Over-dimension load

When moving products on our trucks, we often have to assist with an overdimension loads. Oversized vehicles and loads need to follow additional requirements before travelling on our roads. This is so they can fit on the road safely – for example getting around corners and fit under bridges. An overdimension vehicle or load is one that exceeds one or more of the maximum dimensions allowed for standard vehicles. To drive an overdimension vehicle or load, you need an overdimension permit. You may also have to engage one or more suitable qualified load pilots and a pilot vehicle to supervise the journey. At LinkTrans, Clenton Lincoln holds a Class 2 Pilot Licence. Don’t hesitate to contact Clenton about your overdimension load requirements.

What is a HIAB crane truck and what is its best use?

By Uncategorized No Comments

A “hiab” is a widely used term for truck crane; a crane that is mounted on a heavy, modified truck chassis. Hiab crane trucks are commonly used in the transport industry for the loading and unloading of freight, and in the construction industry for the movement of materials.  A crane truck is a great alternative to having a crane on a work site, as a crane is limited in location and cannot be driven on a public road. Hiab crane trucks can give a lift at one work site and then be driven to other sites in the same day.

Link Trans Auckland LinkTrans Ltd is a family owned business which has been servicing the Auckland area for over 20 years. Any hiab crane work you need, we make it easy!
