RJC specialise in the provision of HIAB and Low Loader Vehicles, this page is dedicated to the myriad of HIAB vehicles we have on offer. Currently we are able to offer both 6 and 8 wheel vehicles. If it's an articulated HIAB you're after, then we can provide those too.
The fleet is manned by operatives whom have been formally trained in Manual Handling, Fire awareness, and hold CPCS in both Lorry Loader Crane and Slinger Signaller (plus Entry Permits for the Underground and Trackside Safety Competence should you require deliveries to the Network Rail Infrastructure), and the entire fleet is equipped with sleeper cabs for long haul works.
Many of our vehicles are equipped with beavertails to allow easy accessibility and the on and offloading of plant and machinery.
HIAB's are more than capable of being involved in major lifting operations, within the guidelines of BS7121 Part 3; to which RJC comply – along with an additional commitment to the requirements laid down by Achilles for work within the Rail Infrastructure. Our articulated HIAB's also have winches for smoother, more precise operations.
All our Equipment is frequently tested as required by the lifting operations and lifting equipment regulations (LOLER) 1988
Our capability ranges from simple on site Contract Lifts to client specification, through to production and management of the complete project, using project specific Method Statements and work specific lifting plans.
Not only does our service remove the ambiguity of whether the static crane would arrive on time, there is a second massive advantage to using a HIAB, namely that the same vehicle may be used to transport the materials and equipment to site and then undertake the lifting aspect of the works. This not only provides for a more efficient service to your client, but it reduces your overheads and increases your flexibility where time may indeed be critical. The use of one vehicle is required on site also removes any additional parking requirements, permits and the like, that two or more vehicles may have required.
If you need it, we can appoint a competent person, who can visit the site you are planning the works for, and provide additional advice, from producing site and task specific Risk Assessments, through to a Method Statement and/or Lift Plan for undertaking the work.
The process used by RJC means that you are key to the successful completion of the work, there won't be any step of the process undertaken without your consent, and we aim to provide 100% satisfaction.
