What is heavy haulage?
First things first, what is heavy haulage? Well, it’s the name given to the transportation of oversized objects that are much heavier and larger than other goods. Cranes, aircraft parts, and even timber houses can be transported by road using appropriate vehicles. The key is to make sure that it is being done safely and efficiently. Luckily, we have plenty of advice to help you do just that! We’ve been in business for 30 years, giving us plenty of time to figure out what works and what doesn’t!
Stick to rules and regulations
If you want to ensure that the transportation of your heavy haulage goes as smoothly as possible, you need to make sure that you adhere to rules and regulations at every stage of the process. There are a number of laws pertaining to which kinds of heavy haulage can be transported without first being divided into smaller parts. Something like an aircraft wing, for example, would be too difficult to take apart – permitting it to be transported as it is. On the other hand, a large load that can be reasonably divided in half and reassembled upon delivery must be split up for transport.
Plan your route
Before you do anything else, it’s important to plan the route thoroughly. Knowing how to get your heavy haulage from A to B with plenty of time to spare will allow you to keep costs down and help you to prepare for any changes that you might need to make further down the line — for example, roadworks. You’ll also be able to factor any tolls into your budget, and figure out how to avoid busy times if possible.
Find out about the pick-up and drop off locations
You’ll also need to find out all that you can about the pick-up and drop off locations. Doing your research about the start and end of your haulage’s journey will ensure a much smoother transit. You may need specialist equipment to load and unload the cargo, such as cranes or forklifts. Planning for these will allow you to ensure that you have the space, time and budget available to make sure that your heavy haulage can begin and end its journey with little to no delays. When you’re transporting cargo of this size, preparation really is key!
