What is the Low Loader Vehicle Transport?

Does this scenario seem familiar?

You have a vehicle you want shipped to another state and you need a shipping process that is quick, simple, and cost-effective.

A lot of the companies you have talked to are offering convoluted car shipping methods that seem like more effort than they are worth.

Car shipping doesn’t need to be complicated

Look, if you are like us, you just want a simple, time-tested method of shipping your vehicle without having to drive it yourself!

We have the answer: low loader vehicle transport

Low loaders are a great option to ship your vehicles by land. You can either use an entire low loader (if you are shipping many vehicles or very large vehicles), or you can share one with other clients.

Car shipping companies are great at using low loaders since the use of loaders is prominent regarding car shipment across the nation.

They already have the equipment and can offer you rates that you will not find anywhere else. Also keep in mind, that you may need a specific type of low loader depending on the type of vehicle you are shipping.

This should not be an issue, however. If you need to ship a tractor, for instance, you will likely be able to find car shipping company that can help.

The great thing about low loaders is that they are versatile, and that you can ship a great variety of vehicles using only one. In this article, we will cover the main types of low loaders that your car shipping company will likely be using. We will also cover the benefits of using a low loader to ship your vehicles.

What is a Low Loader?

Let’s take it back a step and talk basics. If you are looking to ship your vehicle domestically, you are going to need to know what a low loader is in the first place.

Even if you do not know what a low leader is by name, you have most likely seen at least one in your life. Low loaders are large trailers that transport vehicles on them. The vehicle is driven onto the bed of the loader and secured.

The “lowness” of a loader is implemented in order to load vehicles more easily. The ramps are long and ensure that workers loading vehicles onto the backs of loaders can manage it.

Types of Low Loaders

There are many different types of low loaders on the market. Here are five of the most common you may encounter.

  1. Fixed Gooseneck Low Loader: This is the lightest type of low loader. Fixed gooseneck low loaders are also lower to the ground than other types of low loaders. Being so low to the ground, as well as longer, vehicle owners oftentimes experience no issues loading their vehicles on the loader once the neck is lowered.
  2. Fixed-neck Low Loader: Fixed-neck low loaders cannot be detached from their cab. This means that all vehicles will need to be loaded from the back. Like the fixed gooseneck low loader, the fixed-neck low loader is also one of the lightest types of low loaders.
  3. Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck Low Loader: Hydraulic detachable gooseneck low loaders are very common, and are the most useful form of low loader. They compromise on weight and efficiency, but make up for it in loading speed and efficiency. This is the low loader to use if you are not yet sure of the exact process you will use to load your vehicle on a low loader.
  4. Mechanically-Detachable Gooseneck Low Loader: Mechanically-detachable gooseneck low loaders are lighter than hydraulic detachable low loaders, but they are a bit more difficult to load a vehicle onto. Nevertheless, many people use mechanically-detachable gooseneck low loaders to transport vehicles long distances, as they excel at long speciality hauls.
  5. Mechanical Folding Gooseneck Low Loader: Mechanical folding gooseneck low loaders are similar to fixed-neck low loaders, except that the ramp which you use to load your vehicle with folds, rather than stay in position.

Transporting Your Vehicle by Low Loader

A wide variety of vehicles can be transported by low loader. Farm equipment, heavy machinery, boats, SUVs, and even aircraft can be placed on the back of a low loader and transported across the country.

Major construction companies often transport heavy machinery across the country using low loaders because it is a cost-effective method of shipping such large machinery.

Here’s why low loader vehicle transport is the best choice

Can Accommodate a Wide Variety of Vehicles

Since low loaders are used for a wide variety of vehicles, from commercial sedans to farm equipment, it is likely that you will be able to use a low loader to transport your vehicles. The use of a low loader will ensure that your shipping costs are cost-efficient.

If you need to ship heavy equipment, the use of a low loader is a godsend. You will not have to dismantle your vehicle into parts to ship it. You can ship the vehicle as-is and drive it off the low loader once your vehicle reaches its destination.

Low Loaders Can be Driven on the Freeway

Some shipping vehicles need to drive at low speeds. Other shipping vehicles require an escort to warn other drivers of their presence. Transporting rocks from a quarry, for instance, may require an escort, as well as driving at low speeds so that rocks do not fly off the truck bed and hit the windshields of other cars. With a low loader, however, you can have your vehicles shipped easily and in a timely manner.

Time-Tested Car Shipping Method

Many vehicles have been transported by low loaders over the years. When domestic shipping a vehicle for instance, car owners often vie for using low loaders to open air transport their vehicles. When transporting your own vehicle in this manner, you are choosing a cost-efficient, and time-tested form of car shipment that every car shipping company will not only be familiar with, but have used countless times.

The Best Benefit of Using a Low Loader

The best benefit of using a low loader is one of convenience. Low loaders are popular and commonly-used to ship vehicles around the country. As a result, the shipment process will be efficient, and cost-effective. Your car shipping company of choice will have a deep knowledge of using a low loader as well, which will make the process of shipping your car a breeze. Now, all you have to do is start calling up companies!

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

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to 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!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
