I thought that too.
I looked at renting a lorry with Hiab and one to fit a Centaur with a big enough lift would be above the 7.5Te that I can drive.
A lorry driving mate said it was a complicated job getting someone to drive the Hiab too, he could drive a bigger lorry than me.
Of course if you are paying a haulier they provide a suitably qualified man.
Do Hiabs have a long drop facility. Lowering bricks or boats to ground level is fine, what about several feet below ground level over the harbour wall and down to the water?
