Shipping Options for Heavy Loads
Hauling your shipment using a flatbed is flatbed hauling. It is the commonest way of transporting heavy equipment over long distances. While most heavy hauls can suffice with a simple flatbed, you can choose flatbeds from a wide variety of sizes and dimensions depending on your shipment. Considered ideal for no-fuss loading and unloading, flatbeds can support shipments weighing up to 21,000Kg. Please crosscheck whether the loading truck can take the weight of your shipment and if they require tools during loading and unloading before pickup.
If you need heavy equipment delivery over a short distance, towing is the best way for transport. You must check and prepare your heavy machines for safe towing according to technical requirements before handing over the shipment during pickup. Don’t worry if your shipment is odd-sized. As expert towing service providers have scores of trucks and trailers, you will easily find the right size of trailer to tow your heavy equipment.
What if your shipment is oversized? What you need is a trailer designed to transport your large load. The two types of trailers for loading and unloading bulky machines are double drop and step deck. Most importantly, if your heavy cargo demands special equipment, there are high chances it will require special permits during transit too. Proactively inquire with your heavy haul transporter if special licenses and letters will be provided.
