Wide Load Shipping Transports All Types of Cranes, Big or Small

Wide Load Shipping transports cranes from every manufacturer. We transport all models of crawler cranes, floating cranes, rough terrain cranes, hammerhead cranes, stacker cranes, telescopic cranes, mobile cranes, tower cranes, gantry cranes, truck cranes, and more. Below are the uses of each crane. 

  • Crawler Cranes 

Crawler Cranes are used for lifting heavy loads around construction sites. These heavy-duty workhorses are assembled at the job site and can lift upto 2500 tonnes.

  • Floating Cranes

Floating Cranes specialized in lifting heavy loads. They’re used in open waters and ports for loading, lightening, transshipment, and discharging. 

  • Rough Terrain Cranes

Rough Terrain Cranes lift loads in off-road and rugged terrain conditions. They’re able to maneuver through and over challenging terrains when carrying a load.

  • Hammerhead Cranes

Hammerhead Cranes are the most commonly used around the world. That’s because they allow you to rack, which means moving the trolly inwards or outward along the job without changing the level. 

  • Stacker Cranes

Stacker Cranes are used in commercial and industrial material handling projects. However, they’re mainly used in storage facilities and warehouses to move materials, equipment, and goods. 

  • Telescopic Cranes

Telescopic Cranes are used for maneuvering and transporting objects from one location to another. They’re day-to-day cranes, especially in shipping ports. 

  • Mobile Cranes

Mobile Cranes lift and move materials on sites. As a result, they’re one of the most helpful equipment in construction and heavy industrial projects. 

  • Tower Cranes 

Tower Cranes are used to construct tall structures such as skyscrapers around the city. Therefore, they must have a vertical mast and an overstretched jib.

  • Gantry Cranes

Gantry Cranes are used in construction sites, manufacturing facilities, scrap yards, shipyards, steel mills, and more. They make lifting and transportation of loads easy. 

Our Crane Shipping Services are Fully Insured And Safe

Wide Load Shipping understands your crane is valuable, and if anything happened to it, you’d experience significant losses. Therefore, we fully insure every crane we transport and make you a holder of the insurance cover. That means if it’s not safely delivered, you can immediately contact the insurance company to claim total compensation. Before our team loads any crane on a trailer, they inspect it and fill out a BOL form. That form is used at the delivery location to confirm if the crane is safely delivered. Confirm the details filled out at the pick-up location are correct before signing the BOL form. After that, the crane is carefully loaded on the trailer, and all the attachments are lowered.  Our team uses chains and straps to secure it for transport. Rigger men are present to guide the crane operator during the loading and unloading. To have a smooth journey, the weight of a crane must be well-balanced on the trailer to avoid any instability. 

Crane Shipping 101: Shipping Permits and Trailers Used

When shipping large cranes to exceed the legal sizes and weights, shipping permits are needed. Once acquired, we’re allowed to transport oversized and overweight cranes without getting in trouble. For extensive cranes, we deploy escort cars to guide the drivers through the journey. Their work is to keep other motorists at a distance for safety purposes, control traffic when the trailer turns, and instruct the driver on the best routes to use. Shipping oversize and overweight cranes without escort vehicles can be dangerous because the driver can’t see oncoming traffic or know the routes to use without getting stuck. Our specialists determine the trailer to be used based on the weight and dimensions. The most common trailers used to transport cranes include flatbeds, drop decks, lowboys, and RGNs. Lowboy and drop decks trailers allow us to transport tall cranes easily because they’re lower to the ground, making it easy to pass beneath bridges. We plan the routes to use in advance to avoid any delays. In case of unforeseen circumstances such as accidents or heavy storms, our specialists update the driver and instruct them on the route to use.
