What Are The Weight and Size Limits for Heavy Equipment Shipping?

If the weight and size of your heavy equipment got you worried about whether it can be shipped via trucks, then you should pay attention to this section. First, let’s remember that the trucks used to move heavy equipment are the same as those carrying cars regularly.

This means they are not as spacious as ocean freight carrying hundreds of cars or even some of the heaviest loads. That said, if you know the limits, you will be more confident transporting your heavy machinery or equipment as you’ll know it fits the legal limits.

That said, let’s first see the sizes and typical legal weight carrying limits (net weight it can haul) for the five most common haulers below:

Trailer/Truck TypeMaximum Legal Weight (lbs)Maximum Legal Length (ft)Maximum Legal Width (ft)Maximum Legal Height (ft)
Dry Van45,00052.58.5 (100")9.2 (110")
Flatbed48,000488.5 (102")8.5 (102")
Step Deck (Drop-Deck)48,000378.5 (102")10 (120")
Double-Drop (Lowboy)45,000298.5 (102")11.5 (138")
RGN (Detachable Deck)44,000298.5 (102")12 (144")

Here, the maximum legal weight means the total weight a trailer can haul besides its own weight (hauler’s own weight). Below, we’ll provide a state-by-state legal weight limits for trucks as per their axles so you can know exactly which type of trailer can haul how much weight just by knowing the number of its axles.

If you don’t know, an axle is the transverse shaft that has its ends entered into the wheel hub. These are mechanical components found at the rear and front of heavy trucks, and their main purpose is to support the load of the vehicle (and the load its hauling) and maintain space between its wheels. Some common axel groups:

Now that you know the background of trucks used to haul heavy loads and the role of axles, let’s see the legal weight-carrying limits for trucks in all U.S states.

Look no further than Easy Auto Ship - the go-to heavy equipment mover that caters to all your equipment transport needs. Our expert team of shippers is here to guide you through every step for a seamless, stress-free, and safe movement of your valuable assets.

Whether it is an expensive piece of construction machinery, big-ticket agricultural equipment, or a rental unit that needs to be hauled across the country, we have got you covered! Here’s how we work in five easy steps to provide you with top-notch heavy equipment transport services:

Step 1

Request a Quote

Start by using our user-friendly online shipping calculator to get multiple shipping quotes within minutes. Alternatively, you can chat live with our expert transport agents or send us an SMS to get free quotes. Make sure to provide all essential details, such as:

  • Pick up, drop off zip codes
  • Weight and dimensions of the load
  • Type of load
  • Service type required
  • Any special requirements.

If our cost-effective rates work best for you, gather some necessary documentation such as:

  • Title certificate or notarized bill of sale to prove heavy equipment ownership
  • Receiver and shippers’ identification
  • Power of attorney form giving the movers the legal right to move and handle the shipment
  • Specifications and dimensions/weight of the heavy equipment you are transporting

Ensure all of these essential details are accurate for a seamless transport experience.

Step 2

Find out The Dimension and Weight

To ensure that we choose the most suitable trailer for your equipment transport needs, make sure to measure the following dimensions:

  • Length (typically ranging from 48ft to 65ft)
  • Height (typically 13.6 ft)
  • Width (typically 8.6 ft)
  • Weight (up to 80,000 gross weight is legally allowed in most states. After that point, some penalties and fees may apply).

You can either measure these dimensions yourself or seek expert help from garages that typically have the equipment to measure the weight and dimensions of heavy loads.

Knowing the exact specifications of the heavy equipment and machinery will enable us to use the right trailer, ensuring regulatory compliance and hiring the most competent carriers.

Step 3

Select the Right Trailer

Our transport specialists will help you find the best trailer and carrier depending on the dimensions and weight of your heavy equipment.

Most heavy loads are moved using lowboy trailers or flatbed trailers.

However, our company offers a wide range of other types of trailers with varying load-carrying capabilities, number of axles, and spaces between axles for optimal and convenient logistics processes.

