Grapple Truck Transport Services

Purchasing a new grapple truck can be expensive especially for small scale workers or companies, which is why renting a grapple truck for a specific task is a viable option. A common challenge with this option, however, is grapple truck shipping.

It is one thing to have a grapple truck available and paid for, however, transporting it to or from your job site is another ball game entirely. Even when you purchase a new grapple a truck, you are still faced with the grapple truck shipping challenge.

Outsourcing the transportation of your grapple truck is always a good idea especially when you rely on a reputable heavy equipment shipping company to do it. With a good shipping company, you will be informed of the steps involved, requirements as well as the costs to ship your grapple truck.

Cost Shipping Factors for Grapple Truck

A grapple truck is a special type of truck that has a grapple attached to its frame. This unique piece of equipment is used in gathering refuse or debris and sometimes used for loading as well. As such, the grapple truck is a large piece of equipment and would require appropriately large equipment for shipping it.

Asides the size and weight of the equipment, there are still a number of other factors that would influence the overall costs of shipping a grapple truck. These factors include:

  1. Obtaining required permits and documentation for interstate transportation of large equipment
  2. Equipment insurance during transport
  3. Distance between origin and destination as well as time spent during transport
  4. Fuel or gas expenses

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

As a client looking for a reliable heavy equipment shipping company to work with in shipping your grapple truck to your preferred destination, there are a few tips you should be aware of to avoid fraudulent shipping companies. These tips include:

  1. A prospective heavy equipment shipping company should have appropriate and well-functioning equipment or machinery for transport that are duly maintained and efficient. Your grapple truck would spend a greater part of its shipping process in the hands of the shipping company, you want to make sure your precious equipment will be handled properly.
  2. Make sure that the heavy equipment shipping company is duly registered and licensed. Moving companies are generally licensed by a regulating body in its jurisdiction. Request for the shipping company's DOT and MC numbers. This will help you to verify the company you're entrusting your equipment shipping to.
  3. You can further verify the shipping company by searching online for customer reviews or recommendations. Yelp is a great platform to do this.

Preparing Your Grapple Truck for Shipping

Below is a general guide to help you prepare your grapple truck right before you send it off for shipping:

  1. Carry out a full inspection on your grapple truck that assesses the hydraulic system and the boom for possible leaks. Also look out for missing or non-functioning parts, possible damage from previous usage, etc.
  2. Carry out due maintenance on your ripper machine to ensure its in as good working condition before transporting it.
  3. Wash and clean your grapple truck with appropriate cleaning agent, water and a clean cloth
  4. If there are flaws, damages, discoloration or blemishes on your equipment before transport, take note of them. Do same after transport.
  5. Make sure the tires on your grapple truck don't have any punctures.

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.
