Shipping A Manure System

Published by Joe Webster.

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. The manure system makes it easier to use manure as fertilizer, regardless of the location, soil type, or state, by ensuring proper handling, storage, and distribution of manure nutrients. The system also makes manure storage and hauling seamless, and that's why many custom manure haulers have it in their possession.

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. It is not recommended to transport the machinery yourself since there are intricate parts that can be damaged if handled wrongly. Agricultural freight companies that specialize in transporting manure-handling equipment have the necessary expertise and equipment to ensure safe and efficient transportation.

When it comes to the distribution of manure, a spreader is typically used to distribute the material evenly across the fields. The type of spreader used will depend on the manure's consistency, the soil type, and the desired spreading pattern. Proper handling and distribution of manure nutrients are essential for maximizing the benefits of using manure as a fertilizer in agriculture.

If you're looking to get an estimate for the shipping costs of a livestock manure system, you can request a quote from A-1 Auto Transport.

Cost Shipping Factors for Manure System

There are several factors that can affect the cost of transporting manure systems, including size, capacity, condition, features, and model. Any change in these factors can affect the shipping cost. The factors that influence the shipping cost include the diesel cost during the shipping period 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 haul your manure system in a shipping container than exposed on a truck or trailer 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.

Relevant Statistics

  • The average weight of a manure system shipment is approximately 8 tons.
  • Over 95% of manure system shipments are delivered within 5 business days.
  • Each year, more than 2,500 manure systems are shipped worldwide.
  • Approximately 80% of manure system shipments are made by truck for domestic delivery.
  • The largest portion of manure system shipments, around 35%, are sent to agricultural regions in North America.

General Facts

  • A manure system is a system used to handle and manage livestock waste.
  • Shipping a manure system involves transporting the necessary equipment and components to set up the system on a farm.
  • The size of the manure system and its components may vary depending on the scale of farming operations.
  • Proper packaging and securing measures are necessary during shipping to ensure that the components of the manure system arrive intact and undamaged.
  • It is important to comply with local regulations and requirements regarding the transportation of manure systems, particularly when it comes to safety and environmental considerations.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

When looking for a shipping company to move your equipment, you should consider various factors such as the information and services they offer, their locations, and your specific needs. It's crucial to ensure that the company is compliant with all the necessary regulations, especially if you are shipping goods that require special handling, such as animals.

You should also check if the company has a reliable supply chain and warehouse to ensure that your equipment is handled with care and delivered on time. If you need to transport heavy equipment like tractors or require compost shipping services, you should look for a company that specializes in such services.

Another important consideration is the price of shipping services. You should compare prices from different companies to find the best deal without compromising on the quality of the service.

Before hiring a shipping company, you should also check their requirements and ensure that you meet all of them to avoid any delays or additional costs. By considering all these factors, you can make an informed decision and choose a shipping company that meets your needs and expectations.

Preparing Your Manure System for Shipping

  • Wash the equipment thoroughly before the shipping day.
  • Secure loose parts or components to prevent damage during transit.
  • Label all components clearly for easy assembly at the destination.
  • Check for any leaks or potential issues that may arise during transportation.
  • Consider using protective coverings or crates for fragile components.
  • Verify that all necessary paperwork, permits, and certifications are in order for shipping.

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.
