A ballast tractor is an heavy equipment used to carry heavy loads such as bridge sections, ship sections, oil rig modules, power station components, and other heavy haulage . Ballast tractors tend to provide appreciable torque on low speed, thanks their high-powered, low-geared engines. A-1 Auto Transport recommends contacting them for a quote on shipping a Ballast Tractor based on a number of factors. We offer an online delivery quote calculator as well. Ballast tractors can be shipped both domestically and internationally by A-1 Auto Transport. Our shipping rates are low, and our shipping schedule is flexible.

Cost Shipping Factors for Ballast Tractor

We consider a variety of factors before calculating a price that is suitable for your project. Among them are the following:

Your project's cost will be greatly affected by the weight of your Ballast Tractor. It will cost more to transport a heavier Ballast Tractor or other industrial machinery.

The method of transportation greatly influences the cost of transporting your Ballast Tractor. Enclosed shipping is more expensive than open-air shipping. This may result in higher shipping costs if you choose enclosed shipping.

It will cost more to ship your Ballast Tractor across the country than to a local state or city. Shipping costs are directly impacted by the distance between your origin and destination.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

For heavy equipment shipping businesses to transport horse equipment, certain conditions must be met. For instance, they must be insured. In order to run your business effectively, you must protect this equipment while it is being moved. An insured transportation company is the only way to do this.

A company with the necessary experience is also important. Before a corporation can move heavy equipment over long distances, it must first fully understand it. Therefore, knowledge is vital.

Select a company that is legally allowed to operate in your state and across the nation. Look for the DOT number of a shipper in the database of the relevant federal agency. It is more likely that your equipment will be stolen if you ship with an untrustworthy shipper.

Preparing Your Ballast Tractor for Shipping

Get your Ballast Tractor ready for shipping to prevent damage. Keep these tips in mind when preparing your Ballast Tractor for shipping:

If shipping with an open carrier, cover and secure the delicate parts of the Ballast Tractor. If your Ballast Tractor is dirty, damage may be hard to see. So, make sure it is clean before shipping. Photograph the Tractor before transport.

As you disassemble the parts, label each component precisely to prevent loss during shipping. Additionally, naming them makes it easier to put them together at your destination.

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.
