Fuel Truck Transport Services

A fuel truck is a type of motor vehicle that is used to transport and deliver fuel, which can be liquids or gases. A fuel truck can also be called a tanker truck (tank truck) or a gas truck. Similar to railroad tank cars, the largest of these vehicles transport liquid cargo. Several versions are available due to the wide range of liquids that may be transferred.

Due to the wide variety of gasoline trucks available, it is not possible to quantify their standard weight. To move fuel trucks, many customers turn to transport companies for their expertise.

The cost of shipping a fuel truck will range from $1.00 per mile to $5.00 per mile depending on the distance, the type of vehicle you will be shipping, and the time period of the shipment.

Cost Shipping Factors for Fuel Truck

Fuel truck transportation is determined by a number of factors. Several factors such as the transportation distance, weight, size, and dimensions of the equipment are considered in the final calculation.

Transportation Distance

Fuel trucks are significantly more expensive to ship across national borders than across town or to another state. Shipping is more expensive per mile for small distances, contrary to popular belief. Fuel truck hauling is cheaper over short distances, but the cost per mile is higher.


Fuel truck weight is one of the biggest factors affecting how much transportation costs for your fuel truck. Larger fuel trucks are generally more expensive to export than smaller, lighter trucks that contain less fuel.

Size and Dimensions

In addition to costing more to ship, a larger gasoline truck is also more difficult to handle throughout the shipping process because of its larger dimensions. Transporting gasoline trucks on trailers is usually less expensive if they are smaller and fit alongside many other fuel tanks.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

You can choose from a variety of heavy equipment shipping companies for transporting your gasoline truck. Choosing the right one is the key. It is possible to identify the ideal shipping company that meets all of your requirements, of course.

In order to do business with a licensed shipping company, you must first ensure that it is licensed. Vehicle transportation businesses are regulated and licensed by the United States Department of Transportation.

Continue your research of a shipping firm if you plan on using their services. You may get all the information you need including reviews from prior customers to carry this out correctly. In this way you can gauge the general opinion of the public concerning the company you're considering joining.

Preparing Your Fuel Truck for Shipping

  • Ensure excellent battery health by disconnecting the battery before starting.
  • Ensure your gasoline truck is properly maintained and clean before you export it. If necessary, have the technician examine it first.

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.
