When we think of haulage and goods transportation, the image we create for ourselves is often that of a HGV hauling a container or standard flatbed truck with goods strapped to it. However, many goods are simply unable to be transported by such means, and hauliers along with businesses and consumers are often left scratching their heads on how they can get their consignments delivered to them.
Phelan Haulage continued the specialist transport and installation of these tall telecoms masts this week, this time near Glasgow, using the Scania member of our fleet. Our HIAB driver/operators carefully erected the telecommunications masts so that they could be installed by the site technicians. We can cover all aspects of specialist haulage and lifting with safety and ease.
The latest addition to the Phelan Haulage fleet is out Scania Tractor Unit and Fassi 800 (monster!) Crane. Over-the-cab, 360 lifting.
Our HIAB trucks use a demountable body trailer to become small bodied rigid vehicles – catering for small loads or restricted access sites.
As well as the many scheduled, repeating and one-off tasks Phelan Haulage carriers out on a regular basis, we’re also on hand to assist in abnormal or emergency situations. Scenes like this from the aftermath of Storm Corrie [see gallery below] showing a large fallen tree within an industrial premises, are commonplace after periods of stormy weather here in the UK.
Another specialist task for Phelan Haulage last week to transport by HIAB, one of the Northwest Pass Expedition vessels to be kitted out for it’s up-and-coming journey.
More of the specialist transport of these tall telecoms masts and then installation using our fleet of HIAB vehicles, this time in Brighton and other areas of Southern England. These tasks were again completed by both our DAF XF510 Artic lorry along with Palfinger PK62000 EH crane; as well as our our Volvo FH540 truck combined with a Cormach 65000 E6 crane.
Our Volvo F540 HIAB truck was Scotland bound again this week, with a visit to the famous Murryfield in Edinburgh. Phelan Haulage transported and installed these Guinness mobile bar containers into the fan zone, ahead of the Rugby Autumn Internationals 2021. It is expected that the giants of southern hemisphere rugby – South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina – will be back touring Europe once again in November 2021.
Need specialist lifting and wondering how far can a HIAB reach? Here we discuss the capabilities of our fleet along with the largest HIAB crane available. You can also download our full crane specs here.
Today Phelan Haulage completed another specialist haul of two fabulous Northumberland Hut shepherd style cabins from Hexham to North Yorkshire, using both of our HIAB trucks. You’ll find a photo gallery from the move here.
