How to Prepare Your Heavy Construction Equipment for Shipping by Hauling Company

Having heavy construction equipment shipped to a new job site or back to the warehouse requires careful preparation, for both the safety of your shipment and for your wallet. Here are some tips on how to prepare your heavy construction equipment for shipping by a hauling company.

Have Accurate Paper Work

Make sure you have all necessary paperwork in order. This may include a bill of sale, title, registration and lien documents. Having this information handy will speed up the shipping process.

Snap Your Shipment

Take pictures of your construction equipment before it is picked up for shipping to provide proof in 6case damage occurs during transport. This can also be helpful if you need to make an insurance claim.

Drain all Fluid

Be sure to drain all tanks, such as fuel tanks and coolant tanks, before the equipment is loaded onto the hauler’s truck. It's also a good idea to check for any loose pieces or parts that could become damaged in transit.

Protect Your Equipment

Make sure your construction equipment is properly secured on the hauler’s truck. You may need additional equipment to secure the load and make it safe for travel.

Do Your Research

Before signing a contract with a hauling company, take some time to do your research. Make sure you are working with an experienced, reputable company that has insurance coverage in case anything goes wrong during transit.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

...my 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.

Luis Rodriguez

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

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.
