On Shipping Construction Equipment

Shipping Construction EquipmentWhen most people think of the auto transport industry, they see the big trucks with stacks of cars on them, trundling down the freeway almost haphazardly. Which is completely understandable, considering that that’s how most vehicles nowadays are shipped. But there are a few subsections of the vehicle shipping industry that a lot of people don’t really think about, which is why today we’re going to put a spotlight on a part of the industry that fits that criteria – specifically, how one goes about shipping construction equipment.

We have to start with the caveat that there are lots of different types of construction equipment, ranging from relatively small to absolutely massive, and each is shipped in different ways. They have to be, because there’s no “one size fits all” type carrier unless you’re talking about a flatbed hauler, which are a lot more expensive than standard shipping carriers and only useful for larger freight anyway. But even though there isn’t one type of carrier that can ship everything, when it comes to construction equipment most of it will have to be shipped by a flatbed carrier by default. The term “flatbed” is pretty much a buzzword for lots of different types of flat haulers, including lowboys and removable gooseneck trailers.

Please note that different companies will have different policies in terms of the maximum size they can ship in terms of shipping construction equipment. Tower cranes probably won’t be able to be moved unless they’re disassembled, for instance. Typically, the maximum load that a flatbed hauler can actually move is about 80,000 pounds – anything over that and an “oversize” permit is going to be necessary. All of these are details that you can and should discuss with your transportation representative, as they can give you more information about their policies regarding shipping construction equipment.

If you’re interested in getting a quote to ship a piece of construction equipment, make sure to take a moment and fill out our free online auto transport quote request form. Because construction equipment shipping quotes are not very common, you will likely have to put in “other” for the make and model. If you put “other” you’re going to need to talk to someone over the phone about narrowing down your quote, as they will likely need the dimensions and the weight of the construction equipment you are trying to ship. If you have questions about our services, contact us any time at 800-930-7417 and talk to an agent to learn more.
