Drilling Machine Transport Services

Drill rig shipping, drilling machine shipping - Diamond core drilling, well drilling, core drilling, offshore drilling - crawler oil drilling machine shipping - drill bits and drill rigs

A drilling machine (or drilling rig) is built for just one purpose - to plumb the earth's depths. Though it comes in different types, common applications of this machinery include the creation of wells for water, drilling at oil rigs (oil and gas wells), or for scientific drilling purposes. More specialized drilling equipment can also be used for testing of soil, substrata or groundwater. They are also employed to lay cables or utilities under the ground (1).

We're Flexible

Drilling machines can range in size and type from small units which can be moved manually by one operator or driver, to towering rigs and heavy loads meant for deep drilling. When attempting to transport your drilling machine, the specific dimensions and weight will determine the shipping method used. Whether your drill rig was designed to break up into its component parts easily, will also dictate the transport options and trailers available to you.

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.
