Moving construction machinery takes special skill, precision, and safety. This typically falls under heavy haul, which means depending on the types of equipment being hauled, there are varying methods to get the job done right.
In this blog post, we discuss the basics of how to haul construction machinery.
Construction machinery is complex and extremely heavy. Therefore, choosing the right trailer ensures the utmost safety and efficiency. For heavy hauling, there are several types of trailers with differing features to accommodate loads of all sizes. This includes the following:
Since construction machinery is considered overdimensional, there are a few different steps to take with planning, compared to a standard load.
What type of machinery are you hauling and how many vessels? Each will obviously have varying weights and heights that need to be carefully measured for optimized loading.
This will also help you determine the types of packaging or securing materials you’ll need.
You’ll also want to make sure everyone on your team knows what their job is and what the safety protocols are, especially in the loading and unloading zone.
If you’re new to the rigors of hauling construction equipment, you can always turn to a professional to get the job done right. Heavy haul companies have the equipment, certifications, and knowledge to see your shipment through from start to finish.
You gain peace of mind knowing that your oversized load is being handled carefully, so you can focus on running your business. This is one of the best ways to ensure your delivery arrives on time without incurring extra costs.
