Lumber Hauling

Depending on your industry, lumber is an essential commodity for your business. Operating without it is impossible, so you occasionally need high-quality lumber transportation services to keep things rolling.

That's where A-1 Auto Transport comes into play. We can haul any kind of lumber using first-class trailers and reliable safety mechanisms.

What Lumber Can You Haul With A-1 Auto Transport?

Shipping wood is one of the most flexible types of shipping because there are virtually no limitations on what kind of wood you can relocate.

A-1 Auto Transport can move any type of lumber. We frequently work with alder, ash, cedar, maple, birch, oak, pine, basswood, poplar, cherry, and walnut. We also specialize in shipping exotic kinds, including mahogany and beech. Your timber will be in safe hands, regardless of the species.

How Much Does It Cost to Haul Lumber?

The price of shipping lumber depends on several factors:

  • Amount of timber
  • Lumber weight
  • Distance
  • Size and shape of the lumber

Like with any other transport, the more you haul lumber shipments, the less money you'll have to pay per pound. As a result, small shipments are generally expensive, so you may want to get more lumber before scheduling the service.

Another detail you should consider is the delivery times. If you're on a tight schedule to ship wood, the transport will be costlier because the driver needs to work faster.

Weather is also essential. Snowstorms may prevent the driver from taking standard routes, raising the shipment cost.

Finally, you may want to invest in additional safety measures, such as hauling your lumber in enclosed trailers. These protect your timber from the elements, but they're more expensive than open trailers.

What Should You Look for in Your Lumber Hauling Company?

When transporting your lumber, you shouldn't book just about any carrier. You need a company that meets all critical criteria, like A-1 Auto Transport. The criteria include:

  • Certifications – The only way to ensure your lumber arrives in one piece is to work with a certified provider. Some of the certifications your company should have include CBSA, C-TPAT, ASFC, FAST, CSA, ACE, PIP, and ACI. They guarantee your timber will be handled properly.
  • Reasonable prices – You don't want to burn a hole in your pocket when hauling lumber. That's why your carrier should offer reasonable prices.
  • Order tracking – You should be able to check the status of your lumber throughout the journey through order tracking. This allows you to make the necessary arrangements at the timber's destination on time.
  • Suitable Transport Equipment - You need a company that have the appropriate equipment to transport wood of any size.

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.
