Shipping A Manure System

Manure System Transport Services

A manure system is a collection of equipment designed for the management of by-products from livestock on a farm.

If you want to transport such a system over long distances, you will need to plan and prepare properly so there is no damage to any part of the system.

Transporting the system yourself isn’t a great idea because there are intricate parts that can be damaged if handled wrongly.

A shipping quote will tell you how much it will cost to ship a manure system. This is because the costs vary widely. For example, shipping rates can be as low as $1.5 per mile and as high as $5 per mile.

Cost Shipping Factors for Manure System

Some factors affect the shipping cost of a manure system. A change in one of these factors can affect the shipping cost. The factors that affect the shipping cost include the cost of diesel at the time of shipping and the shipping method used.

Cost of Fuel

The cost of fuel affects the shipping cost. With an increase in the cost of fuel, there will be an increase in the shipping costs as well.

Fuel is used to power the transport vehicle in which your equipment will be transported. If there has been an increase in the cost of fuel, then it will be more expensive to ship a piece of equipment over the same distance.

For example, an increase in the cost of diesel will mean that it will cost a shipping company more to power its trucks.

The Shipping Method

The method used to transport your equipment will influence the shipping cost. Some shipping methods are more expensive than others because they require more resources to execute.

For example, it is more expensive to ship your manure system in a shipping container than exposed on a truck because of the added cost of the shipping container.

However, these more expensive shipping methods come with advantages that make the extra cost worth it. For example, high-priority shipping will guarantee that you get your manure system as quickly as possible.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

If you have decided to hire a professional, you shouldn’t just hire anyone. There are things to look out for in the company you want to hire, like insurance plans and the company’s reputation.

Insurance is important because the equipment you want to ship is an investment in your company and should be protected. Look for a company that offers insurance for moving and get the details of what is and isn’t covered.

Check out the company’s reputation before putting pen to paper. Find out what former customers think of the company’s services and their overall experience. This will give you an idea of what to expect if you hire the shipping company.


Preparing Your Manure System for Shipping

  • Wash the equipment thoroughly before the shipping day.
  • Take off any personal items like photos and jewelry before 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!
