While most people are familiar with dump trucks, those employed by the construction and mining industry are a little different. In fact, most mining operations only utilize off-highway dump trucks, and the largest of these don’t travel over public roadways. Termed a haul truck when used for mining - they carry away overburden, haul other waste material and deliver paydirt to the wash plant (1).
A Shipping Challenge
Moving these large pieces of machinery presents a challenge - and you need a professional hauling company that’s up to the task. A1 Auto Transport has more than 20 years of experience in the field, having moved nearly every type of heavy machinery in that time. You won’t be dealing with unseasoned crews, but will enjoy the expertise and knowledge that our personnel can provide.
Haul trucks, especially the larger models, must be loaded with great care. There’s a potential for disaster if the correct equipment and procedure isn’t employed. We know how to safely load your valuable equipment, and to secure it correctly so no damage occurs during transit.
We can also provide enhanced services, including GPS tracking, express delivery and door-to-door pickup and dropoff. This last one is highly convenient - especially if your haul truck isn’t road legal. As you won’t be able to drive it to a distant shipping depot, having us pick it up at your location is ideal.
Keeping your vehicle safe is likely foremost in your mind, and we are firmly focused on protecting your assets. Not only do we secure the load properly for safe transport - all shipments get full insurance coverage free of charge.
We’ll build a custom rate based upon the details of your shipping request, including the exact size and weight of the vehicle being shipped. Give us a call today, to get your free, personalized quote right over the phone.
