How much does it cost to transport heavy equipment?
The cost for heavy equipment transport will depend on the equipment that is being moved. For heavy earthmoving equipment, the price will depend on how heavy it is and distance that needs to be traveled. Sometimes there may be special considerations when heavy equipment is being moved, so it is important to discuss the details with our specialists.
Moving heavy equipment not only requires the proper trucks and trailers, but also heavy equipment permits. Depending on the state, heavy equipment transport could require a permit from multiple agencies. That’s why it’s important to work with a heavy equipment transport company with experience.
Big Rig Trucking Company has years of heavy haul experience and knows how to navigate the permit process for heavy equipment transport, so you don’t have to worry about it.
How do I ship heavy equipment?
When moving your heavy equipment overseas there are a couple of choices. A common choice is the Roll-on / Roll-off or the RO-RO. A Roll-on / Roll-off heavy equipment transportation is a heavy piece of machinery that has wheels, which can be driven on and off ships by loading ramps or causeways with landing gear at either end. Another choice is the flat rack heavy equipment transport. A flat rack is similar to a flatbed truck. Your equipment is loaded onto the flat rack, which is then loaded onto the transportation vessel.
What is considered a heavy haul?
Heavy haul is defined by legal limits. Although each state has different heavy haul limits, in general heavy hauls are anything over 80,000 pounds. Our trucks have the capacity to move heavy equipment up to and including 250 tons. Also if something is 8.6 feet in width, taller than 13.6 feet in height, or longer than 53 feet, it will be called a heavy load.
