Our transportation equipment
We will determine the best mode of transportation based on the specifications of your Manitou equipment. Our drivers are specifically trained on the various modes of transportation available and the different ways we have for heavy hauling.
Some of the equipment you have include standard flatbeds, removable goosenecks (RGNs), lowboy trailers for high height loads, step deck trailers, hotshot trailers, and other specialized trailers that have been modified to carry unique loads.
As a Manitou hauler, we will handle the logistics of how your equipment gets from its pick up location to its destination point. We will plan the most efficient route and handle the different permits and insurance requirements required in some states.

Preparing your equipment for transport
Before transporting your Manitou, we will notify you of the trailer on which it will ride. The ground clearance of the various trailers we’ve just mentioned are different.
For oversized loads height is usually one of the biggest problems. We need to handle because flat beds are usually about five feet of the ground. This is a key Factor to take into consideration because most roads have a clearance of around 13 feet. So a flatbed trailer typically gives you a clearance around 8 to eight and a half feet total clearance in height.
Step deck trailers give you more clearance than flatbed trailers because they have a lower middle section. This gives you an additional clearance of around one-and-a-half to two feet.
Lowboy trailers give you additional one-and-a-half feet in clearance than the step deck trailer. So of the three, they give you the most clearance. To make sure that your load is within the legal height permissible on the chosen routes. It is important to ensure that all telescopic hydraulic booms are retracted properly to give you an optimum length and height.
Depending on which states the Manitou Hauler will travel we will advise you on additional legal requirements required on the road. In some States, heavy equipment is not allowed to be shipped with some attachments still attached.
So we will advise you if there any attachments like the bucket on your equipment needs to be moved and the reason why it is imperative to do so.
We’ll also advise you on whether for the route chosen your load will be considered a wide load. This mostly depends on the model of your equipment. The wide load designation is based on whether the equipment is over-height, overweight or overweight or over length.
Equipment with a wide load categorization cost more to ship than those without.
