Frequently Asked Questions
You should follow the standard procedures used to secure most heavy equipment. Ensure the engine is off and the fuel tank is empty or, at the very most , one-fourth fuel.
Also, don't leave any wires hanging freely. This can lead to many safety hazards and burn professionals handling your equipment. Finally , ensure there aren't any other fluids in your street sweeper.
If there are mechanical problems with your sweeper, alert the driver.
Most shipping companies will attempt to put the safety of your equipment first, so if it is optional, avoid placing a sense of urgency on those handling the transportation.
First and foremost, shipping companies will have experienced drivers and loaders and advertise it to ensure you know your equipment is in safe hands.
After giving them all the details, the company will plan the safest possible routes before choosing the one that will get your equipment to you the fastest. If you're inexperienced, you can rely on your shipping company to ensure everything is handled upfront and you are getting everything that may cause legal problems later on.
If a state declines your permit application, you don't need to worry because it's primarily due to insufficient information and a deficient plan. However , your company will revise your application and help you obtain the permit faster than you can on your own. The company will also show you the costs of shipments and custom requirements when shipping internationally.
Despite Street Sweepers generally weighing 20000 pounds, which is less than half the legal weight limit of 46000, street sweepers are considered an oversized load and require special permits for transportation.
This is primarily because of their height. Their width is about 8 feet, just below the legal width limit; however, their height averages 9-10 feet. The Legal limit of height in the transportation of heavy equipment is also 8.5 feet.
But you can relax because your shipping company will help you through the process of obtaining a legal permit. This is typical customer service, as paperwork is a long and tiring process, and the support of a legal company can speed it up. Also, quite a lot of customers and first-time transporters, and even after careful consideration, getting a permit without experience is challenging.
A street sweeper is a piece of heavy equipment and is generally transported using a flatbed trailer. A flatbed is extremely common in transporting heavy machinery because it is made for transporters' convenience and hence avoids edges or other things that might cause a hindrance.
However, many companies will prefer to use lowboys or hotshot trailers for larger street sweepers, especially those that exceed the legal height limit by a few feet.
A lowboy is especially useful in this situation because it sits low to the ground and can carry heavy equipment up to 12 feet, an ability rarely seen in other trailers.
