How to Select a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Moving heavy machinery can be challenging, especially when you don’t have your own heavy duty equipment to make the transport possible. What you need is a reliable heavy equipment hauling and rigging service to ensure proper handling of your machinery and the timely delivery of the same to the designated site. When looking for a heavy equipment transport service, your top priorities should be knowing exactly what service you are getting and how much the service would cost. An important rule of thumb to follow is to get everything in writing so you won’t end up being low balled or getting bait-and-switched when the service you originally agreed upon becomes conveniently unavailable at the last minute. Avoiding these kinds of schemes is possible if you are careful about who you deal with. This is why it is important to choose a reliable and credible towing company in the first place. Here are some tips on how to select a heavy equipment shipping company:

  1. Ensure the credibility of the company you are considering. One of the best ways to do this is to look into what their clients (current and previous) are saying or have said about the company. Online reviews can be very instrumental in gauging a service’s credibility and in finding out what their track record is when it comes to client satisfaction.
  2. Ask about their qualifications, licensing, and insurance. Make sure that the company is licensed and insured to operate within your local area or the area you wish to ship your heavy equipment to. Ask about what insurance they have in place should your machinery get damaged during transit or while in their care.
  3. Know the company’s safety rating and ask about the safety measures they have in place to ensure the safety of both your equipment and their own workers. Ask about their rig and equipment as well as other provisions or inclusions within the scope of your contract.
  4. Finally, ask about their rates and compare them with other companies so you’ll know what the reasonable range is for the kind of service that you require.
