Rotary Hoes Hauling Services

Rotary hoes are tilling tools that are versatile and can be used for many things, including decreasing soil crusting, improving crop emergence, and improving weed control.

Rotary hoes aren't small tools. They can be categorized under heavy equipment and their blades make them complicated to ship. This is why many farm owners and companies outsource the shipping of this equipment.

The cost of shipping a rotary hoe varies from about $1.5 to as high as $4 per mile. This might not include added services, taxes, or insurance.

Cost Shipping Factors for Rotary Hoes

There are factors that affect the shipping cost of rotary hoes, and because of these factors, the overall cost of shipping can vary greatly from scenario to scenario. These factors include the size of the equipment and the insurance.

The Size of the Equipment

The size of the equipment, which means the weight and volume of the equipment, will affect the shipping cost.

The larger the equipment, the higher the shipping cost. This also applies to rotary hoes, with certain hoes barely reaching 2 feet in width while others can be many times longer.

Keep in mind that the weight of the rotary hoe is considered so, in a few cases, the smaller hoe might be more expensive due to density.


Insurance is a vital part of shipping heavy equipment and it affects the final shipping cost.

There are basic insurance packages that provide little to no cover for the equipment to be transported. While these cost less, they also do less. Your shipping cost will be higher if you want better coverage for your rotary hoe.

Keep in mind that the value of the equipment you are shipping will also affect what you pay for insurance and, by extension, what you pay for shipping.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

It is clear that hiring a professional shipping company is best for your shipping needs, but what should you look out for as you search for a shipping company? Well, you can start by checking reviews, and the company's reach.

There are quite a number of shipping companies, but not all provide satisfactory services. The best way to figure out which company will give you satisfactory services is by checking third-party review sites to see what past customers think of a company.

The destination you are shipping your rotary hoe to is non-negotiable. This means that you cannot be convinced to ship it to another location. The implication is that you must find a shipping company that ships heavy equipment to the destination you have in mind.

Preparing Your Rotary Hoes for Shipping

  • All documents related to your rotary hoe should be intact and handy before shipping it.
  • Check all the mechanical parts of the equipment and repair any faults that you might notice.

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.
