a desire for us to bring the trucks back into the family and start up in business for ourselves.
Our aim is to use our agricultural backgrounds to work passionately and tirelessly to deliver a bespoke service to our clients and uphold a good reputation. We are constantly looking into ways to improve and broaden the scope of services we provide. Therefore, a great effort goes into keeping our truck and purpose-built trailer clean and maintained to the highest standard.
R2 Transport Ltd aims to provide a service across the whole of the UK and Ireland from our central base in Glasgow, Scotland. Below are some of the services we provide: –
- Agricultural Machinery Transport – with a specialised step-frame trailer capable of carrying up to 36 tons we are able to cover almost all of your needs in the agricultural industry, from ATV’s and Compact Tractors to Combine Harvester’s and Loading Shovels.
- Abnormal Load Transport – our extending trailer allows us a 15.2m (50ft) loading deck at 900mm travel height meaning we are able to move loads of 4m (13ft1in) in height across the UK trunk road network. Movement orders processed in-house and our own escort vehicle allow us to keep our costing fair for all our clients.
- Escort Vehicle – Our latest vehicle is our Escort Vehicle, compliant with Highways England Code of Practice. This vehicle is available for assistance throughout Scotland and further afield to use alongside your own vehicles.
