Request Rates for Forklift Jib Transportation
For transportation purposes, a forklift jib attachment is listed under general freight. The quantity and weight of the attachments being transported is a crucial part of your request. It will determine the type of vehicle that can safely transport your forklift jib.
Need the transporters to get their rates to you as quickly as possible? Advise whether you have a full load, part load or small load. As an example, a full truck load would fill a 12-tonne truck. In the description box, you can state how many jib attachments you’re moving and the weight and full dimensions if you know them. The make and model of your forklift jib can also go into the description box.
As a forklift jib is usually heavy, loading and unloading them from the truck or trailer becomes an important consideration. Do you have your own loading and unloading equipment to use? Do you need the transporter to get the forklift jib on and off the truck for you? Write a brief note in the description field, so you can find suitably equipped transport companies.
Including a few photos is handy for indicating the size of your freight load, especially if you’re estimating weight or measurements. And, it tells the transporters if their type of vehicle is appropriate to transport your freight.
What to Look for in a Transport Company
When you’ve got your transport costs, you deal directly with the transport company to get your forklift jib moved. It’s free to get your freight rates and you don’t need to hire any of the transporters who supply them.
It’s a good idea to look for a transport company who is properly insured, experienced and able to supply a fixed price quotation. Discuss aspects like loading and unloading and how they secure your freight during transportation.
