Dairy Farm Equipment Hauling Transport Services

You may need to transfer equipment between dairy farms but if you don't already have an established relationship with a reliable carrier, extensive shipping equipment can be a complex undertaking. Many variables influence the cost of shipping heavy machinery, such as distance, equipment oversize, weight, dimensions, trailer size needed, etc.

Cost Shipping Factors for Dairy Farm Equipment Hauling

Equipment Oversize

Heavy equipment delivery becomes prohibitively expensive when permits and an accompanying vehicle are required for oversized/over-dimensional equipment.

Trailer Size Needed

Trailers are critical if you want to transport large equipment within the limits of what is allowed as a load. Flatbeds, step decks, and lowboys are the most common trailer designs used to move heavy machinery. Larger trailers cost more per mile to haul, so consider estimating your budget.

Distance and Density

A higher fee is likely if you need a vast machine to go 400 miles or more between a busy metro area in one part of the country and another part of the country. To get better pricing from the carrier, you need to be more flexible with your pick-up and delivery times. Large trucks have a tough time navigating congested metro regions, which can be impacted by traffic and road dangers. Increased chances of a problem arise as the driving distance increases.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

When looking for a shipping company for your heavy equipment, consider the following things to get a reputable company.

  • Hire a shipping company with the best set of shipping equipment
  • The shipping company must prioritize safety; you must ask questions regarding their safety measures.
  • Hire a shipping company with the needed experience and expertise for heavy equipment shipping
  • The shipping company should have positive feedback from past clients.
  • They should have strong communication skills
  • Must be able to provide the shipping solution that meets your needs

Preparing Your Dairy Farm Equipment Hauling for Shipping

Preparing your heavy equipment for shipping requires taking the required safeguards. A lack of planning can put your equipment at risk for catastrophic harm. Take the following precautionary measures to ensure the safety and security of your shipment:

  • The equipment should be sanitized and checked for safety.
  • The fuel should be the first thing to go.
  • Make sure there are no loose pieces or tools.
  • Remove the battery pack from the alarm system.
  • Proper packaging strategies should be found in the manufacturer's manual.
  • All exposed parts of the equipment should be covered to protect it from the elements.
  • Make sure there is enough room for the transport firm to fetch the freight safely.

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.
