Transporting Oversized Equipment From The Dealer

After all, having access to the tools, equipment, machinery, and implements that your operation needs are detrimental to your business. When you find the equipment that you need to get the job done, you want to make sure it arrives in one piece and in good condition. Oversized freight transport is a booming industry. With the internet making the world a much smaller place, customers can shop for oversized machinery all across the nation. And because customers are shopping all across the United States, they are using oversized equipment transport companies to get the equipment they are buying to their location.
In order to get your equipment transported, you must know the dimensions of the equipment and the approximate weight of the equipment as well. All rules relating to the weight of the truck and cargo are based on the weight of the axles—law enforcement is based on the weight of the axles. Knowing the weight of the equipment you need to be transported is the first and most crucial step in equipment transportation. Weights and dimensions must be actual values, not estimates.
Oversized equipment transport services are much more expensive than shipping regular vehicles. Oversized loads might be wider, taller, or heavier than the standard load.
