Shipping a Windrower

Windrower Transport Services

A windrower is one farm machinery whose usefulness cannot be undermined. During grain harvest season, having a windrower will make a lot of difference in how much time you can save while harvesting. Shipping a windrower or similar farm equipment will require the service of experts who have had years of experience. Shipping heavy equipment can be tricky and dangerous. Lack of expertise on the part of the shipping company can lead to serious damage to the equipment you are shipping. The cost to ship a windrower will be dependent on numerous factors.

Transport speeds and maximum performance

Cost Shipping Factors for Windrower

The factors that will impact shipping rates for a windrower are

1. How much the windrower you're shipping weighs

2. The cost of fuel at the time of shipping and fuel efficiency of the hauler

3. The time of year and the weather condition when the shipment is being shipped

4. The shipping distance

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Getting a reliable and reputable heavy equipment shipping company will require some degree of important knowledge. You will have to look carefully into the company for the following qualities

1. Licence and Insurance

The business must have a license and should have an insurance policy in place. A license is an evidence that a business is legitimate. With insurance, you'll be shielded against catastrophic damages in the event of an accident.

2. Online Presence

The business should have a website. Viewing customer reviews will be simple if there is an online presence. Positive evaluations may indicate that the business can be trusted.

3. Customer Support

The business needs to offer good customer support. If you are unhappy, it will be simple to voice your grievances in this way.

4. Safety Policy

The business must possess all necessary shipping equipment. Additionally, the business must have effective safety protocols in place when shipping heavy machinery. Checking a company's safety rating can help you make sure it has effective safety procedures.

Preparing Your Windrower for Shipping

Before shipping your windrower, there are some important preparations you should make. Good preparation will ensure that your windrower arrives at the supposed destination on time and without damage.

1. If you intend to take the planter apart, consult the manual before doing so. Without consulting the manual, you might make some terrible mistakes that will cost a lot of money to repair.

2. Remove fluids like fuel and engine oils.

3. To prevent accidents, remove all batteries and plug off any devices that use batteries.

4. Before shipping, tighten all loose windrower components.

5. Verify that all necessary documents and permits are on hand. This guarantees efficient transportation, particularly when crossing borders.

6. Rustproof the windrower. This helps to prevent damage if it will be exposed to various weather conditions during transportation. Cover all components that could get damaged by exposure to the weather if there is no rustproofing.

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.
