Oversized Cargo To Sri Lanka

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Sri Lanka

At A1 Auto Transport, we can ensure your load is shipped securely abroad by utilizing high caliber, tough transport gear and the most recent shipping innovations. With all that we have delivered in the past, there truly isn't any type of heavy equipment or oversized cargo we’ve come across that we can't have delivered outside of the U.S.

How A1 Carries Out International Transports

We have a few diverse delivery strategies we offer for the individuals who wish to transport equipment or oversized cargo off to another country. These techniques are totally protected strategies for anyone in need of overseas shipping services yet what is accessible to you will rely upon the kind of cargo you're transporting. For more information in regards to our overseas administrations, we decided to give you insight regarding each of our shipping methods...

  • Container Transport
  • Flat Rack Shipping
  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping
  • Lift On/Lift Off Shipping

If your heavy equipment can slide safely into a 40ft shipping container then you should be able to use this enclosed transport method for your cargo’s delivery to Sri Lanka. The roll on/roll off shipping method is the cheapest open air transport service we offer yet it requires your vehicle or equipment drives onto and off of the ship using a ramp. Flat rack shipping secures your cargo to a metal frame before it’s placed on the boat, while lift on/lift off shipping is mostly recommended to crated cargo and those with inoperable vehicles.

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.
