How to Ship a Cold Planer?

Since a cold planer is such a large piece of equipment, only certain transport companies will have the capabilities necessary to ship it. Call several reputable transport companies to ask about their experience in shipping cold planers and other heavy equipment. Hire a transporter that assures their delivery and even offers insurance coverage during the transport.

About the Process of Shipping a Cold Planer

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

If you do not wish to ship your cold planer through open air methods, ask the transporter if it is possible to ship the cold planer through an enclosed form of transport. Enclosed shipping methods use large shipping containers to harbor the equipment from outside elements during its travels.

Insurance Coverage during Transport

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 cold planer even during a transport.

...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.

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.
