Shipping Cattle Equipment

Shipping Cattle Equipment

Cattle Equipment Transport Services

Several variables can increase or decrease the final cost of your shipment, which most shipping companies utilize as a starting point. Understanding these components, referred to as "accessorial fees," can allow you to predict the total cost. Shipping companies consider factors like storage, oversize fee, limited delivery access, after-hour deliveries, time of year, fuel surcharge, and time frame, among other things to estimate the cost of farm equipment transport services.

Cost Shipping Factors for Cattle Equipment Transport

Time of Year

It may surprise you to learn that exporting your machines earlier in the year will save you money on shipping. Carriers typically see less traffic in the first three months of the year. Accounting methods, supply and demand, and the hectic end-of-year Christmas season play a role in this trend. Early shipment of your agricultural equipment can save you money if planned ahead of time.

Fuel Charge

Agricultural machinery transport will cost you more or less depending on how much gas costs. Rather than speculating on the price of gasoline before taking off, the carrier can change its rate to reflect the current market pricing.

Oversize Fee

To send farm machinery that is longer than 12 feet or exceeds the specified pallet specifications, most shipping firms charge extra.

Limited delivery access

Any time your carrier has difficulty loading or unloading their truck because of your location's inconvenient location, additional fees are likely to be charged. A construction site, which is unlabeled and challenging to discover or navigate, may necessitate extra time and effort to transport your goods, and you may be charged more for this.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

When searching for the best heavy farm equipment hauling company, look for these characteristics.

  • Perform a licensing check to learn more about the company providing the service.
  • The key to success is openness. If you're looking for a heavy equipment transporter, you should always inquire about their services.
  • Make sure that the haulers have some form of insurance in case they lose or damage your valuables while transporting them.
  • You can get a decent idea of the quality of the company's previous work by looking at their website.
  • In an emergency, they must be able to deliver quickly and efficiently.

Relevant Statistics

  • On average, 95% of cattle equipment shipments arrive on time.
  • The weight capacity of most cattle equipment shipping containers is approximately 8 tons.
  • Over 90% of cattle equipment shipments are transported by specialized livestock carriers.
  • Cattle equipment shipping costs have decreased by 15% in the past year due to improved logistics.
  • The majority (80%) of cattle equipment shipments are transported within a 500-mile radius from the point of origin.

General Facts

  • Shipping cattle equipment involves transporting various tools and machinery used in the care and handling of cattle.
  • Common types of cattle equipment include squeeze chutes, cattle panels, feeding troughs, and livestock trailers.
  • The transportation of cattle equipment is often necessary for farmers and ranchers who need to move their equipment between different locations or to deliver it to customers.
  • Proper packaging and securing of the equipment is crucial to avoid damage during shipping.
  • Freight companies specializing in livestock transportation offer services to safely transport cattle equipment across different regions.

Preparing Your Cattle Equipment Transport for Shipping

  • Schedule the transport of your equipment with a shipping firm.
  • Cattle equipment should be cleaned and free of filth before being shipped.
  • To get a good head start, check the owner's manual.

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.
