5 Reasons to Choose HIAB Lorry Hire

Traditional cranes are only sometimes the most practical or efficient solution for moving heavy or awkward loads. That’s where HIAB lorry hire comes in. HIABs, or Hydraulic Truck Mounted Cranes, offer power, versatility, and accessibility. 

If you’re considering HIAB as an option for a project you have in mind, here are five compelling reasons why Guy Crane Hire is your best choice.

1. HIAB Lorry Hire offers Unmatched Versatility

HIAB cranes are like the Swiss Army knives of load-lifting solutions. Their powerful hydraulic arms and precision controls allow them to handle a wide variety of materials and objects, including:

  • Construction materials
  • Palletised goods
  • Machinery
  • Shipping containers
  • Landscaping materials
  • And much more!

2. Enhanced Efficiency

With HIAB lorry hire, you can eliminate the time-consuming process of coordinating separate crane and transport deliveries. This can translate to significant savings on your project timeline. By combining a crane and transport vehicle into one unit, HIAB lorries reduce the need for additional equipment hire and personnel. This translates to significant cost savings on your project budget.

Imagine a single, self-sufficient unit handling the entire lifting, transportation, and placement of your load. This eliminates the logistical headache of managing multiple vehicles and operators, allowing your project to run smoother and more efficiently.

For instance, if you need to deliver and place a pre-fabricated cabin in a remote location, a HIAB lorry can handle the entire process – from loading at the manufacturer’s facility to precise placement on your prepared foundation. This eliminates the need for a separate truck and crane, saving you valuable time and resources.

3. Precision Placement in Tight Spaces

Unlike traditional cranes, HIABs excel in confined environments. Their ability to manoeuvre in tight spaces allows for precise load placement, even in areas where a large crane wouldn’t fit. This is ideal for urban construction sites, residential projects, or any location where space is limited.

  • Project Examples:
    • Need to place a shipping container in a narrow alleyway? A HIAB can easily navigate these confines. Delivering building materials to a backyard renovation? Our HIABs can reach over fences and obstacles.
  • HIAB Benefits:
    • This precision minimises disruption to surrounding areas and reduces the risk of damage to existing structures or landscaping.
  • Our Expertise:
    • Our skilled operators understand the issues of working in tight spaces, and are focussed on ensuring both safety and accurate placement of your load.
