Dump truck transport services

Nearly every child that was fascinated with construction equipment, had a toy dump truck when they were little. You may have graduated to the real thing, and these workhorses can carry load after load of material without stopping. Designed to haul and then dump the material at the destination, by lifting the bed using hydraulic rams - articulated dump trucks are a staple at most construction projects.

Classification of Dump Trucks

Dump trucks are classified based on their size, dump body and dumping mechanism, and the specific purposes for which they are built. Here are some common types of dump and haul trucks.

  • Standard dump truck
  • Semi-trailer end dump truck
  • Side dump trucks
  • Super dump truck
  • Transfer dump trucks
  • Highway dump trucks
  • Off-highway dump trucks
  • Roll off dump trucks

Standard dump trucks have their dump body mounted to the frame and a bed raised by a vertical hydraulic ram mounted under the front of the body. If the bed is raised by a horizontal hydraulic ram, it will have a lever arrangement between frame rails and the back of the bed which is hinged at the back of the truck.

Not Built For Long Distance

Typically, dump trucks get around under their own power, as they're designed to drive down the road. Yet, long-distance travel isn't their strength, and you may be loathed to put that many miles and engine hours on your expensive equipment. Another consideration is the climbing cost of fuel, and these heavy-duty machines weren't built with efficiency in mind (but for torque and power instead).

Expert Transport

All of these reasons make hiring a professional dump truck hauling company, an attractive option. A1 Auto Transport can quickly and expertly load and secure your dump truck - no matter its size and weight. With a full fleet of the latest transport equipment such as flatbed trailers, we can handle jobs that other outfits can't.

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.
