Easy Construction Equipment Hauling: Get competing freight bids, based on exact machine dimensions, with VeriTread
Construction equipment is constantly on the move. It has to be transported, whether from a manufacturer, dealer, rental company, auction company, contractor or just from job to job.
And it doesn’t come in a neat shipping container. It can require specialized equipment to load and transport, special permits, a pilot car and/or adherence to port protocols, all at a price tag that can be an unpleasant surprise. Not to mention that each state has its transport rule quirks and that the machine may have been modified in ways that change transport dimensions and weight, none of which are on a standard spec sheet.
Finally, who do you trust to efficiently, safely and legally transport a costly machine?
As temperatures are warming with the arrival of Spring, it’s a good time to review Thaw/Frost Laws. These seasonal restrictions on traffic weight limits and speed vary by state. They are in place to protect roadways and still allow transport providers to maximize their loads in these northern areas. The roads that are sensitive to weakening during the spring thaw are the areas protected by the seasonal weight restrictions.
OOIDA’s Truckers for Troops campaign kicked off on Monday, Veterans Day. The campaign is a salute to active duty and veteran members of the U.S. military.
The annual campaign, which runs through Friday, Nov. 15, generates funds in order to send care packages to service personnel in combat zones.
In case you missed it, we had a great webinar with our fantastic partners, IronPlanet. We also had an incredible turnout. However, if you weren’t able to join us (we get it…life happens…), you’re in luck. You can revisit the webinar at any time on our VeriTread YouTube Channel.
