Hi-Ab Hire

Hi

Does anyone on here work for or use a Hi-AB company ideally with a 40' bed or trailer. I am looking for someone to do some regular work and ideally recommended, also in the Portsmouth/Southampton area.

Rig needs to lift 500kgs at a time, which will be 12m x 4.5m sections of Versadock, lifting slings can be easily attached to the dock to help lifting.

Or a Lorry with a Lorry mounted forklift.

Thank you
Richard

What's it moving and how heavy? There's a wild difference in weight/sizes of crane.

We could make the sections smaller to fit a 26' flat bed with HiAB or Forklift if that helps. Weight would then be 352kg' per slab of floats.

This is what the competition use, the other images are some of the hire installs we have done. Normally we use our Landcruiser and our 7m Flatbed trailer.

Last time I had to move a shipping container I used Gatwick Hiab. They did a good job at short notice.

I have used Richmond Transport in Horndean a couple of times in the past, and can recommend them.

The owner once told me they have a Hi-ab that they move Pac22s on cradles about with for the Navy/VT
