Preparing to Ship Heavy Equipment

Heavy Equipment Transport | StevensWest.comBefore you ship heavy equipment, you need to make sure you are ready. Here are some steps you should take before you start the shipping process:

Research Your Equipment – Before you ship a piece of heavy machinery, you need to make sure that you know what steps are necessary before you send it on its way. Spend some time reading the equipment manual or contact the manufacturer to learn more about what you need to properly prepare your equipment before shipment.

Ask about Permits – Some heavy machinery requires permits before you ship it. You should be talking to the shipping company ahead of time, making sure that they know everything they need to know about the equipment, such as the size, brand, and weight. This allows them to prepare everything ahead of time before shipments.

Prepare the Area – From pickup to drop off, you should prepare the area ahead of time. This means clearing the space so that your driver can properly put the piece of machinery on the truck and leaving a clear area that gives them the chance to drop it off with ease.
