Shipping a Agricultural Robot

Agricultural Robot Shipping Services

Agricultural robots are specialized machines used in commercial farming. They can do things like analyzing and carrying out tasks without assistance from the farmer. Examples are harvesting robots, unmanned aerial vehicles, seeding drones, machines used in robotic greenhouses and crop health monitoring, weed control, as well as in precision agriculture.

An agricultural robot is the kind of piece of technology that can easily be damaged if transported by someone who doesn't have the technical know-how.

So, many farmers outsource the transportation of agricultural robots. The cost of doing this varies greatly depending on several factors. It can be as little as $100 for 100 miles or as much as $500 for 200 miles.

Cost Shipping Factors for Agricultural Robots

Some factors will affect the shipping cost of an agricultural robot, like the model of the robot and the destination you have in mind.

The Model

The cost of agricultural robots will not be the same for all models. So, the particular model you want to transport will affect the shipping cost.

Some models will be more expensive to ship than others, owing to the size and value of the robot. Robots that are valued higher incur higher insurance costs.

So, when you're shipping an agricultural robot, inform the shipping company of the exact model you have and also of any modifications that you might've made. This way, you will get an accurate shipping quote.

The location you are shipping the agricultural robot to will influence the shipping cost. The destination is important because some locations are more difficult to deliver to than others.

You can expect to pay a bit more if access to your destination isn't straightforward. For example, if the destination is a farm with a dirt access road, then shipping will cost more than if it was within a city.

Other times, things like the space required to offload the robot will affect the shipping cost.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

There are things to keep in mind as you search for a company to ship your agricultural robot. They include things like specialized equipment and transparent shipping bills.

Shipping an agricultural robot is no small thing because a single misstep can damage the robot. An agricultural robot is an investment and should be handled with care. So, ensure that the company you want to hire has the adequate equipment to transport it.

You will not also want a shipping bill that doesn't seem justifiable. This is why you need a company that is knowledgeable enough to explain how the final price was determined. Get reviews from former customers of the company and take note of the company's response to your questions.

Preparing Your Agricultural Robot for Shipping

  • Check all the screws, bolts, and wires, and ensure they are in the right places before dropping off the robot for shipping.
  • Before the shipping crew picks up your agricultural robot, take pictures and document its condition.

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.
