Trustworthy Excavation Equipment Transport

Excavation equipment is handy for construction sites, road work, mining fields, and more. Companies need a reliable company to ship excavation equipment to a different location once a project is done. Excavation equipment easily maneuvers around job sites but can’t be driven over long distances. A professional and experienced excavation equipment transport company like Wide Load Shipping transports excavation equipment safely and delivers on time. The trailer used is determined by the weight and dimensions of your excavation equipment. Large excavation equipment is driven onto the trailer with care.

The uses of hydraulic excavators are to rotate, excavate, mobilize, load, move, and demobilize objects. We transport hydraulic excavators using RGNs or double-drop deck trailers. 

  • Mobile Excavators

Mobile excavators are used for demolition, digging work, material handling and as a support frame for different attachments, such as ditch cleaning buckets and hydraulic hammers. We transport mobile excavators using flatbeds, step decks, and hotshots. 

  • Long-reach Excavators

Long-reach excavators are used to demolish buildings, dig wells, do metro construction, and do river cleaning. We transport them using RGNs and double-drop deck trailers.

Crawler excavators are used to excavate foundations, trenches, and holes, dredging, grading, landscaping, demolition, digging, picking, and moving debris. We use RGNs to transport crawler excavators from one location to another. 

A professional driver operates it, and the rigging crew on the ground guide him, ensuring it sits on the trailer safely before it’s secured for transport. We offer transport services for single oversize excavators or bulk transport to ship several excavators at once. Let’s ship your excavation equipment today!

We provide pilot cars when shipping oversize and overweight excavation equipment to guide our drivers on the roads.

How to Load and Unload Excavation Equipment on a Trailer

Loading and unloading excavation equipment is done with care to avoid any accidents or bruising. We use professional drivers familiar with your excavation equipment and rigging crews to guide them during the loading process. Excavation equipment is loaded on a trailer by driving it through a ramp at a slow speed for precision. Once the excavation equipment balanced, all the attachments are lowered, and the engine is turned off. It’s then secured using strong chains or straps for transport. The unloading process is similar, but the driver reverses the excavation equipment over the ramps with the guide of a rigging expert on the ground. Small excavators aren’t always driven on a trailer. Sometimes, they’re lifted using a crane. Once the shipment is dispatched, our drivers make regular integrity stops to tighten the straps and chains securing the excavation equipment. Before we load excavation equipment on a trailer, we inspect it and fill out a Bill of Lading (BOL) form.
