What is the process of our Heavy Haulage service?

Without the correct equipment, moving industrial machines and heavy equipment is an arduous task. But relax, JB Rawcliffe and Sons Ltd have a fantastic reputation for heavy haulage transport and take care of everything from planning and transportation, right through to installation.

Heavy haulage is a process – relied on by many industries to get oversized products to their end destination on time – that involves many safety and logistical factors. As an experienced heavy haulage company in the UK, JB Rawcliffe provides specialist haulage equipment and trained staff – offering a service that’s second to none.

How it works:

  1. Survey

Our heavy haulage services are great for transporting, installing and handling bulky items that are difficult to move – be it generators, turbines, cooling towers or industrial machines.

When transporting abnormal loads, even the slightest miscalculation can have severe consequences, so we need to make sure that we get every aspect of heavy haulage just right. We’ll work closely with you, conducting a detailed survey and inspection before preparing the transportation plan.

  1. Planning

Planning is key to a successful move, and here at JB Rawcliffe, we plan and execute logistics in intricate detail. We assess the potential security and environmental challenges that could be faced en-route – including obstructions, such as bridges, flyovers and overhead cables – and apply for permits and arrange vehicle escorts wherever necessary.

We’ll also consider the scale of the job, specific dimensions and weight of the equipment that needs transporting – ensuring our team uses the optimum heavy haulage truck for the job.

  1. Transportation

As a heavy haulage specialist, safety is crucial for us. Our haulage trucks are only ever operated by a fully qualified driver who has a wealth of experience in the industry.

For particularly challenging routes, we can draw on our 45 years’ experience and provide vehicle escorts to ensure the safe transit of your industrial equipment – making sure it arrives smoothly. We also incorporate the recommended ‘rest periods’ into the transportation plan to ensure maximum safety – especially for cargos being transported across the country.

By opting for JB Rawcliffe for heavy haulage in the UK, you can relax knowing that your machinery is being safely handled by highly trained personnel, using the latest equipment.
