Forage Harvester Transport Services

Forage harvesters, or silage harvesters, are agricultural equipment that harvests forage plants to produce silage.

Because of the wide variety of forage harvesters, it is not possible to quantify their weight. A shipping firm is often a popular choice for customers who wish to transport forage plants.

Depending on the route, the type of vehicle, and the length of time it takes to ship the cargo, shipping forage harvesters can cost between $1.00 and $5.00 per mile.

Cost Shipping Factors for Forage Harvester

There are several elements that contribute to the cost of forage harvester transportation. The final calculation takes into account factors such as how quickly you need your shipment delivered, the weight of the equipment being carried, and the kind of heavy equipment being conveyed.

Transportation Speed

Shipping heavy equipment will vary in price depending on how quickly you need it shipped. If you need it faster, prepare to pay more than the market rate. It is likely that you will be charged the regular fee, or even less if you wait. To ensure that your package arrives as scheduled, the firm will have to use more resources and exert more effort.


Transport costs are greatly impacted by the weight of your forage harvester. Forage harvesters that are heavier and bigger typically cost more to export than those that are lighter and smaller.

Type of Heavy Equipment Being Shipped

Heavy equipment transportation is an area in which many transportation companies specialize. There are some businesses that specialize in delivering only construction equipment, while others specialize in delivering mining equipment, tractors and agricultural equipment, and even general equipment. Make sure to keep in mind the transport specialty of the heavy equipment shipping firm when looking for and comparing rates from various heavy equipment shipping companies.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Several heavy equipment shipping companies are available to transport your farm vehicle. Choosing the right one depends on your needs. Naturally, there is a way to identify the right shipping business that can meet your needs.

To begin with, ensure that the shipping company you are considering working with is licensed. Vehicle transportation is regulated and licensed by the US Department of Transportation.

You should constantly look up and investigate your preferred shipping business. When done correctly, this search will reveal all you need to know, including reviews from previous clients. This will offer you a good notion of what others think about the firm you wish to work for.


Preparing Your Forage Harvester for Shipping

  • Ensure excellent battery health by disconnecting the battery prior to starting.
  • Depending on the goods you are moving, your transport brokers may need to provide you with specific care and hauling equipment. Don't be afraid to ask if they provide any unique services.
  • Forage harvesters must be clean and in proper working order before being transported. If required, take it to a mechanic first.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

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.
