Shipping a Tractor

Most oversized utility tractors are shipped atop a flatbed trailer. The equipment is then secured using heavy-duty fasteners, chains, straps, and other shipping gear and technology. In some cases, the farm equipment hauler pulling the trailer is then followed by security cars to assure cleared distance between the driver and other cars on the road at that time. A sign stating “oversize load” may also be on the back of the trailer to issue a further warning.

Shipping a Tractor Internationally

With the widespread use of tractors in the agricultural industry, it is easy to find transport companies that offer international heavy equipment shipping services. As long as they have ships and the proper gear to secure the tractor, it can make its way overseas safely. Depending on the size and weight of the tractor, you may have several shipping options.

In most cases, your tractor will be shipped via the RO/RO or LO/LO method. These are both open air shipping services for international transports. RO/RO means that the tractor must drive onto the ship where it is secured. LO/LO is best for inoperable tractors. It requires a hydraulic lift to assist the tractor onto the ship by lifting it.

Another form of international delivery includes shipping the tractor inside a container. Of course, the tractor would have to meet the size and weight stipulations to use this method. However, if this method is an option for you, the tractor will need very specific preparation. This includes draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery along with removing loose parts. Make sure you prepare the tractor right or it may get denied container shipping when the day comes.

To lawfully ship your tractor internationally, it must meet the requirements of the nation's import policy. This is difficult in most cases. The laws can be strict and hard to follow. Fortunately, your transport professionals will assist you with this process. They'll help you gather the right documents and meet all requirements to gain Customs approval.

Shipping farm equipment across country

How Much Will It Cost To Ship A Tractor?

Wondering how much it will cost to ship your tractor? Tractor shipping costs varies quite a bit based on your location, the type of farming equipment you're shipping, and a number of other factors. Here are some of the things that usually influence how much it costs to transport farm equipment safely.

Size & dimensions – Smaller tractors are easier to maneuver, haul and ship. In contrast, larger tractors will be more bulky and difficult to ship, leading to higher overall shipping rates. This is particularly true if your tractor is large or bulky enough to require transportation as an oversize load.

Weight – The weight of your shipping load has a large effect on the cost of shipping your tractor. Whether you're shipping a single large tractor or multiple smaller vehicles, you'll pay more for shipping depending on how heavy your load is.

Open-air vs. container – Open-air shipping is the cheapest and simplest way to move your tractor(s). In this method of shipping, your tractor will simply be driven or loaded onto a flatbed trailer behind a semi truck. Then, it will be secured in place, and hauled to its destination. Your tractor will be exposed to the elements. Container shipping is also an option for most trucks. Your tractor(s) will be loaded into a standard, 40-foot multimodal shipping container. This farm tractor transport option is typically more expensive, but has the advantage of protecting your equipment from the elements.

Total shipping distance – Shipping your tractor across the country will, as you may imagine, be more expensive than shipping it down the street or within the same state. Yet, long-distance transportation of your container results in a lower cost per mile than local delivery. Shipping your tractor will be less expensive overall, but short haul delivery is more expensive per mile.

Delivery deadlines – If you need rush delivery for a tractor to ensure you get your equipment quickly, you'll have to pay for the extra fees and expenses associated with rush hauling. To save money, it's best to plan ahead and ensure that you won't need last-minute tractor hauling and shipping services.

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.
