Vehicles for Heavy Transport in Bunbury
Rigid trucks: These vehicles have between two and five axles fitted to the frame. They are used to transport large items across well-maintained roads.
Articulated trucks: These can handle bumpier roads and are extra flexible due to a pivot joint which allows the lorry to turn sharper corners more easily.
Flat-bed trucks: These are rigid lorries with flat trailers, often used for transporting large, bulky items such as steel girders or concrete pipes. To keep cargo still during transit, it’s often contained within blocks or lashed.
Side-loaders: This type of truck can be loaded from the side, making it easier when there’s limited space. It means the truck doesn’t have to turn around and is less likely to block the road.
Prime movers: These heavy-duty towing engines are designed to haul trailered loads.
Low-loaders: With two drops in their deck height, these semi-trailers can be used to accommodate taller loads.
Vehicles used for heavy haulage in Bunbury will usually be accredited under Australia’s NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme)
Equipment Used for Bunbury Heavy Haulage
As well as the vehicles themselves, a wide range of equipment may be used to assist in the transference of your heavy transport in Bunbury.
Forklifts: These common industrial trucks are used to move small pieces of cargo over short distances, for example, boxes of dry goods. They are also used for loading and unloading goods to and from larger vehicles.
Cranes: Used to lift loads that cannot be rolled on and off the transportation vehicle.
Platform/flat-bed trailers: Trailers are attached to the back of prime movers or articulated trucks to transport loads or equipment. They can usually be loaded/unloaded from the sides.
Jinkers and Dollies: These are trailer extensions that are added to the main vehicle in order to maximize weight-lifting capacity and distribute the load. Jinkers are often used for transporting logs.
