What to Look for in a Backhoe Haulage Service
There are things you can look out for that will help you determine the right backhoe haulage service for your needs. Start with asking about their prior experience. Heavy machinery transport requires an experienced truckie, so make sure you ask.
Check if the backhoe haulage service can accommodate to your exact requirements. If you have multiple pieces of machinery freight, then check if they can take them all at once. Back and forth trips can be costly, so always check their capacity before you get started.
Your backhoe is an expensive piece of machinery, so you want to make sure it’s safe during transit. Ask the haulage service for their Certificate of Currency which will determine if they have the insurance required to keep you and your backhoe safe.
Also ask about the care they take in hauling your backhoe from the point of loading, when it’s in transit and all the way through to unloading. This plays a big role in whether you’ve got a good haulage company.
Think about how they communicate with you. Did you get a prompt call within 24 hours of requesting quotes? Was communication open when discussing collection and delivery? If you said yes to these questions, then you’ve found yourself an excellent backhoe haulage service.
