What is a HIAB driver? A HIAB driver is someone who loads and offloads goods from a vehicle that has a lorry-mounted crane attached. If your work is going to involve loading and offloading goods from a vehicle that has a lorry-mounted crane attached, you will need a HIAB training licence, also sometimes referred to as an ALLMI Certificate.

A HIAB crane equipped vehicle is used to deliver and lift off your container. These have a single crane arm. They are more expensive per mile to run that a truck without a crane attached but they are generally much cheaper than arranging a separate crane to to lift off your container.
Another specialist lift and haul transport move completed this week for Northumberland Hut. These stunning shepherd style cabins we’re lifted and hauled using two of our HIAB crane truck fleet to their new home in Alnmouth, Northumberland.
HIAB is a word that has become common place in the haulage industry when referring to a lorry mounted crane or truck mounted crane.
Sauna installation made easy with Phelan Haulage. We can transport all sizes of saunas, installing them safely over obstacles such as cars, fences or even buildings. If we need to lift the sauna over a fence or bush/trees and can park a vehicle on the other side, then one of our HIAB lorries may be just the trick. This is a truck with a large crane on the back, and can be considerably more cost effective than a full size crane.
