Get Your Equipment's Dimensions

Our transportation professionals first measure the dimensions of the machinery for transport. This enables us to know the necessary equipment and trailers/trucks to use to move it.

Attain the Required Permits

Special permits are needed to ship equipment from one state to another. At Heavy Equipment Transport, we’ll obtain all the required documents in good time to avoid any unnecessary delays.

Plan the Best Routes to Use

Shipping pieces of machinery without knowing the best routes to use can be a tragedy. Therefore, Heavy Equipment Transport identifies the best paths to use in both states to avoid undesirable situations. While doing so, we steer clear of those with harsh weather or roadblocks since they can prevent us from meeting your deadline, which is the last thing we want.

Give You a Quote

Our professionals will give you a quote early in advance so that you can plan your budget as soon as possible. Don’t worry about a thing – our rates are pretty affordable, but they vary. Some of the things we put into account when deciding what to charge you are as follows:

  • The type of equipment you want us to move, and its dimensions
  • The pieces of equipment you wish to transport
  • If there is any additional equipment attached to your piece of machinery
  • Whether we’ll have to hire road assistance or not
  • The distance you want us to cover to deliver your equipment
  • The heavy machinery’s condition – is it running or not?

After planning the entire shipping journey and finalizing all the payments, it’s time for Heavy Equipment to begin the delivery process. Our competent drivers are ready to keep in touch with you so you know exactly when to expect us. This helps you to stay prepared and organize how to receive your valuable piece of machinery.
