Is heavy hauling defined by how much weight it carries?
Loads exceeding the legal limit on most roads are considered heavy loads. Heavy loads are generally defined as anything that exceeds 8.6 feet in width, 13.6 feet in height, 53 feet in length, or exceeds 80,000 pounds of gross weight.
How much does it cost to haul the most expensive freight?
The equipment I’m referring to here includes cranes, tractors, excavators, and other heavy machinery. This is not a common item to ship, but it is certainly not to be excluded from pricey packages. One of these freight shipments can weigh over 100,000 pounds and cost you over $40,000.
How do tow truckers get their jobs done?
Known as tow truckers, tow truck drivers and operators provide vehicle-related repair and hauling services to non-commercial and commercial vehicle drivers, the police, municipalities, and even other tow truckers
