How We Work

The average age of our long distance trucks is 4 years. In order to ensure that our client's heavy loads get there on time, we have our own in-house workshop run by our highly qualified staff. Preventative maintenance schedules are followed on all of our vehicles, including Certificates of Fitness. All of our trucks are taken off the road at 800 000 km and all the components are checked. Our entire fleet undergoes a full inspection at least once a month.

In order to ensure that your normal, heavy and abnormal loads get to where they need to be safely, all of our drivers undergo proper driver training. Due to this, NHH has a low accident record.

NHH Has Taken on Many Major Transport Projects

Over the years, National Heavy Haulage has undertaken many major transport and specialised projects. We have also been the Transport Manager for the SASOL Petroleum project in Temane, Mozambique. We oversaw all abnormal transport, Rig moves and Mob and Demob in 2003/2004 & 2008.
