How uShip Works
This is a first for me, that is to find an EASY solution to moving large items from England to Europe. Hassle-free, cheap, and prompt. I would highly recommend uShip to anyone wanting this sort of service.

Very well-designed site and service: good value and a surprisingly hassle-free - even enjoyable - way to get someone else to move a large lump of metal several hundred miles.

Preparing for Heavy Haulage

Heavy haulage takes special preparation because of the size and weight of the items being hauled. Industrial and farm equipment such as bulldozers, tractors, or cranes will require a specialised heavy equipment mover. Heavy haulage companies will require accurate dimensions and weight to determine the type of trailer required and obtain any necessary permits. These dimensions can often be found in the owner’s manual or on www.ritchiespecs.com.



There are a few options for heavy equipment shipping; it may be towed, shipped on a flatbed or require a special trailer. A specialised shipping company will be able to recommend an option and take some of the guesswork out of what your equipment requires for shipping. International shipping will require more time and special permits, which a broker may help you obtain.


You will need to prepare your heavy equipment for transport before the day of the move. By properly preparing your equipment for the shipping conditions it may encounter, you can avoid unnecessary damage. Also, oversized or overweight equipment may require additional preparations to ensure it can be safely transported. Ask your shipping company about any special requirements you may need to fulfill before their arrival.


Although all carriers are required to have insurance, you may wish to purchase additional coverage. Understanding the insurance coverage offered and what you are protected from can help you determine if you need additional insurance and how to file a claim should you need to do so.
