Heavy Equipment Shipping Information

Special shipping considerations must be used for heavy equipment because of its size and weight. Using a specialized hauler that meets the specifications of shipping bulldozers, cranes, tractors, or other heavy industrial or farm equipment ensures safe and efficient hauling. Providing accurate dimensions and weight for the transporter is the first step in shipping heavy equipment. These specifications help the transporter determine if any special considerations need to be made and what is the most appropriate type of transporter. For more information in determining the dimensions and weight of your equipment, please consult your owner's manual or our online equipment specification site, Freight Specs.com. There are various heavy equipment shipping options that can be considered once these dimensions are determined. Equipment can be shipped on a flatbed, towed, or may require a special trailer. It is important to carefully research your options to determine the best choice to fit your needs.

Transporting Heavy Equipment

Choosing a qualified transporter is your next step. Hauling Heavy Equipment can be a difficult task and requires choosing a company that specializes in this type of shipping. An experienced broker can help take some of the guesswork out of the shipping process by working directly with a carrier or an owner/operator. Preparing your equipment for transport should be done prior to the day of the move. Special preparations for overweight or oversized equipment need to be considered to ensure that your equipment arrives safely, and is prepared for any adverse conditions that may be encountered in transit. Working with your trucking company will prepare you for any necessary permits you may need for the day of the move.

Heavy Equipment Insurance

A certain amount of insurance is required for all legal carriers, but additional insurance may need to be purchased in order for you to be properly protected. Knowing what your policy covers and how to make a claim should the need arise is important when purchasing heavy equipment freight insurance.
