Selecting The Right Transport Provider

When it comes to selecting a construction equipment transport company, there are many carriers to choose from, but not all of them will be able to deal with all aspects of delivery, regulations, and shipping. Businesses need to choose a transport provider that suits their needs and looks out for their interest, which can be difficult when they are unfamiliar with the options. Mid to smaller size equipment generally falls under legal loads with standard size trucks and open deck trailers, but slight nuisances in overall load height, width, length, and weight can quickly cause your load to need special permits or escorts. This is where an experienced and reputable provider can make all the difference in your freight being delivered legally, on time, without compromising safety and incurring fines/detainment.

Staying Legal & Staying Safe

Heavy machinery is bulky and difficult to move. To make the highway safe for everyone, there are regulations in place that dictate how heavy equipment may be transported. If your load exceeds these specifications, a permit is usually required but don’t worry; if you hire a professional equipment shipping company they will take care of all legal needs associated with weight and size limitations on transportation so you needn't concern yourself about any possible ramifications.

Moving Equipment Fast & Efficiently

Moving large machinery can be tricky, especially when it comes to transporting equipment. Of course, how long that takes will depend on the distance being traveled and the weight of the equipment itself. But if you're looking for a way to ensure your delivery is prompt regardless of where you are in relation to its destination then an experienced shipping company should do the trick!  They'll also help give you estimates on how quickly they think their services will get there depending both upon location as well as what type of support they have at loading and drop-off locations.  Should something go wrong or a breakdown occurs, your transport provider's communication skills are key in keeping you informed of the changing landscape.  Great transport companies, not only have great records of delivery but also take responsibility for any problems that arise and do their best to remedy problems transparently and expeditiously.  For this reason, VeriTread recommends shippers take all factors into account when choosing a provider and not based their decision on price alone.
