What to Look for in Companies that Ship Forklifts
With so many options at your fingertips and hundreds of potential companies willing to ship a forklift, how do you know who to choose? First, we recommend that you make sure they are licensed and insured. This will protect your asset in the unlikely event of an accident.
Second, you will want to make sure the company you are working with has fantastic reviews. Sure, there may be people with cheaper prices but if they have one or two-star reviews, then it is for a good reason. People usually do not go out of their way to write a long poor review for no reason.
Third, make sure that you are getting competitive rates. All 5-star companies usually offer great pricing and service. Both are critical to having flawless transportation of your forklift.
Fourth, be wary of hidden fees! We have none, zero, zilch. It is important that you are not baited in with a low price only to have a hidden fee pop up. The same applies to upfront deposits. If you want to compare forklift quotes, let us do that for you so you don’t get any hidden fees or required upfront deposits.
Lastly, ensure that the quotes you are receiving are from A+ DOT carriers. The last thing you want to do is try to save a hundred dollars by working with a DOT carrier with a less than a favorable report card.
Forklift Shipping Options
You have a few options when you ship a forklift. The most economical method would be the open-air method. This is when your forklift would be put on top of a trailer which would expose it to the elements such as dirt, debris, wind, rain, snow, etc.
Should you be shipping a brand new forklift, you will likely want to utilize container shipping. This is when the forklift would be enclosed to protect against the aforementioned conditions. Give us a call so we can consult with you if this is an option as sizing does impact availability. Keep in mind, shipping in this fashion will certainly cost more than the open-air method.
There is a downside to shipping with the container method. Typically, you must drain all fluids out of the Forklift. This is because if there are any leaks it does not ruin or destroy the trailer.
At We Will Transport It, we leave the option to you. Our job is to inform you of the pros and cons. Our goal is to always treat you like our first customer to give you that great customer service which everyone truly enjoys.
