About Open Air Shipping Methods for Heavy Equipment

There are different types of open air transport methods usually the one best for your asphalt paver will depend greatly on the distance of the journey from point of origin to final destination. Another factor in the open-air method of transport used is whether or not the paver is operational. Once the transport company knows more details about your paver, they'll have more ability to help you decide on the best method of open air transport. However, if the asphalt paver is in need of ground transport, it'll typically be secured to an open framed trailer (maybe a lowboy or RGN) which is then hauled by a freight truck. If you are shipping overseas, expect the paver to be secured to a flatbed ship for its travels. When a paver is non operational it means it might require the use of equipment like a crane, ramp, etc for loading and unloading. There are certain things you may have to do for the preparation of your machine for shipping. That includes the removal of pieces of personal items and getting rid of dirt and debris in and out of the paver.

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.