Step 4

Preparing Heavy Equipment or Machinery for Transport

Before our hauler embarks on moving your equipment, you must prepare it for transportation. This includes:

  • Removing mud from any machinery
  • Covering smokestacks on equipment where necessary
  • Adjusting booms and hoists
  • Selecting the load spot for easy and secure loading of your machinery.
  • Removing batteries and latching the doors closed

Our experts at Easy Auto Ship are always available to assist you in these preparations to ensure that your gear is safely transported without any damage.

Step 5

Receive Heavy Equipment

Once your precious cargo is successfully delivered, inspect it thoroughly upon receipt, sign the Bill of Lading if everything checks out, and that’s it!

Our company takes immense pride in offering customers the most dependable and safe mode of transportation for their heavy assets while providing unparalleled customer support services.

At Easy Auto Ship, we understand that local and overseas equipment transport can be time-taking, challenging and sometimes expensive, so we strive to provide our customers with flexible, fast, and cost-effective options that suit their budget constraints.

On a Tight Budget? Here’s How to Save Money and Get Maximum Bang for Your Buck:

On a tight budget? Don’t let that keep you from getting the most out of the heavy equipment hauling rates you pay! With Easy Auto Ship, we aim to provide maximum value and leave you with a hefty load off your shoulders, so let us share some tried-and-true tips on making the most of your transportation dollars.

Shop A round for Competitive Shipping Quotes

Don’t settle for the first mover quote you receive – compare multiple shipping quotes to ensure you find the best cost for your specific needs. Be wary of companies offering prices too good to be true; a reliable mover will offer competitive yet reasonable rates for their services.

Choose a Flexible Pick-up & Delivery Times

By being open to a broader time window for pick-up and delivery, you may enjoy significant savings as companies can better accommodate your shipment into their existing schedule.

Select the Right Trailer Type

Not all shipments require an expensive specialized trailer. For instance, your shipment may only need a Double Drop Deck trailer instead of an RGN (which is more expensive than a Double Drop Deck). So work closely with our expert transport team at Easy Auto Ship to determine the most cost-effective option that suits your specific load, ensuring you only pay for what you need.

Consider DIY Preparation

You might save even more cash by prepping your equipment yourself before transportation, such as cleaning it or performing minor disassembly tasks like detaching accessories or side mirrors. Consult the manufacturer’s manual to see if you can pull it off (YouTube is also your friend).

Look Into Consolidation

If multiple pieces of heavy equipment need transportation or if someone in your social network is also moving equipment to the same city or state, explore grouping them together in one shipment to reduce costs by taking advantage of economies of scale.

Utilize Backhaul Opportunities

If your heavy equipment can be transported as a backhaul (a returning truck’s extra space), this can significantly cut costs while ensuring a safe move.

Negotiate

Going the extra mile to negotiate with your chosen auto transport company might yield additional discounts or special offers, so put on your haggling hat and try!

Don’t let budget constraints hold you back – trust Easy Auto Ship to deliver the most cost-effective and high-quality service for all your heavy equipment transport needs! Call us at (888) 687-3243 to find out the quotes for free, right now!

Safety Measures We Take to Ensure Secure Heavy Equipment Transport

At Easy Auto Ship, we recognize that your heavy equipment’s safety is paramount. An essential aspect of transporting valuable machinery is adhering to all regulatory requirements and ensuring proper handling throughout the process. To guarantee the secure transport of your heavy equipment, our company follows a comprehensive set of safety measures:

Compliance with D.O.T. and Other Authorities:

We strictly adhere to Department of Transportation (D.O.T) regulations for secure heavy equipment transport to ensure the security system used to transport equipment prevents it from blowing, sliding, tipping, rolling off, or falling off the trailer. It also ensures the equipment stays firm in its position and does not affect the stability or maneuverability of the heavy hauler. Some of these requirements include:

Right Trailer Size & Weight Handling Capability:

Our expert team carefully coordinates the selection process, opting for trailers that can accommodate your heavy equipment’s size and weight while staying in legal limits defined by the regulatory authorities.

