Tips for Transporting Heavy Equipment
Based in Perth, we are one of Australia’s most trusted heavy transport specialists! Moving a heavy haulage load can take some specific care and preparing your equipment for transport takes specialist knowledge. We’ve created some tips for transporting heavy equipment below!
Firstly, preparing your equipment for transport will involve finding a qualified transporter in Perth. Our company is Australian owned and operated since 1999. We have a reputable team that knows how to prepare your equipment for transport which involves strapping down the load and making sure it’s secure. Newer companies can sometimes offer cheaper heavy haulage, but we are industry experts who can overcome any obstacle. If there are special requirements you need to help prepare your equipment for transport, then let us know! We are happy to adapt and do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Our next tip for transporting heavy equipment is communication! We know you’ve heard that before, but without open and honest communication between you and us, we won’t be able to exceed your expectations (and we love doing that!). During the initial consultation, you must tell us the load capacities you require. The timing and licenses we need depend on the quantity of your load. Likewise, let us know where you want your load delivered so we can check the route and plan accordingly. Different load capacities can require a permit for transporting abnormal loads. So, we want to make sure we are fully prepared and doing everything by the book!
We also need to know dimensional regulations for your load as soon as possible. This isn’t just so we can get a permit for transporting abnormal loads but is also so we can check the route. Our number one priority is the safe and legal transportation of heavy cargo and construction equipment in Perth. To do that, we need the dimensional regulations of your load ASAP.
Lastly, we advise you to make any needed arrangements for pickup and drop-off. Of course, we are happy to help to facilitate the safe and legal transportation of heavy cargo and construction equipment in Perth or Australia. But if it’s easier for you, make sure that you have someone reliable and qualified at the drop-off location. If someone in your team needs a permit for transporting abnormal loads, we can direct you to the right place. Or if there is not enough space at your workplace for the load, we can help you find an alternative location.
