What is the process of shipping heavy equipment?
Your heavy equipment will need to be prepared for shipping in order to ensure its safe arrival at its destination. This will involve securing the equipment and making sure it is packed for transport. You will also need to consider the custom blocking and bracing that may be required.
There are several different types of vehicles that can be used for shipping heavy equipment, including lowboy trucks, flatbed trailers, step deck trailers, and others.
Each option varies in terms of size and capacity. Shipping heavy equipment can be a complicated and expensive process, that’s why we take the time to find the best options for you.
What are the main methods of heavy equipment shipping?
There are four main methods for shipping heavy equipment: containers, LoLo, RoRo, and flat rack.
Container shipping is a very common method for transporting heavy machinery. This method involves loading and unloading the container onto a flatdeck trailer. This is often the case when picking up equipment from a port, or delivering it to a shipping port.
Lowboy Trailer Shipping
This method involves loading the equipment onto a lowboy trailer, which is then towed to the destination. The advantage of this method is that it is less expensive than other methods.
Flatbed Trailer Shipping
This method of shipping is favored for shipping boats, RVs, and other heavy equipment. This method involves loading the equipment onto a flatbed trailer, which can then be towed to the destination. The advantage of this method is that it allows for easy loading and unloading of the equipment.
What are some things to consider when shipping heavy equipment?
When shipping heavy equipment, there are a number of factors to consider in order to ensure a smooth process
First, you will need to decide on the most appropriate transportation option based on the size and type of equipment being shipped. If the equipment needs to be disassembled for transport, make sure you have the necessary tools and instructions.
Support the Equipment with Bracing and Cradles
Blocking and bracing requirements will also need to be considered in order to keep the equipment safe during transit. It is also important to protect against corrosion by taking proper steps ahead of time.
Provide Accurate Shipping Information
Once you have determined the logistics of shipping, it is important to communicate all details accurately to the shipping company. This includes providing the make and model of the equipment, as well as its dimensions and weight.
Inaccurate information can delay shipment or result in additional costs. Photos can be helpful in providing a clear visual reference for the company. If there are any modifications or special requirements for your shipment, be sure to communicate these in advance so that proper arrangements can be made.
What are the risks of shipping heavy equipment?
Shipping heavy equipment can be risky, and it’s important to consider the risks before proceeding. Equipment needs to be shipped in a way that will not cause any damage.
An appropriate service will need to be identified and used during loading and unloading of the equipment. Cargo is often damaged during the loading process due to improper loading. If there is a time constraint, workers may try to speed up the process and use equipment that is not designed for the job. This can lead to accidents. We always work to prevent incidents before they occur by fully identifying all of the resources that will be needed to get your equipment to its final destination, safe and sound.
For example, it might be necessary to hire a forklift of crane service. We will work to have these services in place at the appropriate time to prevent delays and accidents.
Send accurate dimensions and a photo of the equipment, whenever possible
Always send accurate dimensions, including the weight to avoid additional fees and delays. We also request recent photos of the equipment so we can plan accordingly. This will help us provide you with a more accurate quote.
Making sure that your equipment is properly packaged and secured before shipping will also ensure that it arrives on time and in good condition.

- The costs of shipping heavy equipment vary depending on weight, size, shape, destination, and method of transport
- Rapid or urgent shipping increases the cost, sometimes by double or more
- More valuable equipment will be more expensive to ship due to the increased insurance requirements
- To keep costs low, always provide accurate dimensions, shipping addresses, and contact information to prevent delays
- Hiring additional services will increase costs, such as: loading and unloading, additional equipment such as cradles, and permits
What are the challenges of shipping heavy equipment?
Shipping heavy equipment can be a challenge for a number of reasons. The weight and size of the equipment can make it difficult to ship, and it may be more cost-effective to ship the equipment in pieces rather than as a whole.
Additionally, the equipment may require special protection from corrosion or other damage, and it may need to be delivered weeks in advance of when it is needed.
Shipping can also be hazardous, and debris from the shipping process must be removed before the equipment is transported.
Finally, moving heavy equipment can be a hassle, and it often requires specialist freight shippers and equipment.
