Best Practices for Shipping Cranes

Tips, Tricks, and Things You Should Know.

Tower cranes are large, heavy pieces of equipment that need to be moved very carefully. They can only move the crane itself on a self-contained "taxi" model and cannot transport it's boom extensions or counterweights which means they will have to call for help with trucks and trailers in order to do so. But before you start enlisting haulers there is one more thing you'll need: an oversize load permit if your tower crane exceeds state height restrictions (or wide loads), because these permits allow oversized vehicles like semis access through areas normally reserved exclusively for cars. These permits usually take about 10 days after being applied for but some states make them available immediately while others may require an application fee as well--so plan ahead!

VeriTread provides a list of qualified transport companies with expertise in shipping cranes and other heavy equipment for those who are looking to save time and energy. The process is streamlined when using this network, but it's always important to consider the following factors before booking your hauler.

- Consider where you'll need the crane delivered once it arrives at its destination - How big or small does this make that shipment? Does any weight matter? What about size limitations on certain roads or bridges? Make sure all these details have been considered beforehand so there aren't any surprises later down the line!
