Shipping a Rodeo Equipment

Rodeo Equipment Shipping Services

Rodeo equipment includes everything that is used in the famous sport of riding broncos, wrestling steers, and roping calves. The equipment includes cattle prods, bull riding ropes, chaps, boot ties, chutes, and many others.

When organizing a rodeo event, the amount of gear and equipment needed to make it a success is a lot. DIY projects such as this will require a large truck or trailer. The best thing to do is outsource shipping.

The shipping cost of rodeo equipment can vary greatly from as little as a dollar per mile to five dollars per mile.

Cost Shipping Factors for Rodeo Equipment

Costs of rodeo equipment are affected by many things, including the number of items you need to ship and the time of year you are shipping.

Number of Items to be Shipped

If your equipment is broken down into smaller parts, the number of these parts will affect the overall cost of shipping.

In general, the greater the number of things you are shipping, the higher the overall cost. For example, shipping only a chute will cost less than shipping three chutes, ropes, and cattle prods.

While the number of items is important, the weight of these items will also be considered when calculating the shipping cost.

Time of the Year

The time of the year you intend to ship your rodeo equipment will affect the shipping cost because shipping rates fluctuate all year round.

Traditionally, the rodeo season occurs between spring and fall. This means that the demand for shipping companies that transport rodeo equipment will be in high demand. This high demand will increase the shipping costs.

So, depending on the time of the year, you will pay more for shipping. You can plan ahead to reduce the cost of shipping rodeo equipment.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

It is common practice to outsource the shipping of heavy equipment because of the complications that come with making it a DIY project. However, choosing the right heavy equipment shipping company is important.

When searching for the right shipping company, always search for a company that is experienced in transporting the equipment you want to ship. This will reduce the chances of anything going wrong during the shipping process. For example, hire a company that is experienced in shipping rodeo equipment.

You might require added services like loading and storage. Look into hiring a company that provides these services. If, for example, you want to ship a couple of 90o alley corners, you will need a company that will load it so you don’t struggle to do that yourself.

Preparing Your Rodeo Equipment for Shipping

  • All rodeo equipment should be washed properly with a detergent, rinsed with clean water, and dried before shipping.
  • Check all bolts and knots in the equipment you want to ship and fasten them before shipping.

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.
