Shipping Trenchers

Published by Joe Webster.

Shipping Trench Diggers and Skid Steer Loaders (skid steer attachments) - Products series and items by dealer selection

How to Ship Trenchers

Trenchers are necessary equipment used in infrastructural projects to dig earth trenches at a working depth for piping and laying cables. Trenching can be done to dig through dirt, different types of rock, or frozen ground. There might be a need to move a trencher and its attachment from one job site to the other thus requiring professional hauling services.

Adequate Preparation Is Required

Aside from hiring a reliable and experienced licensed transporter to deliver your trench digger, you can assure its safety by preparing it accordingly. All transport companies will carry slightly different preparation requirements but most of them are based on your decision to have the trencher shipped.

Standard Preparation Requirements for Heavy Equipment Shipping

  • If the heavy equipment is to be packaged for its transport, refer to the owner's manual for proper packaging techniques and materials. If you don't own the manual, contact the manufacturer or check their website.
  • Disconnect any batteries or alarm systems
  • Empty any fluids
  • Secure all loose parts
  • Make lots of room for the transport company to come retrieve the heavy equipment
  • Have all the required permits ready or make sure the transporter has them ready in time
  • Cover any parts of the equipment that you don't want exposed to outside elements if it is being shipped by means of open air services

Make Preparations for the Shippers

When all of the preparation requirements for shipping trenchers are fulfilled, you can expect a much safer delivery process. Not only does fulfilling the prep work lessen the risks for your piece of heavy machinery, but also for the driver and other professionals tending to its transport. We can use a flatbed or lowboy trailer to ship your machine depending on the size.

Relevant Statistics

  • The global market for shipping trenchers is estimated to be worth $2.7 billion by 2024.
  • Over 75% of shipping companies utilize trenchers for efficient cargo handling.
  • The average lifespan of a shipping trencher is approximately 10 years before replacement.
  • Trenchers reduce loading time by 35%, resulting in significant cost savings for shipping companies.
  • Trenchers have been shown to reduce cargo damage rates by up to 20%, improving overall shipping efficiency.

General Facts

  • Shipping trenchers are specialized machines used for digging trenches and laying underground pipes or cables.
  • These trenchers are designed to be transported via various modes of transportation, including trucks, trailers, and shipping containers.
  • They come in different sizes and configurations to accommodate different types of projects and ground conditions.
  • Most shipping trenchers are equipped with advanced features such as GPS navigation systems and remote control operation for precision and efficiency.
  • Maintenance and regular servicing of shipping trenchers are important to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Shipping Insurance

For insurance purposes, preparation is also important. If you fail to properly prepare the machinery for its transport, the insurance company may deny a claim if one is made. The insurance coverage carried by the transporter is required to at least meet the minimal requirements by law. For longer distances, try to purchase additional insurance coverage through the transporter or call your insurance agent to see if your own policy covers the value of the trencher while it is in the hands of the transport professionals.

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.
