A: Payment terms must be negotiated between the haulier and the load poster. Truckspace.co.uk has no involvement in payment terms.

It is upto the haulier to check the companies credentials.

A: You can contact us by phone to list loads/vehicles, however enquiries about loads/vehicles present on the system are not permitted.
