What is a HIAB Vehicle?

The term HIAB stands for Hydrauliska Industri AB, a Finnish manufacturer that developed a way to use hydraulics as the main mechanism in loader cranes. Developed in the 1940s, they revolutionised the haulage industry with loading being completed by hand beforehand.

HIABs are most commonly used for loading and unloading containers or industrial cargo at construction sites, warehouses and factories. HIAB vehicles are made up of a truck and a hydraulic crane, and were designed to make loading and unloading of cargo more efficient.

Benefits of HIAB Vehicle Hire

With a lorry mounted crane (also known as a lorry loader) and truck vehicle that uses the vehicle engine to power the hydraulics of the crane, the operator is assisted with the role of loading and unloading which benefits a project’s efficiency massively.

These vehicles are also able to deliver goods to the site plus lift them on and off the truck with ease, which often reduces the need for a separate mobile crane. They can also be used for moving goods within a space, such as moving containers, generators or other items within a building site.

HIAB crane hire can help a project run more productively by combining hauling and transportation capabilities. This will mean you have more space to play with on your site to pursue other areas of the project, and can also help with making operations more convenient.

What HIAB Vehicle Do I Need?

The type of HIAB you require ultimately depends on the weight of your load, the distance it needs to be lifted, plus the sort of access available on site. As your haulage company, D Price & Sons will listen to your specific project requirements before allocating the most relevant type of vehicle, which could be either a rigid or artic HIAB.

All HIAB vehicles for hire from D Price & Sons are fitted with a Remote Control to facilitate optimum loading views for our operators to make sure the lifting operation is safe. Safety always comes first with our operations, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

Our HIAB hire vehicles are guaranteed to ensure your project is simpler, maximising efficiency and in turn, your productivity too.
