The transport of “abnormal loads” can be dangerous because of it being either heavy equipment or oversized by nature. To protect yourself and others, it’s important to know how to transport these items safely using many years of experience and our qualified staff we ensure that preparations such as blocking and chaining down these items is done before the transport there-off can commence. Items such as yellow metal, mining or agricultural equipment as well as ground engaging tools (GET) are the most commonly known equipment which falls under the category of abnormal transport.

Stepdecks with ramps, lowbeds and rollbacks are essentially giant forklifts that can move massive objects from one location to another. These specialized vehicles and trailers are further complimented by our skilled and trained personnel but also our vast range of crane trucks to facilitate 

both loading and off-loading of stationary items or as crane truck hire to perform various other job requirements. Apart from specialized vehicles required to facilitate abnormal loads abnormal permits as well as escort vehicles are compulsory, and as an extension of our services we add further value by acquiring these abnormal permits on your behalf as well as providing our own registered escort vehicles to facilitate the move.

Thus if you need help moving your abnormal equipment, be sure to choose a reputable carrier for all of your transportation needs. Choosing a provider who is aware of how such large equipment is handled is essential in order to prevent any damage or injury during transit.
