Shipping Crawler Loaders

It takes the help of professionals to ship something as large and heavy as a crawler loader. Crawler loaders are a large, heavy duty tractor with the ability of a wheel loader. The design of this heavy equipment allows it to travel across rough terrain as it uses its hydraulic arm to excavate. Trying to transport these large pieces of construction equipment from site to site is usually much too difficult without the right shipping equipment and tools.

How to Ship Crawler Loaders

Matter of fact, the slow speed of the crawler loader would cause too much time constraint if driven to the next site. It is best to have a hauler transport the heavy equipment for you.

How Most Crawl Loaders Are Shipped

In most cases, shipping services are purchased to get the crawler loader from construction site to construction site which only requires a short distance of travel. In other cases, the crawler loader is being sold or distributed by the manufacturer to another location, meaning the distance of travel will vary. There are different ways to transport a crawler loader based on the distance it must travel to reach its destination.

For short distances or ground transport, open air methods are typically recommended. Shipping your crawler loader through this method means that it will be secured to the top of an open trailer. This trailer is attached to a freight truck which will haul it to its destination. When the crawler loader is first put on top of the trailer either by rolling onto it or being lifted on to it, it is secured by highly trained, licensed professionals. They’ll take all precautions and use all the latest shipping technologies and tools.

For overseas transports, your crawler loader is lifted or driven on top of a flatbed ship. As with ground transport, the equipment is secured to the top of the ship. For international deliveries, all foreign laws must be met and proof of paid taxes is needed. Your transport company professionals will help you with this process of approval through Customs.
