The Route Between California and Texas
The route from California and Texas is roughly 1,400 miles from center to center via the I-40 route. Since both Texas and California are large in size, the number of miles will differ greatly depending on where within the states your pick up and drop off locations are. From California your equipment will travel west through Arizona and New Mexico and then south into Texas. The trip from California to Texas will take about two days. The price will be determined by the number of miles the equipment is being shipped and the size and weight of the unit.

Does shipping cost less than freight?
The term freight refers to commercial purposes. Shipping goods can be done for commercial or personal reasons. It is generally cheaper to ship goods in bulk than in smaller quantities, which makes shipping more expensive than freight.
When it comes to hauling freight, what is the most expensive?
Here, I’m referring to heavy equipment like cranes, tractors, and excavators. The item is not commonly shipped, but it shouldn’t be excluded from expensive packages. A single freight shipment can weigh over 100,000 pounds and put you in the red by over $45,000.
How should heavy equipment be lifted?
To lift a load, bend your hips and knees, keep it close to your body, and straighten your legs. Heavy objects should never be lifted above shoulder level. Lifting or holding heavy objects should not be done in a twisting or turning motion
Heavy Equipment Transport & Hauling Jobs from California to Texas
1981 Kenworth 900 from Northern Californian going to Austin, Texas. The equipment was over 12 tall, so we dispatched an RGN trailer to pick it up. The customer also had some parts to go with the Kenworth. We strapped down the miscellaneous part to the trailer and the total transit time was five days.
