Lifting you higher
Hiab is a commonly used term for a lorry-mounted crane, these type of vehicles have a huge variety of uses often removing the need for forklifts or mobile cranes to be present at the collection.
Our Hiab services are ideal for private customers and businesses who wish to have goods collected or delivered using our onboard lifting equipment. Using remote-operated lorry loaders and cranes, our drivers can safely position their vehicle to facilitate a lifting method using chains, straps or lifting beams.
Our lorries are fitted with PM mobile-operated cranes which have the lifting capability of up to a ton at 20 metres. Combined with extensions, we have the capability to reach 20 metres.
Our drivers are competent lifting operators and will assess the situation on-site at the time of arrival for any risks or alternative measures required and will communicate the proposed strategy to the site manager or appointed person.
From train carriages to helicopters, we’ve moved a whole range of vehicles, materials and machinery. Here’s just some of what we can move, but if you have something a bit different, just get in touch. We love a challenge!
Within easy reach of Poole, Southampton, Portland, Weymouth, Lyme Regis and Portsmouth harbour, we have experience in lifting and relocating boats. A lifter and spreading beam will be used to load safely. Experienced in the importation process, we can also work with the dock on your behalf to arrange a timely collection and delivery.
We have a range of plant machinery and will choose the right equipment for your load. Our small beaver tail lorry makes an ideal choice for tight sites including home extensions. Diggers, dumpers, cable drums, vessels, septic tanks, generators and silos are just some of the things we can carry. Our wafer deck trailer can carry higher and bigger loads including abnormal loads.
Weddings and events
Shepherd's huts, glamping pods and yurts
We specialise in moving this kind of accommodation as we have low ride lorries and wafer deck trailers with power steering on the trailers so we can manoeuvre into tight sites. This equipment is ideal for the type of countryside location where you are most likely to need these units installed.
