Shipping Large Equipment

Shipping heavy equipment can be a difficult task, and it’s essential that you choose a specialized carrier that is familiar and experienced with your hauling needs. Due to the size and weight of heavy equipment, special shipping considerations will likely be required. A shipment of tractors, cranes, forklifts or other large industrial equipment may require a carrier specializing in heavy equipment. FreightCenter can point you in the right direction in selecting a provider that can meet your needs.

Shipping Building Materials

Transporting raw materials for construction demands ingenuity in itself. Since many skyscrapers are built within the framework of an established city, nearby buildings limit the space available for storage and construction. So it’s common for I-beams, for example, to be delivered to worksites at the exact time they’re needed for placement. Such heavy, long, and awkward loads require mass coordination, secure rigging, and the experience offered through dedicated truckload services.

Shipping heavy items of this size will prove to be more challenging, but with the help of FreightCenter, it will almost seem effortless. It’s likely that hauling a load of this size and weight will require using a carrier that specializes in large equipment. Lucky for you, FreightCenter works with hundreds of vetted carriers that can provide you with the perfect shipping solution for your needs, no matter the size!

Some Heavy Items We Commonly Ship

LTL or TL?

Depends. How big are we talking? Any time your freight weighs more than 15,000 pounds, or if you are shipping more than 10 pallets worth of goods, it makes sense to ship truckload. If you’re shipping machinery like an engine, it won’t take up an entire trailer, and you’re better off choosing LTL. If you’re shipping something like 3 commercial lawnmowers, though, you enter the arena where you may want to consider choosing TL. Consult with an agent when getting your free, instant freight quote to determine which option is right for you.

Less-Than-Truckload (LTL)

Refers to shipping an item that is relatively small and will not take up the entirety of the trailer. You pay for the amount of space you take up, not the entire truck.

Truckload (TL)

If you are shipping a large enough load, you may need an entire truck. This option requires a lot of freight to make it a more economical choice than LTL.
