Shipping an Interstate Freight

Interstate Freight Transport Services

Freight originating in one state and heading to another is known as interstate freight or interstate shipping. During the shipment, the commercial vehicle crosses state lines, and the trucks may go across several states with a consignment. Cargo traveling from the United States to Mexico or Canada is considered interstate freight; in this case, foreign authorities are involved.

It is important to note that these massive machines may weigh very different amounts. Shipping firms are often asked to transport such massive machinery.

The price per mile for transporting heavy equipment may vary from $1.00 to $5.00 depending on the route, truck type, and time required to complete the transportation.

Cost Shipping Factors for Interstate Freight

Costs of interstate freight services are affected by several factors. Firms usually base their final quote on the type of equipment being transported, the distance between the origin and destination, and the item's weight.

Type of Heavy Equipment Being Shipped

Moving large machines is one of several transportation services. Others supply mining equipment, tractors, and agricultural equipment, while others specialize in construction equipment. Keeping in mind the transport expertise of different heavy equipment shipping companies is essential when comparing estimates and prices.

Transportation Distance

Compared to shipping heavy equipment across the country, it is much less expensive to send it locally or to another state. It won't matter if you are just delivering a modest amount of stuff; you'll still have to pay more per mile than you'd think. It might be cheaper to transport heavy equipment over short distances, but the cost per mile is higher.


Among the factors that contribute to the cost of shipping heavy equipment is the weight of the equipment. When shipping heavier and larger heavy machinery, it is often more costly to send lighter and smaller equipment than heavier and smaller equipment.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Numerous heavy equipment transportation companies are available to transport your heavy equipment. Your needs will determine which firm is right for you. There is no doubt that there is one that is perfect for you.

Research shipping companies before choosing one. All of the information you need, including customer evaluations, will be available if you follow all of the procedures correctly. It's beneficial to get other opinions as well.

You should choose a licensed shipping company. Licenses and rules related to transportation are issued by the Department of Transportation in the United States.

Preparing for Interstate Freight Shipping

  • In order to deal with your transportation agency and shipping services effectively, you must not be afraid to ask for assistance.
  • You should also make sure that you are adequately insured for the equipment you possess.
  • Cleanliness and functionality of your heavy equipment are essential. You may need to have a mechanic examine heavy equipment before transferring it.

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.
