Tractor and Farm Equipment Transportation
Today we’re going to take a look at a few of the most common reasons for shipping a tractor, and then we’ll discuss getting it done in the best way possible.
Are you looking for the best Tractor Transport Cost? One of the most common questions we get relates to the tractor-hauling transportation price. How much does it actually cost to get this Tractor Transport done? Well, it honestly depends on a few different factors and while there are some things that we can easily predict, it’s not really a ‘one size fits all type of situation.
There are many circumstances that can rather easily change the price, and you will need to discuss them with us. For example, the weather could play a part and cause delays, or you could find that the price is significantly increased based on the distance that needs to be traveled.
Why Hire a Tractor Transport Company
The first and most important thing to remember is that farmers aren’t the only ones who need to ship a tractor. You could, for example, simply be someone who is selling farm equipment and needs a way to safely transport it across the country. It could even be much simpler than that; maybe you are hoping to supply tractors to another field, or maybe you’re moving altogether. The plans, of course, are fairly irrelevant – all you know is that you have a tractor, and you need to get it to a new location.
The ultimate destination could be anywhere! Some prefer to ship their tractors to the next city over, and some will be moving them across the country – in the end, it’s all about getting the job done, and it’s about getting it done as safely as possible.
So, with that being said, how are you going to do it exactly? We have a few suggestions, and most importantly, we have some answers to your most pertinent questions.
Shipping your tractor is, without a doubt, one of the most important things that you might do, and with that being the case, you want to make sure that it is done right. So how do you do that exactly? What needs to be taken into account? In our opinion, the company’s reputation tells the story, so ask yourself these questions:
- How long have they been in business?
- How long is their average trip?
- What is their success rate?
- How many five-star reviews do they have?
We can tick the box for all four of those questions and a quick online search will reveal to you that we have more than our fair share of positive reviews. These aren’t just kind words, they are affirmations that we can get the job done right and keep the customer happy. When it comes to shipping an expensive piece of equipment(Tractor Transport), that’s what really matters.
Shipping a tractor is a difficult endeavor and when you hire a company to get the job done for you, you first want to make sure that they have the experience. Secondly, you want to make sure that they know the route that they are going to take. One of the biggest issues with transporting large pieces of equipment like this is the permits that are required to travel through each state. In addition to that, it is important to choose routes where the tractor is allowed.
For example, most freeways have a weight limit and if you are going to move a large piece of equipment, then you’re going to need to make sure that you are at the proper weight, and if not, make sure that the proper permits have been filed. The weight limit in place is done not only for the sake of the road but also for the safety of other drivers on the road. This leads us to the point that transporting a piece of equipment like(Tractor Transport) is going to require an experienced hauler who knows how to handle large loads. Don’t worry; you’re in good hands with us.
How to transport a tractor
We offer custom transportation solutions tailored to your needs, and we'll make sure to send the correct type of specialty trailer for each pick-up. Most tractors can be shipped on a standard flatbed trailer, but you'll need to meet the size and weight restrictions for every road your tractor travels on throughout its route. In addition to standard flatbed trailers, we can also help you locate a step-deck or lowboy trailer that rides lower to accommodate height restrictions when transporting oversized machinery and equipment. Review your owner's manual to see your manufacturer's shipping recommendations before you schedule tractor transport services, and secure all panels and access hatches on your machinery before your pick-up. If your machinery needs to be disassembled for transport and reassembled on delivery, you'll need to add the cost of labor to your shipping cost estimate.
How much does transporting a tractor cost?
The tractor transporters in our network typically charge between $2 and $3 per mile for their services, but you should only consider that figure an estimate. The bidding process helps you keep your prices low, and your total shipping costs will depend on your shipment size and timing and the options you select. Most farming and industrial operations operate in a limited service area, and there are a lot of great local and regional carriers who are prepared to compete for your business. We also offer nationwide tractor transportation, and you'll often pay a lower cost per mile if you're transporting your equipment from state to state.
How to transport a lawn tractor
There's no substitute for professional tractor transportation, but towing a lawn tractor is easy enough if you have a suitable trailer and tow vehicle. To begin, connect the tongue of the trailer tongue to the hitch ball and secure the safety chains. Lower the loading ramp or gate, and make sure that the top of the gate rests on the ground to facilitate easy loading. Set your truck's parking brake and use chocks or wood blocks underneath the trailer's wheels for an additional layer of safety. Drive the tractor up the ramp and onto the trailer with its center of gravity aligned over the trailer axle. This helps distribute weight evenly for a smoother and safer ride. Stop the tractor and leave it in gear. Set the parking brake and lower the deck all the way down. Make sure that the tractor's hood is secure, and use ratchet straps to secure the tractor and axles. Raise and secure the ramp or gate, and drive slowly. Pull over after the first few miles to check and tighten all straps, and repeat the process each time you stop until you arrive at your destination.
