Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Barbados

The act of shipping heavy equipment and oversized cargo to Barbados from the United States is best taken on with the assistance of professional transporters. With the experience and connections of A1 Auto Transport, you can get your overseas transport underway in no time. We have been helping our customers ship heavy equipment to other countries for decades and can make the entire process a breeze.

There is no limit to the types of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we can have transported. With our variety of shipping services and access to all the best shipping technology and equipment, we are certain we can carry out your transport. Throughout our time we’ve shipped the following types of heavy and oversized cargo:

  • Farm Equipment
  • Tractors
  • Backhoes
  • Forklifts
  • Construction Equipment
  • Excavators
  • Pavers
  • Skidders
  • Loaders
  • Industrial Machinery and Equipment
  • Large Vehicles and Dump Trucks
  • Cranes and more…

There are many other pieces of equipment, machinery and vehicles that we consider as heavy or oversized. Typically we consider any cargo that won’t fit into a 40ft container as oversized. However, if it weighs substantially more than your standard vehicle, it may be deemed as heavy equipment. If our transport specialists believe that your cargo meets this description, they will inform you of your shipping options.

Overseas Shipping Methods Available for Heavy Equipment

When you’re shipping heavy equipment through A1, you will have several shipping options. We offer four transport methods to our customers with oversized cargo and heavy equipment, but depending on the type of cargo you have, you may have fewer options. We will inform you of your choices after you describe your equipment or cargo to us over the phone. Here is a description of each of our overseas shipping services to give you some insight before you call in…

  • Container Transport- This type of transport method offers the greatest security. By enclosing your cargo within walls and a ceiling, it will be safe from inclement weather and other outside hazards. This is the most expensive method yet very cost efficient.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- With this shipping method your cargo is secured to a flat rack that looks a large metal frame. Once it is fastened properly, the rack is placed on top of the ship. The rack is removed from the ship in the same manner.
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping- The RoRo method is the cheapest form of transport. It is an open air service that requires your large vehicle or piece of equipment to be operable. That way it can roll onto the ship and off of the ship.
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping- The LoLo shipping method is best for individuals transporting large broken down vehicles and crated heavy equipment overseas. A crane is used to lift the cargo onto the ship as well as off of the ship.

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!
