Shipping Boom Lifts

Published by Joe Webster.

Boom lift transport services - Ship with truck or RGN (gooseneck) trailer or step deck trailer or flatbed trailer - items of different dimensions

How to Ship Boom Lifts

Shipping boom lifts is often necessary. Due to their shape, large size (length, width, and height), and heavy weight, trying to transport boom lifts 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. However, this might require the use of pilot cars or escort vehicles to create access for the equipment on the road.

Open air transport methods lack 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. However, it is important to engage the services of companies with experienced drivers, haulers, carriers, and standard trailers for your heavy machinery shipping needs.

No matter the type of hauler or driver used to transport your boom lift or any other oversize load, licensed transport professionals will use the latest shipping technologies and tools to ensure its safety during the shipping process and delivery. They'll see that it is properly moved up the ramp 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 construction site or job site.

  • They are commonly used in ports, shipyards, and logistics centers to load and unload cargo from ships or trucks.
  • Shipping boom lifts can be operated both manually and remotely, depending on the model and requirements.
  • Safety is a top priority when using shipping boom lifts, with operators required to undergo training and follow strict guidelines to prevent accidents during lifting operations.

About Insurance Coverage during Transport

Whenever shipping services are purchased through a professional transport company, ask about their insurance coverage. Boom lift transport companies are required to provide a 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 or damage occur during its time with the transport company before it gets to the destination.

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.
