Tractor Plow Shipping
A tractor plow serves a very specific function on a farm. It's designed to dig into the soil and flip it over, allowing you to plant seeds in the land. Unfortunately, this specific function means that you can't simply drive a tractor with a plow attached to it over the road. The plow (and the road) are likely to get damaged.
If you need to transport your plow or other farm equipment to another location, you need a special tractor plow shipping service. A-1 Auto Transport provides this with our heavy machinery transportation services.
A Reputable Tractor Plow Shipping Service
Shipping a tractor plow requires expertise. These are large and delicate pieces of equipment designed to serve specific functions. If your carrier doesn't take the appropriate amount of care when loading your plow, it could be damaged during transit.
A-1 understands that shipping a tractor plow is more complicated than transporting a regular vehicle. Our experts have completed over two million deliveries domestically and abroad, working with all types of vehicles and heavy machinery in the process. You can trust that your plow is in the right hands when you use A-1 Auto Transport.
Why Choose A-1 Auto Transport?
Every shipping company claims that it offers safe and speedy delivery. We do, too! But there's plenty that separates A-1 Auto Transport from the rest of the pack.
We Handle Paperwork
Depending on the size of the plow, it may be classed as an oversized load. If that's the case, we handle all of the paperwork required to legally ship the plow to its location. We'll also specifically plan the shipment so we take routes that are capable of dealing with wide loads. That means you don't have to worry about delays in your shipment caused by poor routing.
We’ve Worked With Many Types of Plows
Our tractor plow shipping technicians have worked with plows made by some of the world's leading manufacturers, including:
- John Deere
- Massey Ferguson
Furthermore, we are experienced in shipping every type of tractor plow. Our logistics experts know how to load and transport chisel plows, mud board plows, disc plows, and ridge plows.

Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to price, distance has the most influence.
The truck will consume more fuel and make the cost rise if the distance is difficult to cover because of badly-built roads. Easy and smooth roads have a huge indirect impact on the price and can drastically reduce it.
On the other side, travelling through congested places necessitates using more fuel, which raises the trip's expense. The final price is also affected by the fuel's market pricing.
Apart from that, getting a precise figure without a quote is impossible because variables like the fuel market price and industry average pricing tend to change.

You don't really need step deck trailers for tractor plows. A flatbed trailer is the best choice to transport a tractor plow, whether you have just the plow moved or attached to a tractor. A plow usually weighs around 1,500 pounds, while a tractor's average weight is 5000 pounds.
This means that even the tractor and plow's packaged weight won't add up to over 7,000 pounds. Usually, a small flatbed trailer holding 20,000 pounds would be enough. Since the tractor plow is only 6 feet wide, its other dimensions also don't cause any issues.
A flatbed trailer is relatively simple to navigate, making it a popular choice among movers. It's easy to secure equipment because it has no edges, so the loaders at the loading dock can easily secure the plough using chains.
It's impossible to provide a precise price because of the many factors a company has to consider; therefore, the best scenario is for you to request a quote.
First, the weather has a bigger impact than anticipated because harsh weather forces the driver to stop, which delays the delivery. Of course, distance also plays a big part and has an impact on how long the trip will take.
The amount of traffic is another important consideration. The delivery time will undoubtedly increase with increased traffic, especially if the delivery route includes major cities.
Since the plow’s dimensions don't make it a wide load, it doesn't cause any delivery delays.
Although someone who works on a farm would be accustomed to it, shipping a tractor plow isn’t something that should be done on your own. Operating something in a workplace versus moving it a long distance is different.
You won't have to worry about your plow getting damaged during transportation because a reputable transport company will be equipped to handle any unforeseen circumstances.
Because of this, it's important to choose a firm carefully and pay attention to its reputation and how long it's been in the business. It's even better if you choose a company that a friend or relative has already employed.
