Dedicated Road Haulage, Lifting & Warehousing

Rear Steer Wafer Deck Low Height Trailer Transport time….

That’s a mouthful hey… Rear Steer Wafer Deck Low Height Trailer.

Sometimes we need to get these combinations together to get a job done, and this was no exception.

Is it wrong that we got a little excited when our customer called us with a large logistics problem that was 12 metres long, 4.5 metres wide and 4.2 metres high?

Chuck in a weight of 14,500kgs, the need to shift the unit from Hampshire to Oxfordshire, and you’ve got yourself a real transport and lifting job with some fairly unique challenges.

It was contract lift time, and for this job we not only sourced the mobile crane and specialist transport solutions, but we also provided a full suite of qualified lift personnel, lifting plans, method statements, risk assessments, wide load escort vehicles, and abnormal load permits.

We utilised a wafer deck low height trailer with remote rear steering to enable us to reverse into the water treatment works Thame, Oxfordshire.

The large mobile crane was provided by Southern Cranes and Access who loaded the unit in Basingstoke and followed us to Thame for the offload.

The project was completed within one day and the whole team received extremely positive feedback from both our client, and the customer at the treatment works.

If you are after a haulage, lifting, and logistics operator who doesn’t shy away from the big jobs then get in touch with our transport or lifting teams today on 0800 915 23 23 or complete our contact form.
