What is heavy haulage?

The term heavy haulage is usually applied to heavy loads that are oversized and cannot be broken down, such as a large shipment of heavy goods in crates that can be split, in order to fit the item on a flatbed, curtain sider or low loader for transportation. Heavy loads might include things like pieces of machinery that need to be moved from a manufacturing facility to the company they were built for. These loads need specialist handling at every step of the way.

They need to be loaded and secured properly onto a specialist vehicle before being transported carefully to their destination. On arrival, the same care and attention must be taken to unload them to ensure the safety of any individuals who are around. These are not normal loads and not something that a company may be asked to move on a regular basis. When it comes to selecting a company to assist you with your heavy haulage, it is very important to ensure that the haulage company you are looking at has the knowledge, skills and experience to undertake your haulage needs in a secure and safe manner.
