Southampton Lifting Expertise Hauliers

IMG_4737Lifting heavy loads from awkward spaces is only one of a multitude of haulage specialities we can offer you!

With a fleet of HIAB lorries, artics, flatbeds, 18t, 7.5t, curtain sides, moffets,  Sprinter, 4×4 and escort vehicles;  Sussex Transport based in the South East can help with a huge variety of loads and jobs!

Last week we were asked to assist a company with moving a heavy item of machinery from a very small space on a large cruise ship which was due to embark on a worldwide cruise from the port of Southampton .

Sussex Transport stepped in to help – and with two of our experienced HIAB operators, we managed to crane the item from the ferry onto dry land.

Following receipt of a customer satisfaction questionnaire ( we send one of these to all new clients after completion of our first job with them) we were delighted to hear the job went so well.

Feedback from our client was great, ‘’ this was a really difficult operation that had to be completed, so that the ship could go on a round the world cruise, Darren and Chris were absolutely brilliant, I can’t thank them enough for their patience and support’’


The port of Southampton has been owned and operated by Associated British Ports since 1982, and is the busiest cruise terminal and second largest container port in the UK.

For Sussex Transport, lifting and moving containers up and down the UK on our fleet of HIAB lorries is the bread and butter of our HIAB work  – but wer are also on hand to assist with trickier jobs involving abnormal / unbalanced loads or just to lift something from A to B ( we have plenty of experience just relocating containers, cabins, hot tubs , swim spas etc)

We’d be happy to chat about your next requirement – give one of our planners a call in the office on 0800 915 23 23 or drop us an email on
