The price of moving heavy equipment tends to vary from company to company. There are many different factors that can affect how much it costs to transport equipment, such as the weight of the equipment, the distance it needs to be moved, and the type of transportation. In this article, we’ll discuss ways to reduce the overall cost of your equipment move.

Weight

One factor that you need to keep in mind is the weight of the machinery. The weight of the equipment will greatly influence the price. The weight is measured in tonnage, which is basically the amount of weight that a vehicle can carry. The cost of moving heavy equipment tends to be influenced by several factors, from the delivery distance, to the kind of transportation, and finally, the size of the equipment. When you have the exact measurements, think carefully about your different heavy equipment transport options.

Choose a Professional

You may also want to use a professional company to transport your machinery. Before choosing a company, ask how long they’ve been in business and inquire about their process and insurance policy. Professional companies tend to charge a bit more than non-professional companies, but they have more experience handling all types of heavy equipment transportation. You’ll want to ensure that the company you choose is licensed to transport your equipment, as well, to protect it against accidents on the way.

There are some companies that specialize in heavy equipment transportation. For example, North American Heavy Haul owns equipment that is designed specifically for moving and transporting heavy machinery. They offer services ranging from flatbed trailers to enclosed semi-trailer trucks. To make sure that your equipment travels in a safe manner, North American Heavy Haul offers free insurance for their trailers and most of their equipment. You can also save money if you choose to use them instead of another company because they provide round the clock service.

Equipment Protection

It’s important that you protect your machinery, even when you’re transporting it on a flatbed trailer. Even if your equipment is only 5 feet long, if it has dangerous components such as cutting blades or a rotating blade, it’s extremely dangerous for the equipment, as well as for anyone else, to be in the trailer. You should contact a local heavy equipment hauler company to make sure that you’re not transporting the wrong type of equipment and to claim compensation if anything happens to it while it’s being transported. In the case of an accident, you may need to have it towed away or repaired, so contacting a company to haul your damaged equipment is extremely beneficial.
