Hello everybody.
I have a question connected with trucking and road safety.
Company i work for is going to buy a big machine john deere 9630 (like under this link).
I am currently looking for a company willing to transport this machine from Leicester to Norwich. I'd like to know if have to get some kind of special permission for transport this machine on roads or something?
Thank you for any help in advance.

Any haulage contractor capable of taking on such jobs will be familiar with the regulations governing them, so compliance becomes their problem, not yours. It's part of the service you pay for.

See this page on the DfT website for the regulations on abnormal loads.
