Side Kit Trucking
When transporting oversized and heavy equipment, side kit trucking is a common preference. Side kits are among the oldest, yet effective trucking forms that exist today. A side kit consists of fiberglass panels, composite sides, or plywood that are usually attached to a flat or drop deck trailer.
Side kits protect your luggage from damage from rain or the sun, and it holds your cargo in place. Some people also refer to side kits as covered wagons because of the removable tent-like tarps. Heavy Equipment Transport is renowned for competently and effectively using side kit trucking to haul very heavy machinery to long distances.
What are the Benefits of Side Kit Trucking?
Apart from providing the option of transporting oversized cargo, side kit trucking is preferred because loading can be made from any direction. Loading and unloading is made easier as, when using side kits, one can use a crane or a grapple. Side kits are usually added to the flat or drop deck trailer's side through panels or poles.
These additions create walls that guarantee maximum protection of the cargo from all sides. Side kits also have a strong tarp. Therefore, whatever material or machinery you are transporting is adequately protected from damage from different weather conditions.
What Types of Load are best suited for Side Kit Trucking?
At Heavy Equipment Transport, we majorly use side kit trucking for crops such as corn or watermelons. Side kit trucking is useful for such crops because they are not likely to get damaged from their weight. Side Kit Trucking is also a preferred option for transporting industrial HVAC and other heavy machinery.
We also employ side fit trucking to effectively and safely transport powdered materials and products, building materials that may be sensitive to moisture, and unusually light loads that may be sensitive to wind. Call Heavy Equipment Transport now! (888) 730-2951
