How to Ship a Harvester?

This machine drastically cuts down the need for manual labor in the agriculture industry.

The large size of a harvester makes it difficult to transport. It is nearly impossible to ship a harvester or other heavy agricultural equipment anywhere without the help of an experienced transport company. The transporter must have the right tools and haulers as well as the latest shipping technology to successfully transport a harvester from one place to the next no matter the distance.

How a Harvester Is Shipped Nationally and Internationally

Like all heavy equipment, a harvester is often shipped through an open air method whether it is going somewhere else in the country or overseas to another nation. The only difference between the methods is ground methods require a hauler while overseas requires the use of a freight ship. Once the harvester is rolled or lifted onto the flat surface of the trailer or ship, it is secured by professionals. Any details that get overlooked in the process of securing the harvester could be dangerous. The transporter must have harvester shipping experience.

If you wish to keep your harvester safe against the possibility of poor weather and other hazardous outside elements, you may want to consider container shipping. Most transporters with heavy equipment shipping services will have 40ft containers. These containers are usually large enough for a harvester or for other equipment moving needs. Choosing container methods is a little more expensive but it provides the ultimate protection.

It doesn't matter what type of shipping services you choose to use, a licensed transport company will always carry the minimum insurance coverage to provide more protection. If you already have insurance on your harvester, call your agent to see if it is covered during a transport. If not, you may want to add more coverage through the transporter's insurance policy if possible. It's always best to ensure that the full value of your harvester is covered during a domestic or international transport.

★★★★★ 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.
