How Much Does It Cost to Ship Heavy Equipment?

There are number of factors to consider before the process, it can be difficult to give an accurate estimate on the price of heavy equipment shipping, but on average, it can be expected to pay around $5 per mile for shorter distance shipments and $1.75 per mile for longer distance shipments.

Aside from distance, here are some other factors that can influence the quotes you can expect to receive:

  • Item size

one of the most cost effective factor is size of the shipping equipment. Flatbed hauls are the most used transport and will be efficient for most heavy large items. Rarely case that you require more than a flatbed, special trailers will generally be the solution, which can involve special resolution and will likely increase cost of quote.

  • Pickup and Delivery Locations

If item’s pickup location is far from the center of state then this requires more fuel and time to pick up your equipment, whereas urban and well-populated spots are likely to cheaper as they are less far from the way.

  • Season

Adverse weather conditions can also affect cost in some cases as they can shut off some routes and make shipments more difficult.

Methods of shipping heavy equipment

  • The Lift-on / Lift-off Method

This method is the practice of picking up and unloading containerized cargo over the top of a shipping vessel using cranes or derricks. With Lift-on/Lift-off method, transports usually have onboard cranes for this purpose and can accommodate larger container capacity, allowing for greater cargo shipping.

  • Roll-on / Roll-off

The Roll-on / Roll-off type of shipping entails driving vehicles directly onto a transport and maneuvering them into place, rather than lifting them by crane. Motorized vehicles like cars and tractors drive onto the trailer on their own wheels, while equipment not self-propelled is placed on handling equipment with wheels and rolled on and off the vessel.
