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.

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

  • 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.
  • 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.

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

Factors to Consider When Selecting Heavy Equipment Transport Company

When selecting a heavy equipment transport company, reviews and ratings should be taken into consideration to make sure you are getting the highest quality service. Rates are also an important factor when deciding on a company and it is essential to look at their experience and any insurance coverage they provide before committing to one.

Additionally, take into account the shipping method and inquire about Lake Superior port - the largest dry bulk port in North America that specializes in construction material shipping. Inland port is another great alternative due to its strategic location near three of Minnesota's interstate highways and four international airports, making it easy for shipments between cities like the twin cities. With over a decade of experience, this specialized fleet of tractor trailers has continued to serve as an ideal option for both short-hauls and long-hauls.

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.
