  3. The company should have good customer care service. In this way, it will be easy to lay your complaints if you feel dissatisfied.
  4. The company should have all the necessary equipment needed for shipping. Also, the company should have good safety measures in place. You can ensure that a company has good safety measures by checking out its safety rating.

Preparing Your Planter for Shipping

Before shipping, you should ensure that your planter is made ready. To prepare your planter for shipping, the following should be done

  1. Remove fluids such as fuel and engine oils
  2. Refer to the manual if you intend on disassembling the parts of the planter
  3. Remove batteries and unplug all battery-powered parts to avoid accidents
  4. Make sure that all permits and paperwork are available. This ensures smooth shipping, especially when at borders.
  5. Tighten all loose parts of the planter before shipping
  6. Remove excess soil from the planter if you just used it on a field
  7. Rustproof the planter to avoid damage if the planter will be exposed to different weather conditions during shipping. In the absence of rustproofing, cover all parts that are at risk of damage f om being exposed to the weather.

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.
