Get a complete guide for Crane trucks and Hiab Trucks


When it comes to haulage requirements, Crane trucks and Hiab trucks have always been in demand because of their flexibility and ease of operation. The biggest advantage that crane trucks and Hiab trucks have over traditional crane and lorry systems is that it allows one to first save cost by removing the need for manual labour or crane operator. Secondly, it saves time, which is precious in the transportation industry. No one wants their transportation to take a complete day when it could be done in 12 hours.

But while crane trucks and Hiab trucks are the preferred mode of transportation for heavy machinery or anything for that matter, one should keep in mind that they need to hire the right crane trucks and Hiab trucks to get the optimum result.

Here is a complete guide of Crane trucks and Hiab trucks that will make your job significantly easier.

Flatbed trucks

Flatbed trucks are used to carry heavy load items to move cargo weighing up to 24 tonnes. But transporting heavy machinery is not the only facility that flatbed trucks provide. If you have a cargo that is irregular in shape, weight, or both, then Flatbed trucks would be the preferred mode of transportation of that package. Because of its open container, the package can be easily loaded, which makes the haulage business significantly easier.

Crane Trucks

It is the most versatile medium for transporting cargo from point A to point B. As the name suggests, Crane trucks have cranes attached to them, reaching 7 to 30 metres and tray sizes 6 to 25 metres in length. This simply makes the process of loading multiple items efficient. Crane trucks are the perfect haulage transport if you require to transport various things over a long distance.

Semi truck with drop deck trailer

For those cargoes that could not be transported on a flatbed truck due to exceeding the legal height limit on a flatbed truck or any other crane truck, a semi-truck with a drop deck trailer is used. A Semi truck with a 13-meter drop deck trailer is part of the On The Move Transport fleet.

Rigid Hiab truck

A rigid Hiab truck is a vehicle made up of a truck, a trailer, and a lorry mounted crane in one wooden structure, hence the name. The benefit of a Rigid Hiab truck is that it is quite handy and can easily fit into tighter space where a truck pulling a separate trailer would not be able to go. An additional trailer can also be attached to the body of the Rigid Hiab truck to carry extra weight.

Artic Hiab

Artic Hiab is different from the Rigid Hiab truck as the lorry crane is situated behind the cab in this case. The benefit of Arctic Hiab trucks is that they are also capable of a Tandem lift (two trucks are used to lift a larger than the standard load). It can also pull a variety of trailers, which is another of its benefits.

If you are looking to get the advantage of crane trucks and Hiab trucks, you can reach out to professionals at On The Move Transport. Now, you can hire crane trucks and make your job effortlessly easy.
