Prepping your valuable agricultural machinery is one of the only responsibilities you'll have during the process of shipping.
- If your agricultural equipment needs to be packaged for its delivery, package it according to its manual. If you no longer own the manual, check the manufacturer's website or contact them for more information.
- Clean any debris and dirt off the farming equipment before the transport.
- Before you haul farm equipment, take photographs of their current conditions.
- Release any fluids and disconnect the battery for certain heavy agricultural machinery transport methods. The equipment transport services company will specify.
- Remove or secure any loose parts.
- Contact your insurance company to see if it is still covered under the insurance policy during the time of transport. Although, by law, all agricultural equipment and tractor transport services are required to carry a minimum amount of insurance protection.
- Cover and protect any parts that shouldn't have exposure to outdoor elements.
- Make sure that the agricultural machinery transport company has the right documentation and permits ready.
- Make sure you have plenty of room for the farm machinery to get picked up by the transporter's hauler.
