Watch our specialist 80 tonne lorry loaders come into their own in this short time-lapse video, showing the latest one-day school build for our client, Net Zero Buildings.
The capabilities of our Lorries mean that we can carry out a full range of specialist transport and installation services; from delivering units to site or moving plant and machinery on site or site-to-site. We operate 80 t/m lorry loaders that conduct a full 360° lift at full capacity, which often eliminates the need for additional mobile cranes on site on. This saves time, money and reduces the need for unnecessary road closures.
Advanté is also FORS Gold accredited and BSI registered for Safety – OHSAS 18001, Environment - ISO 14001, Quality - ISO 9001 and PAS 99.

Advanté Transport worked with Pers Removals to move a baby grand piano from the upstairs balcony of a house in Hampstead, to the street outside. Once the piano was attached to the hook by slings, our Fassi F820RA 2.28 Lorry Loader and driver was able to lift and safely manoeuvre the piano swiftly to the ground below.
Despite the pouring rain, it was a great team effort by all.

The examples below will give you an indication of the variety of projects we have undertaken in live railway environments.
- Colliers Wood - This project involved installation of four units on the roof of an Underground station. To achieve this required the use of an 80 tonne crane, partial road closures of the South Circular Road and specially designed placing pads to enable the units to sit on the roof without causing structural damage to the parapet wall.
- West Kensington - Within this project we were required to set up an operational centre for the maintenance of the Northern Line, which was based in the centre of London. Six 60x12ft accommodation units were lifted down a railway embankment, using a 120 tonne crane. Advanté arranged all police escorts, road closures and parking suspensions. We designed, built and installed the compound including all steel walkways and stairways.
- Jubilee Line - Whilst this one is now quite some time ago, our experience on this is still very relevant today. We were selected for this project due to our previous performance, which had given our Client the confidence that we would be able to achieve the deadline set for this high profile project, which led to the opening of the stations for the Millennium Dome. We were required to set up all temporary accommodation relating to all stations within the Jubilee Line extension. For this Project, multi duplexing units were required to provide an operational base for all station staff. The site-up included changing rooms, showers as well as offices and welfare facilities.
This project involved the installation of a compound site set-up, which was situated under power line cables. By liaising with the Electricity Board and the design and utilisation of special lifting points on the unit, enabled the jib to maintain a safe, working clearance from the power cables above. The end result is shown below.
Detailed Method Statements & Risk Assessments and lifting instructions were completed for the Client, which detailed the way in which the units were to be placed. The design and utilisation of special lifting points on the unit and close liaison with the Electricity Board, enabled the jib to maintain a safe, working clearance from the power cables above.
We were requested to install a temporary changing room for theatre staff in the central atrium of the hospital where access could only be gained by lifting the units over the existing building.
Due to the fact that the hospital needed to remain operational at all times, with patients remaining in the wards, Health and Safety was of the utmost priority. Working closely with staff and other stakeholders, the units were lifted into place with minimum disruption. Once again, as the pictures show we were able to succeed.
