Thanks to our vast knowledge and experience as aggregate suppliers in Caterham and the Horley area, there is nothing we don’t know about MOT Type 1.
This page details what this particular aggregate is and how construction companies use it for a variety of purposes.
Any reputable grab hire and tipper hire company that supplies aggregates should know what MOT Type 1 is. Named after the Ministry of Transport, this material is a standardised aggregate which must comply with the Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works, clause 803.

The Ministry of Transport approves Type 1 for making roads because it has an exceptional load-bearing capacity and compacts easily.
Our grab lorry operatives regularly supply construction companies throughout Horley with MOT Type 1, often in tandem with topsoil delivery following earthworks and muck away.
