Heavy Machinery Transport Services
Heavy machinery transport services are necessary when you need to move a large piece of equipment. There are many different types of heavy machinery, and each one requires a specific type of transport. You can't just use any truck or van to move a bulldozer, for example.
Transport companies have the experience and knowledge necessary to move heavy machinery safely and efficiently. They have the right trucks and trailers, as well as the proper permits and insurance. They also have the experience dealing with tight spots, narrow roads, and other challenging transportation scenarios.
If you need to move a heavy piece of machinery, be sure to contact FreightRun. We will take care of everything for you so that your machine arrives at its destination safely and on time.
Which shipping class to use for machinery transportation

Don’t Forget to Add Supplementary Insurance!
FreightRun clients can add supplementary insurance when they move new or used equipment. This can be done by having the carrier’s insurance company increase their limits and confirm they cover the specific type of machine, used or new, that is being moved.
Also, FreightRun has a supplementary policy available from a third-party insurance company that is more liberal, more inclusive, and which will even pay the claim first and then go after the carrier’s policy if necessary.
Not only will FreightRun take the legwork out of securing your heavy machinery transport, we’re also committed to reducing those shipping costs for you and protecting you from all in-transit risks.
