Crane Shipping 101: Cost of Transporting a Crane, Load Assistance, Pilot Cars and More

The cost of shipping a crane varies on several factors. The type of crane, the crane dimensions, and the crane weight are just a few things that go into calculating costs. Cranes are usually oversize loads, so permits will need to be gained. This, along with other things, makes the cost of transporting a crane fluctuate. When you speak to one of our transport specialists, we’ll gather all the necessary information to find you the best quote to haul your crane. At Heavy Haulers the client comes first, so we always find the most competitive prices.

Certain cranes will need load assistance to get on the trailer. Cranes are often loaded with forklifts or other cranes. Also, because cranes are oversize cargo, pilot cars and escort vehicles may be required. Heavy Haulers provides load assistance and escort vehicles for transporting your crane. We put everything together, so you know that your crane is in safe hands. Call Heavy Haulers and get your free crane transportation quote now! (800) 908-6206

Oversize crane transported on a lowboy trailer

What Type of Trailer is Used to Transport a Crane?

Multiple types of trailers are used to transport cranes. The most common types are lowboy trailers, flatbed trailers, drop deck trailers, and Removable Gooseneck Trailers (RGNs). Generally, the height and weight of the crane transport determines the type of trailer it will be shipped on. For instance, if your crane is over the standard 13.5 feet, it is an oversize load. Using a drop deck or lowboy trailer will keep it lower to the ground, granting access beneath bridges or other low hanging architecture that it may not fit on otherwise. When the route is planned, permits for the oversize load are pulled, ensuring that the path is safe for the driver and the crane freight. Our expert transport specialists are ready to find the best trailer to ship your crane. Call now! (800) 908-6206
