Heavy Equipment Transport & Hauling Jobs from Illinois to Florida
Customer called in and needed a container and John Deere tractor moved from an Auction from South Illinois to the port in Jacksonville. It took us awhile to find a carrier with the proper documentation to take the load to the port. After, a week we dispatched out a landoll trailer. The carrier took four days to deliver the container and John deere. Anytime you need something hauled to the port, you will need the release form and a driver with a Twic card .
