What Methods Of Equipment Transport Are Available?

May 27th 2014 at 4:14 AM

Whether you need to move heavy machinery to a new job site or you need to bring some in for repairs, equipment transport can quickly become a bit of a hassle. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to move your machinery from one location to another – all you have to do is critically assess your needs and choose the option that is most appropriate!

Air

This is probably the least common way to move equipment, as many pieces are simply too large to fit into the cargo area. If you need to move something from side of the country to another (or to another country altogether), however, this is going to be the fastest way to do it. To save costs, you should drop the machinery off at the airport and have it picked up from the outdoor baggage area at the other end.

Land

This is probably the most common method of equipment transport, as all you need to do is load it onto the back of a truck and you’re off. This is only suitable if you are moving machinery within the same country and if you don’t mind it taking a few days. When loading the machines, make sure that they are properly tied down to prevent them becoming damaged or even falling off.

Sea

This is a way to move equipment that is still used every now and then, as it provides a means of moving very large machines and also allows you to travel between countries. The machinery is sometimes loaded into large shipping containers to provide it with a little extra protection during transit, otherwise it is loaded onto the boat and secured. Transporting in this fashion will also take some time to arrive.

Whilst it is possible to arrange transport yourself, it is often recommended that you utilise the services of a shipping or freight company. They will have connections within the above industries, ensuring that you get a great price and that your equipment is moved when you want it to be. These companies will also know how to properly secure your machinery.

The next time you are in need of equipment transport, make sure you think about what you need to move, where you need to move it to and when you need it to arrive. This will provide you with a pretty sound basis how the transport method that is best suited to your needs. Make sure that you have considered all of your options before coming to a final one.
