Frequently Asked Questions
How Will the Company Transport My Aerial Work Platform?
Transporting an aerial work platform is relatively simple as long as you have the right equipment. That's why choosing a reliable company is so important. A flatbed or lowboy trailer is suitable because one provides plenty of flat space while the other lets you adjust the platform according to height.
The platform will be folded to its base, loaded onto the trailer using a ramp, and secured on each side to prevent the wheels from moving sideways during the journey. It's necessary to fold it in entirely because unnecessary movement may cause damage.
The driver can then easily transport the platform long distances without worrying about its safety.
Can I Transport My Aerial Work Platform on My Own?
It may seem like a great plan to transport your platform on your own, but it's not efficient. For one, it needs to be secured carefully, so the wheels don't move around on the trailer. You might not have the necessary flatbed or lowboy trailer either.
The electric wires must also be carefully wrapped and secured to ensure they don't spread out or cause shock. Its battery must be disconnected in case it shocks someone.
Although a special permit might not be required, there are still inspections if transporting the platform out-of-state since it counts as heavy equipment.
It's best to leave the transport to experienced professionals because they'll know the correct procedure to transport it safely and efficiently.
How Can I Be Sure My Aerial Work Platform Will Reach Me On Time?
Most leading shipping companies, including A1 Auto transport, provide a GPS tracking system with your vehicle that lets you see exactly where your order is. This perk enables you to estimate how long it'll take for the aerial work platform to get to you.
If it's essential for your business, you can change your operations accordingly and navigate orders. You won't have to worry about uncertainty and disappoint your customers.
Logistics is essential, and the GPS tracking system gives you the real-time location on a predetermined path given to the drivers after considering factors like traffic and weather to make the delivery as efficient as possible.
Do I Have to Unload My Aerial Work Platform Myself?
No, A1 Auto transport will do the unloading for you. We offer quality services that include door-to-door shipping. Although you can opt for terminal shipping, you'll have to transport the platform from the terminal to your destination.
If you go for our door-to-door services, we'll bring the aerial work platform to your address and take it off the trailer using a ramp. It's best to go for this method because a shipping company has all the equipment necessary to handle the weight and dimensions of your platform, so there are no safety concerns.
Although you'll have to complete the platform's set-up yourself, you don't have to worry about the loading, transport, and unloading.
