Shipping A Manure Spreader

Manure Spreader Transport Services

Manure spreaders, commonly called Muck Spreaders, are a group of heavy equipment used to spread the by-products of livestock on the farm as fertilizer.

Transporting a manure spreader around the farm isn’t as complicated as transporting it long-distance. This is why many farmers need professional help.

If you decide to transport your manure spreader yourself, you might run into problems and even damage the equipment. Heavy equipment can be expensive, so it needs to be protected.

The cost of shipping a manure spreader varies widely and can range from $1.5 to $4 per mile. To get an accurate amount for your manure spreader, contact A-1 Auto Transport for a shipping quote.

Cost Shipping Factors for Manure Spreader

There is wide variation in the shipping cost of manure spreaders and that is because of the various factors that affect the cost of shipping heavy equipment. Some of these factors include the distance to the destination and the equipment size.

Distance to the Destination

The distance is a major factor that influences the shipping cost of a manure spreader. A farther distance will require more resources, and more resources will result in higher shipping quotes.

Manure spreaders may be shipped for $790 over a distance of 452 miles, but may be shipped for $4700 over a distance of 2700 miles.

Keep in mind that the shipping rate decreases as the distance to the destination increases. Therefore, you may have to pay as much as $5 per mile for distances under 200 miles and as little as $1 per mile for distances over 2000 miles.

The Size of the Equipment

This is a primary factor that is considered by the moving company when submitting a shipping quote. The bigger or heavier the equipment, the higher the shipping rate.

This is because the bigger the equipment you are shipping is, the less the space to transport other vehicles on the same truck. There is heavy equipment that occupies the entire truck bed, and this will result in higher charges.

The equipment’s size can double the shipping rate to the same destination. For example, if you were to pay $2 per mile for shipping a manure spreader, you might pay as much as $5 if it was much larger.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Your company needs professional help moving its manure spreader. The things to look for in the company you intend to hire include experience and license.

Experience is important because, without it, you might be handing your equipment over to a company that will damage it out of error. Find out how many years of operation the company you are hiring has.

The company you want to hire should be licensed to ship heavy equipment. This will protect you from scammers who are never licensed. Hiring a licensed company also protects you if there is a breach of contract.

Preparing Your Manure Spreader for Shipping

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
