Requesting Farm Machinery Transport Costs
There are different types of farm headers, and these farm machines are often heavy, wide and valuable. To make sure you only hear back from farm machinery transporters with an appropriate truck or trailer for your freight, please advise the full dimensions of your header, plus the type and the make and model if you know it. For instance, is it a combine header, stripper header, draper header or another kind? Another important detail is what type of loading and unloading equipment you’ll be using. This can be specified in the description field. Otherwise, write a note if you require the transporter to perform this for you.
Did you know you can save money by putting all your farm machinery into one request? If you’re unsure of the make and model, or any measurements, give your best estimate and try and upload up to 5 photos, so transporters have a better idea of what they’re quoting on.
As with any type of farm machinery transport, safety and access are super-important. Plan for your farm header delivery by notifying the transporter of difficult access, safety hazards (such as power lines) and directions. Briefly describe each premises, and make sure the transporter knows what to expect regarding loading and unloading areas, times, and manoeuvring the truck at each site.
Choosing a Heavy Machinery Transporter
When you’ve got your 3 heavy machinery transport quotes, we recommend speaking to the transporters directly before selecting your preferred quote. Ensure you get a written email quote and find out about the company’s current level of insurance. Have you obtained a fixed price quote or might extra costs apply? A reputable transporter will cheerfully advise you about permits (if applicable) and preparing your header for transport.