Inspecting Trailers:

Trailers undergo thorough inspections before shipping to ensure optimal performance and safety.

Vetting Carriers:

We collaborate only with certified and reputable carriers (checking their insurance claims history, license, certifications, history of transport and so on) to guarantee a seamless transport experience.

Using Tie-Downs;

Adhering to D.O.T. regulations, our team utilizes tie-downs to stabilize and secure your heavy equipment during transit. We tighten tie-downs for optimal stability as an additional protective measure.

Chaining When Possible:

Our experienced staff uses solid chains to reinforce attachment points and maximize security during transportation.

Utilizing Edge Protection and Blocking:

Easy Auto Ship employs blocking techniques and edge protection to safeguard your equipment against potential damage during transit.

Securing Wheels with Chocks or Wedges:

To prevent unwanted movement of your machinery, our team employs chocks and wedges to secure the wheels.

Using Friction Devices if Necessary:

When required, we use friction devices to minimize the risk of your equipment moving during transportation.

Choosing Appropriate Attachment Points:

Our staff carefully selects suitable attachment points to ensure safe and secure transport.

Securing Equipment Components:

Loose or removable components of your heavy equipment are appropriately secured during loading, transit, and unloading.

Trust the transport savants at Easy Auto Ship with your valuable machinery, and enjoy peace of mind knowing that our team follows best practices and complies with D.O.T. and other authorities’ regulations for safe heavy equipment transport.

5 Important Things to Consider When Getting Heavy Equipment Transport:

Getting heavy equipment transported can be daunting and require planning, forethought, and meticulous execution. To help you ensure a seamless experience, here are five crucial things to consider when moving heavy machinery:

Permits

Make sure all paperwork is ready and permits are obtained to avoid unforeseen delays. At Easy Auto Ship, we gladly help you with this process so you can rest assured that your equipment is transported legally and safely.

Check the Manual

Before dismantling your machinery for transportation, consult the manufacturer’s manual, watch YouTube video tutorials, or contact the manufacturer directly to understand the appropriate disassembly methods. For machines with engines, some manufacturers may advise leaving the engine upside down overnight to drain the oil and removing batteries before transport.

Pack the Parts

Once disassembled, inventory all components and parts. Pack them securely, label each package with its contents, and ship them together for easier reassembly at the destination.

Select an Experienced Transport Company

Choosing a reliable auto transport company with expertise in moving heavy machinery is crucial to ensuring safe transportation. At Easy Auto Ship, our experienced team will help you through every step of the process and provide tailored solutions for your specific needs.

Insurance Coverage

Verify if your business insurance policy or the transporter’s cargo policy covers heavy equipment transport; if not, it is essential to invest in adequate coverage like Gap coverage to protect against potential damages during transit.

When entrusting your valuable machinery to a professional company like Easy Auto Ship, you can expect timely delivery and peace of mind knowing that your shipment is handled responsibly.

⭐Review From Jennifer B

“My corporation needed to move a skid steer that we sold. This isn’t something we normally do and contracting a regular tractor/ trailer wouldn’t work. Gary and Tiffany worked hard to get a driver in here next day so we could get the equipment moving. The price was also great, I got quotes from two other places and Easy Auto Ship beat them both out by about $200.00.”

How We Helped Jennifer B Move a Skid Steer That Her Company Sold

Jeniffer B came to us with a challenging situation in the sense that it was time-sensitive. Her company just sold a Skid Steer, and they needed to immediately have it moved to the customer. Since a Skid Steer is a heavy piece of equipment arranging for an oversized cargo hauler is a challenge in itself, and that too on such an urgent basis. Jennifer contacted Easy Auto Ship, and we immediately found a qualified, expert, and experienced driver to carry the load for her company. He picked up the Skid Steer the next day, and the rest of the delivery went smoothly as well. The best part about all this is that we solved a problem that may have required Jennifer to shell out a TON of money since brokers look for such customers who are desperate to get the job done and benefit from their situation by asking for more money. We, on the other hand, offered a quote that was $200 less than what Jennifer received from others.

