Transporting Farm Equipment

Your agricultural tractor is likely the backbone of your farming operation, and this workhorse carries out many essential duties on a daily basis. From planting, harrowing, and tilling to disking and plowing - your tractor wears many different hats on the farm. A tractor is also extremely useful for towing around a trailer, hauling goods, or moving equipment to various locations on your land. Transporting tractors and heavy agricultural machinery over a long distance may not be feasible driving them on roads hence the need to use tractor shipping services.

Types of Agricultural Machinery Transport

There are different ways to safely transport farm equipment. These depend on the size, weight, and number of farming equipment you want to transport. Here are some common ways to transport farm machinery.

Single Farm Tractor Transport

A single tractor is transported over a flatbed trailer in an open-air transport arrangement. The farm equipment hauler needs to ensure that the tractor is fixed in place so the vehicle is stable during transport and is not affected by the prevailing wind.

Enclosed Transport

A tractor can be transported in a shipping container, truck, or van. This is the best and safest option. However, to transport tractors and heavy machinery safely in an enclosure, ensure the equipment meets the size and weight of the container or truck.

Multiple farm equipment tractor

Just like auto shipping, you can have multiple tractors or equipment shipped on the same vehicle or container. It's important to follow safety procedures to avoid or minimize damages while transporting your equipment.

Preparing Your Equipment For Transport

Before you ship tractors locally or abroad, put your machinery in the best conditions. Clean your equipment and remove all personal belongings. You can detach parts that can easily fall off during transport and keep them in a safe place in the transport vehicle.

There are standard procedures that you can find in manufacturer's manuals detailing what to do before shipping including things like disconnecting batteries, etc.

Take photographs of your farm machinery so you can have evidence if anything happens during transport. Also, make sure the documentations are valid and available if required by authorities.

Experienced Farm Equipment Transport Services

With such heavy use, you may find your tractor in need of repair - meaning that it must be transported into town (or to the next one over). This can be a tricky procedure, especially if you don't have the right equipment to do the job safely.

Hiring a reputable company like A1 Auto Transport. When you use our tractor transport service, will ensure that no one gets injured in the process or your valuable tractor isn't damaged during the move. With over two decades of experience and all the necessary equipment required, A1 will make short work of your tractor move.

Many Moving Options Offered

Having your tractor transported professionally isn't just useful if it requires repair - as our service can also allow you to move to a new farm. Or, you may be thinking about buying another tractor instead, and A1 can pick up your new agricultural equipment from across the country and deliver it right to your door.

This makes it much easier to find the best deal, or purchase a hard-to-find model that you can't seem to find in your local market. Finally, with the ability to ship your tractor internationally, A1 even makes it possible for you to sell your vehicle to a buyer overseas.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
