Shipping A Hopper Bin

Hopper Bin Transport Services

For seed and grain storage, hopper bins are long-lasting V-shaped containers with controlled emptying. A hopper bin offers quick, easy grain conditioning and unloading, but that's just the beginning.

They can weigh anywhere from 1.9 to 3 tons. This type of equipment is often transported by shipping companies.

According to the route, truck type, and time required to deliver hopper bins, their price can range from $1.00 to $5.00 per mile.

Cost Shipping Factors for Hopper Bin

Many factors play a role in determining the cost of hopper bin transportation. The type of equipment being shipped, the distance between the origin and destination, and the weight of the equipment are all factors that affect final estimates.

Type of Heavy Equipment Being Shipped

Several transportation companies specialize in transporting heavy equipment. Construction equipment is a specialization for some companies, while others specialize in providing mining equipment, tractors, and agricultural equipment, and even general equipment. You should keep the transport specialty of the heavy equipment shipping company in mind when comparing costs and quotes from different heavy equipment shipping companies.

Transportation Distance

There is a significant difference in the price of sending headers across the country as opposed to sending them locally or to another state. If you are delivering a product over a short distance, you can expect to pay more for shipping per mile than you might assume. Transporting a hopper bin short distances can result in lower total costs, but the cost per mile can be higher.


There is a significant impact of your hopper bin's weight on the transportation costs that you incur. The cost of shipping heavy and larger hopper bins is often higher than the cost of shipping lighter and smaller hopper bins.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Your header may be sent by one of numerous heavy equipment transportation providers. The ideal one for you is determined by your needs. There is undoubtedly one that will be ideal for you.

Before selecting a shipping firm, always conduct research. If you conduct this search correctly, you will receive all of the information you want, including customer reviews. It is beneficial to learn what other people think about a firm.

If you want to use a shipping firm, be sure it is licensed. The United States Department of Transportation is in charge of transportation licenses and regulations.


Preparing Your Hopper Bin for Shipping

  • Don’t hesitate to ask your transport brokers for any special services you might want to avail yourself.
  • It is also critical to ensure that your equipment is appropriately insured.
  • A hopper bin must be clean and in excellent operating order. Before it can be transported, the hopper bin may need to be examined by a mechanic.

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.
