A Hassle Free Experience Excavator Transport

Smaller than its big brother, a compact excavator is perfect for jobs where not as much power is needed. It’s also more easily maneuvered in close quarters, so it’s a good fit on cramped construction jobs or other applications where space is limited. Though they can range as heavy as 8.5 metric tons and still be considered compact, their lighter weight makes them easier to transport.

This may tempt you to tackle it yourself, if you’re planning a long or mid-range distance move in the near future. Though much more manageable than full-sized excavators, much can still go wrong, when moving machinery that weighs several tons. Its moving parts also must be expertly fastened down - otherwise disaster could strike will driving down the highway.

The Efficient Choice

In addition, long-distance transit is not typically cost-effective on a do-it-yourself basis. Once you factor in the cost of fuel, lodging and eating out - you’re likely only saving yourself a few dollars per hour. Thus, your time would be better spent at your regular job, where your per hour earnings are far more substantial.

Capable Service

From both a cost and safety standpoint, professional transport of your compact excavator is clearly the way to go. A1 Auto Transport has you covered, and we are adept at expertly loading, transporting and unloading your precious cargo. With door-to-door delivery available, you’ll be able to track the progress of your shipment in real-time.

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.
