Vehicles for Mandurah Heavy Transport
Rigid trucks: This type of lorry has at least two – and up to five – axles fitted to the frame. These vehicles are well-suited to transporting large items across well-maintained roads.
Articulated trucks: These can handle rougher roads and are more flexible due to a pivot joint which allows them to turn more sharply.
Flat-bed trucks: These rigid lorries have flat trailers attached to them. They’re often used for transporting large, bulky items such as concrete pipes or steel girders. Cargo is contained within blocks, or lashed, to impede movement during transit.
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 won’t block the road.
Low-loaders: With two drops in their deck height, these semi-trailers can be used to accommodate taller loads such as heavy equipment including bulldozers.
Prime movers: These heavy-duty towing engines are designed to haul trailered loads.
For your peace of mind, most of the vehicles TSL Australia works with are accredited under the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS).
Equipment Used for Mandurah Heavy Haulage
As well as the vehicles themselves, we use different types of equipment for the handling of your consignment.
Forklifts: We use these small industrial trucks to shift small pieces of cargo, for example, boxes containing dry goods, over short distances. We also may use forklifts for loading and unloading goods to and from larger vehicles.
Cranes: We use cranes to lift items that cannot be rolled on and off the transportation vehicle.
Platform/flat-bed trailers: These can be attached to the back of articulated trucks or prime movers to transport heavy loads or equipment. This type of vehicle can usually be loaded and unloaded from the sides.
Jinkers and Dollies: These trailer extensions are added to the main vehicle in order to help distribute a load and to enhance weight capacity. Jinkers are typically used for log transportation.
