How to Ship a Combine?

Shipping heavy equipment isn’t simple. It takes training, the latest in transport equipment and technology, and experience to safely deliver such large farming equipment. Although not all transport companies have this ability, there are many that offer heavy equipment shipping services. The key is to make sure they have the right characteristics such as a good reputation and proper credentials. You don’t want to trust just anyone with such an important and expensive task.

Your Transport Options…

In most cases, you’ll have a few options. Usually, open air methods of transport are preferred due to their more affordable costs, but container methods are also an option. For ground transports, an open air method includes securing the combine to the back of a raised or lowered flatbed trailer. This leaves the combine open to all elements but with its durability, it’s rare that there’s any issues. The biggest thing with open air transports is that the professionals hauling it, make sure it is secured properly and according to code for the transport.

Container options won’t be offered by all transport companies. It is a more detailed form of transport that provides more protection. The combine is placed and secured within a shipping container sometimes as large as 40ft. This container is then placed on a ship or trailer. The complexity of this shipping method makes it more expensive.

No matter what transport method and services you choose for your combine, the transport company provides at least the minimal insurance requirements. Realistically, it is in your best interest to make sure your combine is fully insured during the transport. You may be able to purchase additional insurance coverage through your transporter.
