So far as he is concerned, while shifting two huge steam boilers from Immingham in Lincolnshire to Snodland in Kent – a distance of over 322km (200 miles) – poses the odd challenge or two, it's not exactly complicated when compared with some of the other movements the company has had to deal with. As heavy lift projects director at Collett & Sons, and being with the company for 15 years, Eric Crosby has been involved with transporting some of the biggest and heaviest items that have ever travelled by road in the UK.
