Compliance with Regulations and Permits for Heavy Equiptment Transport
Transporting heavy equipment often involves complying with various regulations and obtaining necessary permits for oversized and overweight loads. Number 1 Auto Transport has a deep understanding of these regulations, saving you the time and effort of navigating through complex legal requirements.
Number 1 Auto Transport's Heavy Equipment Transport with Lowboy Carriers
The most efficient way to transport your heavy equipment is on a lowboy transport carrier. The lowboy is an extended, flat platform with specialized equipment that secures massive amounts of gross tonnage. Generally, lowboys are called upon when heavy equipment transportation is needed. Driving a dump truck or bulldozer a long way is highly inefficient – and environmentally unfriendly.
Lowboy transport allows maximum efficiency and saves time. It’s not uncommon to see a lowboy moving crane parts and oversized construction materials. These platforms distribute weight most effectively, allowing drivers the flexibility to safely transport such a heavy load.
How Long Does It Take To Transport Heavy Equipment?
Depending on the car’s location, most pickup windows are 24-72 hours from when the vehicle is ready to be picked up. This window could take up to 5 days in remote areas.
