A-1 Auto Transport Releases List of Tips for Transporting Heavy Equipment

The New Blog on the A-1 Auto Transport Website Advises People How to Prepare their Equipment and Find Good Shippers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / A-1 Auto Transport is pleased to announce that they have just released a list of tips that will help people who need to transport heavy equipment.

To read the new blog, which is titled “Tips for Heavy Equipment Transport – How to Prepare Your Equipment and Find Good Shippers,” in its entirety, please visit https://www.a1autotransport.com/how-to-prepare-your-heavy-equipment-and-find-good-shippers/.

As a company spokesperson noted, while A-1 Auto Transport is happy to help clients who need help shipping heavy equipment like cranes, forklifts and combines, there is some prep work that must be done ahead of time.

This inspired A-1 Auto Transport to write and post the new blog, which offers helpful tips that are designed to get heavy equipment ready for transport, while also avoiding common and costly mistakes.

For example, heavy equipment owners should check the manufacturer’s guidelines to determine how the equipment can be safely shipped. In most cases, this information can be found in the owner’s manual.

“The guidelines may contain everything from how to secure the equipment to a trailer to what parts need to be removed and shipped separately,” the blog notes, adding that owners should then make a thorough inspection of the heavy equipment.

“One of the things to look for is the condition of the securement points. Almost all heavy equipment has dedicated securement points. They should be strong and uncompromised in any way to keep the vehicle stable and safe during transport.”

If the heavy equipment has parts that are vulnerable to weather, they should be secured prior to shipping.

As the blog notes, because most heavy equipment is shipped in open trailers, levers, doors, windows and other elements should be wrapped and/or zip-tied shut ahead of time to keep them safe and secure.
