Hiab Bodyworks


Verhelst Transportation in the Netherlands explain why they choice Hiab FrameWorks for their crane installations

"We had certain ideas about what a crane should look like and Hiab Factory Installation Center was the only supplier who could realise our vision quickly, properly and in line with our demands. They´re very flexible when it comes to the build-up. You could really tell that at Hiab the customer comes first"
Jacky Verhelst, Owner Verhelst Transport

Get the body you’ve always dreamed of!

Hiab BodyWorks makes getting the perfect loader body an affordable reality for the first time ever. Our core concept is straightforward and modular. Take one of our three standard models, then simply add the options and accessories you need. It’s a quick and cost-effective way to get the solution that’s just right for your vehicles and applications.

Light weight

Lighter body enables higher payloads

Hiab BodyWorks are significantly lighter than any other loader body currently available. This means you can carry the same payload more economically, a higher payload at no extra cost, or any combination of the two. It’s a win for your bottom line, and a win for the environment, too.

Easy to install

Save up to 75% on installation time

Our pre-manufactured modules make installation a breeze – around two weeks compared with up to eight weeks for a traditional loader body. This cuts 75% off the waiting time for a truck to be delivered and ready for use.

Easy to maintain

Saves time and labour

Our modular concept is designed for mechanical simplicity. The bolted construction is 100% weld-free, so parts are easy to remove and replace. That means big savings for you when it comes to maintenance time and labour costs.


Advanced anti-corrosion coating

Corrosion is a killer for loader bodies. To ensure a long service life, Hiab BodyWorks are treated with our unique nDurance anti-corrosion coating. nDurance is Hiab’s advanced nanotechnology paint process, and it provides the industry’s toughest protection in all weathers.
