Sometimes described as a mobile crane, the significant advantage of a Hiab truck is that it can both transport and lift your products, whereas a mobile crane can only lift. A mobile crane will also generally require specific permission to operate, including formal street closure which can often be very time consuming. Closing a street for a crane needs considerable notice and this is often a luxury that is not available in the construction industry.
Another major advantage of a hiab truck is that it can both transport and lift your products. Typically we will collect from a manufacturer and deliver to a construction site. We are used to fitting in with site delivery times too. In effect we provide a full logistics service.
Hughes Lifting Services are based in Grays, Essex. We are happy to discuss your specific transport and lifting needs. We obviously have to take into account the weight of the lift and the reach required to make sure that we allocate the appropriate Hiab truck for each lift.
