Albany Heavy Transport Vehicles
When a curtainsider truck just won’t do the job, TSL calls in a more capable vehicle. Listed below are just some of the dedicated lorries and trucks used for heavy haulage in Albany.
Rigid lorries have up to five axles and a single rigid chassis. They are well suited to well-maintained roads. These vehicles are often employed to transport dry goods such as toilet paper and shipping containers.
Flat-bed lorries are rigid lorries used with flat trailers. This type of vehicle will often be used to transport large, bulky items such as concrete pipes and water tanks. Often the cargo is blocked or lashed to keep it still and stable as the lorry moves around.
Articulated lorries consist of a front unit and a trailer joined together. Because they are more flexible than rigid, they are used for excessively large loads. They perform well on sites with different surface types such as dirt roads or gravel quarries.
Side-loaders enable easier loading and unloading because they allow goods to be placed on the vehicle sideways on. This makes it easier to balance out the load and means better use can be made of the available space.
Low-loaders (sometimes called lowboy trailers or lowboys) sit lower on the road than standard trailers which give extra height. This enables the carriage of taller items like bulldozers.
Prime movers are heavy-duty towing engines that are designed to haul trailered loads.
Vehicles used for heavy haulage in Albany are sturdy, strong and resilient, with distinct features that prepare them for the transportation of heavy and oversized items. They may be equipped with include collapsible mirrors, grabrails, cameras, side marker lamps, lockdown ramps, toolboxes, fuel-saving features, skid plates, and aerodynamic technology. These all help ensure the smooth, safe and effective treatment of your property, from loading right through to delivery. Some of the lorries we use for heavy transport in Albany can be steered from the rear, which enables them to stay steady even at top speeds and when turning corners.
Vehicles will usually be accredited under Australia’s NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme).
