We are aware that some freight because of its length, size and weight or just plain awkwardness may not be suitable for loading or offloading by forklift truck. It may well be that the freight or machinery can be safely loaded by forklift or cranage at your depot, but there are no such facilities for offloading when the lorry has arrived at its destination.

Lifting operations that we carry out on a regular basis

Machinery can be particularly awkward even dangerous when loading by forklift truck and the risk of injury to employees or customer’s goods being damaged whilst engaged in such activities is a very real possibility. DA & J Rustage can supply a crane lorry flatbed vehicle to suit your requirements. Here are just a few of the lifting operations that we carry out on a regular basis:


  • Transportation and lifting of steel work and materials to loft conversions and equipment to basement level.
  • Lifting and transportation of plant and machinery including factory moves.
