There are two types of abnormal / oversize permits in Ireland – Standard Permits and Motorway Permits. Permits are required for all abnormal loads greater than L16.5m x W2.90m x H4.65m x Wt44t.
Standard Permits are obtained from individual Local Authorities along a chosen route. The police must be notified 4 days in advance of any movement and permits are issued within 3 – 7 days.
Motorway/Approved Route Permits are issued by An Garda Siochana (police) for designated routes up to L27.4m X W4.30m X H4.65m X Wt44t. Notice period is 5 working days excluding week-end, public holidays, day of application and day of travel. A total of 9-10 days is required. A Standard Permit is required for non motorway sections of the journey.
We act as agents for all abnormal load / oversize load permits for Rep of Ireland and Northern Ireland and through a network for the rest of Europe and beyond.
