How to Ship an Air Drill

The awkward shape, heavyweight, and large size of the air drill used in spreading seeds and fertilizer on the farm make it very difficult and risky to transport. Only licensed professionals in the transport industry with the right farm equipment shipping facilities and a lot of training should handle these types of deliveries. Luckily, with the high demand for agricultural equipment, it isn't hard to find a farmers transportation services company you can trust to pickup, ship, and deliver your drill to its destination safely

Relevant Statistics

  • The average weight of an air drill for shipping purposes is 32.7 kg.
  • Approximately 92% of air drills shipped internationally are done by sea.
  • Air drills can be safely transported in custom-designed packaging, reducing damage rates to just 0.5%.
  • The estimated cost of shipping an air drill domestically is $85, while international shipping costs around $250.
  • A staggering 99.9% of air drills are delivered on time when using reliable shipping carriers.

General Facts

  • An air drill is a tool used for drilling holes in various materials using compressed air.
  • When shipping an air drill, it is important to properly package it to prevent damage during transportation.
  • Air drills are typically shipped in sturdy boxes with appropriate cushioning materials to protect them from impact.
  • It is recommended to use a reputable shipping carrier when shipping an air drill to ensure it arrives safely and on time.
  • Before shipping, it is necessary to remove any loose or detachable parts of the air drill and secure them separately to avoid damage or loss during transit.

The Process of Shipping an Air Drill and the Transport Options Available

In most cases, open air methods are used to ship air drills and air seeders. Domestic and international transports both offer open air methods. Ground transportation includes the use of a large flatbed trailer or a farm tractor among other transport gear and technology while shipping overseas requires the use of a flatbed ship.

Both are similar when it comes to the way the air drill is secured. However, ground transports for an air drill may require further measures to protect those also driving on the road as it's en route.

If you prefer to have more protection for your air drill as it is shipped through a transport company, ask the transporter if they offer container services. Depending on the sizes or dimensions (length and width) of containers they use, you can load your air drill into one, protecting it further from outside elements as it makes its way to its new home. This form of shipping may cost more but it assures the safety of your farming equipment. If you use an open-air transport, part of the needs will be to get a pilot vehicle to go ahead of the haul to ensure there are no obstacles on the path.

All transport companies and carriers are required to offer a minimum amount of insurance coverage to their customers. Ask your transporter about their insurance policy. Note that the entire value of your air drill should be covered by insurance. If not, ask if you can purchase more insurance coverage or call your insurance agent to see if your own insurance on the air drill still stands when it's out for delivery. Shipping of an air drill outside of the United States will require customs paperwork and tracking till it gets to the foreign address.

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.