⭐Review From Chris Giaimo

“They did a great job transporting my large SUV (enclosed) from FL to NY. Picked it up right from the dealer and delivered in perfect condition to my home. Recommend!”

How We Shipped Chris Giaimo’s Large SUV from FL to NY

Chris owned an oversized SUV that needed to reach New York from Florida in an enclosed container. He wanted someone who had the rig and the expertise to handle such a complicated move. His search on the internet led him to Easy Auto Ship. We provided Chris with a competitive quote for enclosed oversized load shipping, and he agreed. Since Chris was in New York, he needed us to pick up the SUV from the dealer in Florida, which we did by coordinating with the dealership. The whole process went smoothly; his SUV arrived home in a clean condition, protected from debris and weather elements, thanks to the enclosed carrier.

⭐Review From Christina Fensley

“Shipped a large Massey Ferguson Farm Tractor and a brush hog attached from CT to NC. Amy, customer service was excellent to work with. Very knowledgeable on all facets of the transaction. The price was very reasonable. The shipping company was great, delivery of item was just as it left with out any damages. Driver was pleasant and very professional. The follow-up concerning delivery was prompt. I would highly recommend this company for any shipments.”

How We Relocated Christina Fensley’s Massey Ferguson Farm Tractor and Brush Hog from CT to NC

Christina needed to move her big Masset Ferguson Farm Tractor and its attachment, a brush hog. Moving such oversized loads is no easy feat, and there’s often the risk of them arriving damaged, as their size makes it hard to load and unload safely. This is what worried Christina the most when she approached us. Amy from our transport support department calmed Christina down, answered all of her questions, informed her about the whole process, and booked the best hauler for her. We booked a large oversized hauler for both the farm tractor and the brush attachment, and everything went smoothly from the pickup in Connecticut to the drop-off in North Carolina.

⭐Review From Bob Uliss

“Transporting an M1082 2.5 ton Army Trailer from GovPlanet lot in TX to shop in Bend OR was easy for these guys. Even with COVID issues.”

How We Hauled M1082 2.5 Ton Army Trailer from TX to Bend, OR for Bob Uliss

Bob Uliss wanted to move an M1082 2.5-ton Army Trailer to his shop in Bend, Oregon, from a GovPlanet lot in Texas. The job was complicated because not only did this trailer require a heavy-duty hauler, but it was the COVID-19 pandemic era, so there were a lot of restrictions on travel and transport. However, we understood the requirements of Bob, gave him a competitive quote, and he booked the service. We coordinated with the involved parties to pick up the M1082 2.5-Ton Army Trailer from GovPlanet Lit in Texas and safely delivered it to Bob’s shop in Bend, Oregon.

⭐Review From Mike Courtright

“Outstanding communication. Transported class B motorhome from Fort Lauderdale to southern Ohio in less than two days. Zinmo Transport LLC also had outstanding service. Scheduled arrival for 11 AM, arrived 10:55! couldn’t have been better. Thanks”

How We Hauled Mike’s Class B Motorhome from Ford Lauderdale, Florida, to Southern Ohio

The south of Ohio includes many cities, including Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus, so we get many requests for moving vehicles there. Mike Courtright needed us to move his Class B Motorhome from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Southern Ohio. The job needed responsible handling and specialized trailers because moving something as heavy and oversized as a class-B motorhome is not what most carriers do. So we hired Zinmo Transport carrier, which ensured the RV was picked up on time and delivered fast. The time of arrival was 11 a.m., and the motorhome was delivered at 10:55 a.m. sharp.
