Which Vehicles are the Most Difficult to Ship?

Carrier 7In the car shipping world, there are quite a few different vehicles that are difficult for auto transporters to move from A to B effectively. Generally, the more difficult a shipment is, the more money it’s going to cost you – shippers don’t transport hard-to-move items for the same price as a regular automobile, after all. But more than that, hard-to-ship vehicles are hard to ship for a reason. Be it their size, their weight, or a combination of the two, there are always going to be things out there that auto transportation companies have a hard time moving. Here’s a list of some of the most difficult.

1.  Construction Equipment
You’d be amazed at how difficult some pieces of construction equipment are for an auto transportation company to move. Some of them, like bulldozers, are just too big to fit on a standard carrier. It’s not surprising, really; regular auto transport trucks are built to haul cars, and small trucks, and sport utility vehicles and minivans and all the vehicles that people drive down the road…and not the vehicles that they build the roads with. This is a common problem that people looking to ship larger or heavier vehicles run into – their vehicles are just too big. Either too tall, too wide, too long or too heavy, there are few pieces of construction equipment that will actually fit snugly on the back of an auto transport truck. You’ll likely need a flatbed auto transport truck to handle those things.

2. Other Commercial Haulers
Believe it or not, a flatbed auto transport truck can’t haul another flatbed auto transport truck, no matter how much you want to see it. It’s a question of sizes – you can’t fit one cardboard box into another cardboard box of the same dimensions, because they’re the same dimensions. That’s…we really can’t think of a way to simplify that, you know? We’ve had customers call up asking if we can get them a quote to ship massive trucks complete with trailers, and our main question is “with what?” You can’t ship a commercial car hauling truck with another commercial car hauling truck, end of story. While they may make trucks that can handle other commercial haulers, like how they have boats that can ship boats, no auto transport company will be able to move them.

3. Motorhomes, Travel Trailers, et al
First of all, these are probably the easiest of everything on this list to ship, because there are actual companies dedicated to hauling these types of things around. Motorhomes and travel trailers are some of the largest of recreational vehicles, and they won’t be a cakewalk to transport; expenses can get pretty high when you’re looking to transport travel trailers and motor homes, namely because of the weight and the size. Travel trailers are generally more expensive to haul because they can’t move under their own power, so loading and unloading them can be difficult. However, compared to moving construction equipment, it’s not hard for companies that do it regularly.
