How Much Will It Cost To Ship Farm Equipment?

Wondering how much you’ll pay to ship your farm equipment? Here are a few of the factors that usually have the biggest impact on the cost of farm equipment shipping and hauling.

  • Type of equipment – Some types of equipment, like tractors and mowers, are simpler to transport compared to bulkier machinery like combine harvesters, which often must be partially disassembled for transportation. 
  • Dimensions and size – In addition to the type of equipment, the overall size and dimensions of a particular piece of farm equipment have a major impact on the cost of shipping. 
  • Weight – Heavier loads cost more to ship than lightweight loads. If you’re shipping multiple pieces of equipment, we’ll help you optimize the cost of shipping by maximizing the weight of your load for each shipment, and minimizing the total number of trucks required to haul your farm equipment.
  • Container vs. open-air – Open-air shipping is the most cost-effective method of shipping. Your farm equipment will be driven onto a flatbed trailer, or hauled on with a crane or hoist. Then, it will be secured to the trailer and driven to its destination. This is the cheapest way to ship your equipment, but it does leave it exposed to the elements. Container-based shipping uses a standard 40-foot long container. It’s more appropriate for smaller pieces of equipment that can fit in the container, or large pieces of equipment that have been partially disassembled. It’s more expensive, but protects your farm equipment from the elements.
  • Delivery deadline – If your farm equipment hauling and shipping project is time-sensitive and requires rush delivery, you’ll pay more compared to a slower method of shipping. Planning your logistics ahead of time to avoid rush delivery will save you quite a bit in fees.
  • Total distance shipped – Long-distance shipping costs less per mile than short-distance shipping, but you’ll still pay a higher overall cost if you’re shipping a piece of farm equipment across the country, compared to a local or in-state shipping project.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
