How to Ship Backhoes

As a construction company, it is important to get your backhoe loader from site to site as quickly as possible. This is why many of them will use professional transport services to get their heavy equipment wherever it needs to go next.

The Best and Cheapest Way to Ship a Backhoe

When trying to get your backhoe from one site to the next, open air transport methods are your best option. When an open air method is used, your backhoe is either secured to the top of a trailer or flatbed ship, depending if it is traveling by ground or water.

The transport company will have licensed and trained professionals look after your construction equipment, making sure it is tightly fastened and secured for its transport.

Although open air shipping methods lack in providing the ultimate protection against outside elements like bad weather, it is deemed as a perfectly safe shipping method. Construction equipment is very durable and often too large to be shipped by enclosed transport methods. Not to mention, open air services are usually much cheaper than any other form of transport.

Open Air Shipping Methods

When you purchase open air shipping services for your backhoe, the transport company is required to carry the minimum amount of insurance coverage. This ensures the safety of your backhoe during its travels with the shipping company. If any damages are noticed after a transport, the situation will be assessed by the transport company before they go ahead with filing a claim. When shipping a piece of equipment of such high value, you’ll want to make sure that the transporter offers full protection. If not, consult with your own insurance company or ask the transporter if they offer additional insurance coverage at a cost.

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.
