Rock Picker Transport Services

As its name implies, the rock picker is a versatile piece of equipment used for picking rocks. It can remove rocks on the surface as well as from beneath the soil level. The picker's solid grill tines are designed to be lowered into the soil and lift partially submerged rocks Moving heavy-duty machinery like the rock picker can be very challenging if you don't own your transport system. The cost of shipping a rock picker would be affected by the type of transport system used, the weight, and also the moving company's services you intend to engage.

A-1 Auto Transport is a moving company that is always available to help you ship any type of heavy equipment from tractors, cranes, rock pickers, and so on.

Cost Shipping Factors for Rock Picker Transport

To ship your rock picker equipment from one location to another, there are certain factors you might need to consider to get an estimated price. Some of these factors include:

Size and weight of the equipment

This is one of the many factors which can influence the cost of shipping your equipment. The bigger the equipment, the higher the price because it would have to be disassembled before transportation.


The destination where the equipment would be picked up and delivered is another factor to consider to determine the cost of shipping. The farther the distance, the more money that would be needed to pay.

The moving company

Depending on the moving company you intend to engage in their services, the cost of shipping would also vary.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

  • Check for the license of operations owned by the company to ensure that they are genuine.

  • Ask questions about their safety measures which would guide your equipment during the shipping process
  • Confirm the company's insurance policy and how to make use of it should your equipment get damaged while in transit
  • Check the moving company's credibility by reading through the online reviews of their previous clients.

Preparing Your Rock Picker 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.
