How Much Will It Cost To Ship Bulldozers?

Each bulldozer shipping and hauling project is different, so we can’t give you an accurate estimate without learning more about your bulldozer, its destination, your required shipping time-frame, and other such details. However, there are a few factors that tend to have the biggest influence on the cost of shipping and hauling your bulldozer.

  • Size (dimensions) – Naturally, the dimensions of your bulldozer affect its bulk and the cost of shipping. Large bulldozers will cost more to ship, while less bulky models may be cheaper. For example, the cost of hauling your bulldozer will be quite a bit higher if your bulldozer qualifies as an oversize load, due to the costs of hiring pilot cars and getting special permits.
  • Weight – Weight is another factor that will have an effect on the cost of hauling your bulldozer. Lighter equipment is easier to secure, haul and ship. Heavier bulldozers, on the other hand, may need to be broken down into smaller parts, and may require multiple trucks to ship. For example, the blade or other components may need to be removed from a bulldozer to keep it under the oversize load limit.
  • Distance – Since the cost of shipping is usually determined per mile traveled, the cost of shipping a bulldozer a long distance will be much higher than shipping it a short distance. Counter-intuitively, though, you will pay a higher price-per-mile for short distances, compared to long distances, even though the overall cost will be much lower.
  • Domestic or overseas – Shipping bulldozers overseas brings a lot of red tape and complications, and requires navigating things like import fees, hauling the equipment on a cargo ship, and other such things, making the overall process quite a bit more expensive compared to domestic shipping.
  • Deadline for delivery – If you need rush shipping for your bulldozer, you’ll pay more than you would if you did not have an urgent deadline for delivery. To get the best rate, we recommend planning ahead so that your bulldozer has plenty of time to arrive.

There are many other factors that may affect the cost of shipping your equipment, but these are the most common. For more information about how much bulldozer shipping and hauling will cost, contact A-1 Auto Transport right away.

Shipping Options for Bulldozers

In most situations, your bulldozer will transport through an open air method. By ground transportation, this means a large trailer. If shipping overseas, a flatbed ship is used. These are both cost efficient, affordable forms of transport. It does lack the protection provided by other shipping options, leaving the bulldozer susceptible to poor weather conditions.

Some transport companies may offer container shipping services for your bulldozer depending on its size and weight. Often times, customers ship bulldozer pieces and parts through container transport methods. Shipping by container provides the machine with more security from outdoor hazards.

Insurance Coverage

Whether you choose container methods or open air methods, make sure the transport company offers insurance coverage. By law, a licensed transporter must carry insurance coverage at least up to the minimum standards. However, this doesn’t always cover the full value of your bulldozer. Ask the transport company about their insurance policy and what it covers. If they do not provide enough protection ask if you can purchase more. You may also want to call your insurance agent to see if your coverage protects the bull dozer even during a transport. If so, it’s unnecessary for the transport company to charge you more for their insurance coverage.

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!
