Frequently Asked Questions
Technically if you rent a small flatbed and a driver, you can avoid using a transportation company and hence the costs that come with them.
However, even if this is the cheapest option, it's not the safest. If you're considering this, you probably don't have experience with transport and may not be able to tell if your hired driver is capable or not. Also, there's no guarantee of the safety of your cargo. Transportation companies provide several customer services and guarantees that ensure you can trust them.
When conducting a search for suitable companies, check customer reviews and pick companies with 4.4 to 5 stars. Also, read the comments of customers before making your decision on which companies to shortlist.
If you're transporting the grab separately, then a small flatbed trailer is the most suitable though most transportation companies suggest you avoid that.
If you're getting a grab transported, you're likely also transporting a piece of heavier equipment to the same destination.
Rotating grabs are commonly used with excavators. Some machines can range anywhere from 10,000 pounds to 150000 pounds. If it falls under the legal weight limit, the rotating grab won't affect the delivery and will still count as an average load.
If the equipment already requires special permits, you'll need them even if you transport the grab separately. Instead of increasing the cost of transportation by moving both loads individually, connect the rotating grab to the excavator and then ship them.
It will have no effect on the delivery and save you a lot of time and trouble.
Yes, but you should make sure to take the necessary precautions.
Since a rotating grab is a standard load, you can transport it yourself. Checkout videos on YouTube on how to prepare your equipment for transport. When considering getting it transported separately, most would prefer to rent a flatbed and a driver to transport the grab. Since many people are inexperienced in transporting big loads, they'll feel better relying on a professional.
When transporting the rotating grab on its own, make sure that you pack it carefully. If the product is relatively new and you still have the original packaging using it is the best possible option.
As for those who don't have said packaging, ensure that you pack it in a way your grab won't take any damage if it collides with something during transport.
That's why it's better to leave it to a shipping company instead.
No, special permits are only required for heavy equipment over the legal limit of height, weight, length, or width.
A rotating grab falls well below any of the numbers denoting these limits. The legal limit for height is 8.5 feet, the same as the legal limit for width. The legal limit for weight is 46000 pounds, whereas an average rotating grab weighs only 500 to 1000 pounds,
This means that the grab is an average load, and movers can easily transport it over distances without a permit. The rotating grab is an attachment connected to heavy machinery such as an excavator.
Your shipping company understands all the details, you can contact them on phone to know what is required.
