Site access

8-wheel lorries and other heavy vehicles need a large entrance that they can turn into, a minimum 3m wide lane or driveway and enough space to offload and turn around the site. If they cannot access the site, you will pay more for deliveries of concrete, sand, blocks and many other things as they will need to use smaller lorries inevitably requiring more trips from the builder’s merchant or from the specialist company who is coming in to make a large delivery.  

If your site and driveway are not well drained, not compact enough and/or not wide enough, then drivers may refuse to drive onto it, necessitating offloading at the roadside which can be very awkward and time consuming/costly.
