How to Ship Boom Lifts

Shipping boom lifts is often necessary. Due to their large size and heavy weight, trying to transport a boom lift using improper or insufficient means is dangerous and usually impossible.

Although the designs of boom lifts vary, some heavier and bulkier than others, open air transport methods are usually preferable.

Open air transport methods lack to provide coverage from bad weather but with the durability of the equipment, it is unlikely it will suffer any harm. When an open air shipping method is used to transport the heavy equipment, depending on where it’s traveling an open framed trailer and hauler, or flatbed ship may be used.

No matter the type of hauler used to transport your boom lift, licensed transport professionals will use the latest shipping technologies and tools to assure its safety during the delivery process. They’ll see that is properly and tightly fastened to the hauler before it makes its way to its new home, even if it’s to travel a short distance to make it to its next site.

Insurance Coverage During Transport

About Insurance Coverage during Transport

Whenever shipping services are purchased through a professional transport company, ask about their insurance coverage. All transport companies are required to provide the minimal amount of insurance during a transport. Nonetheless, when it comes to shipping valuable construction equipment, it is better to have coverage up to the full value of the boom lift. This ensures that any repairs or replacements are covered should an accident happen during its time with the transport company.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

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.
