Shipping a Roping Equipment

Roping Equipment Transport Services

Roping equipment includes everything used in the rodeo sport of roping. It involves things like roping chutes, steer alleys, chute release gates, and roping boxes.

All these things will be difficult to transport without a large truck or trailer. This is why many rodeo organizers outsource transportation of their equipment to shipping companies that have the appropriate equipment to ship it.

This is why you need a company like A-1 Auto Transport, which is experienced in shipping roping equipment. The shipping cost of rodeo equipment can vary from $300 to as high as $5000.

Cost Shipping Factors for Roping Equipment

The cost of shipping roping equipment will be different in each shipping scenario. It all depends on factors like the quality of service and the cost of gasoline at the time of shipping.

The Quality of Service

There are a substantial number of companies that offer heavy equipment shipping services. However, the quality of the service you get might affect what you are charged for shipping.

Shipping quotes can seem very low and attractive, but upon closer examination, you might find that basic services have been omitted.

Usually, the higher the quality of service you get, the more you might be charged for shipping. So, keep this in mind when looking through different shipping quotes.

Cost of Fuel

The price of gasoline and diesel at the time of shipment will directly affect the amount you pay for shipping.

The higher the cost of gasoline and diesel, the higher the shipping rate. In some cases, the change in the price of fuel can double the shipping cost. This is because fuel is used to power the vehicles that transport heavy equipment.

That is something to consider when you examine the shipping quote.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Since hiring a shipping company is established as the best way to transport your equipment over long distances, you have to know what to look for in a good shipping company. The first thing to verify is the license, followed by the availability of insurance.

Before you sign any documents, ensure the company you are hiring is licensed to transport heavy equipment. This will protect you from scammers who will not be licensed. You can verify a shipping license by visiting the United States Department of Transportation.

Insurance is an important part of shipping heavy equipment because it is expensive and difficult to replace. You should hire a company that will take all or part of the liability for your equipment. So, read the insurance policy of the company you want to hire before you sign any document.

Preparing Your Roping Equipment for Shipping

  • Examine your roping equipment and document the state it is in before you ship it.
  • Clean the equipment before the shipping crew takes it away for 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.
