Ripper Machine Hauling Transport Services

A ripper machine is an important farm equipment that is helpful in field preparation. Due to its size, shape, weight, and market value, shipping a ripper machine from one location to another is not uncommon. Our clients transport ripper machines across states regularly.

However, when it comes to shipping your ripper machine or any other oversize load, the only way to do it is with the right company. Shipping your ripper machine efficiently is our priority at A1 Auto Transport. In addition to our professional team that will handle your transport, we also offer affordable pricing so you won't have to worry about the cost to ship your ripper machine.

Cost Shipping Factors for Ripper Machine

Ripper machines are generally large and heavy machines. Unlike other vehicles like motorcycles and cars, shipping these types of equipment would cost significantly higher and will require heavy-duty hauling equipment. Hence, weight is one factor that significantly affects shipping costs for your equipment.

In addition to the equipment weight, there are also required licenses, permits, and documentation that would be required for interstate transport. Obtaining these documents and permits, as well as insurance and fuel expenses are other major factors that would affect the cost of shipping your ripper machine.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

When assessing prospective heavy equipment shipping companies, there are a few things to look out for that will help you select the right company to ship your equipment.

Your ripper machine is a large piece of equipment and as such, would require an equally large and efficient trailer that can carry your equipment across long distances. It is important that equipment and machinery used in shipping, hauling, or transporting clients' equipment or vehicles must be in perfect working condition and must have undergone adequate maintenance. Due to the ripper machine size, you may need to ensure a tractor is also readily available for trailer hauling.

Ensure that the shipping company is registered and certified to ship oversize loads. You can do this by requesting the shipping company's DOT and MC numbers. This will help you verify the company you're entrusting your equipment shipping to.

You can further verify the shipping company by searching online for customer reviews or recommendations. Yelp is a great platform to do this.

Preparing Your Ripper Machine for Shipping

Here's a short list of things to do to get your ripper machine ready for shipping.

Use detergent and water to wash and clean the ripper machine.

Carry out due maintenance on your ripper machine to ensure it's in a good working condition before transporting it.

If there are flaws, damages, discoloration, or blemishes on your equipment before transport, take note of them. Do the same after transport.

Make sure tires don't have any punctures.

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.
