You know it’s an important transport when we can’t disclose who it’s for or why. Let’s just say that a high-profile client contacted Dylan in our Doral, FL office because they knew he could handle the massive project.
These mobile dwelling units are an ongoing project. Dylan transported eighteen (18) of the fifty units in January; the rest are scheduled through February and March. This wasn’t just some simple transport, but rather a long and complicated one.
In fact, because the client is so high profile, we can’t disclose the actual transport schedule.
The mobile dwelling units are essential to an upcoming project to house employees and their families.
Dylan took extreme care to ensure that each modular dwelling unit would be transported safely and delivered on time according to the pre-planned schedule.
Mobile Dwelling Unit Dimensions:
In order to protect the interior, the manufacturing factory wrapped the mobile dwelling units with custom-made water-repellent polypropylene. Dylan had the manager double-check the wrapping before loading because the 1,594-mile transport would have high winds along some roads.
To ensure that all arrived together and that there was no delay for those who would reside in the mobile dwelling units, Dylan acquired nine (9) stretch RGN trailers for hauling. He vetted each driver, assuring not only that they had clean and exemplary driving records but also that they would make a good fit, considering the need for discretion on behalf of the high-profile client.
Dylan contracted the best forklift crew in the area to load the wrapped mobile dwelling units onto the trailers safely. Ratchet straps were only used on one of the mobile dwelling units, as the rest couldn’t have the pressure on the top due to roofing and housing components. They would bend or snap with high-tension straps.
Instead, the team and manufacturing company created custom “dog ear” hook points on the underside of the units. They were chained underneath in the front and back to secure it to the RGN trailer and prevent movement safely.
The mobile dwelling units are 13.40 ft high and are not aerodynamic. Without the luxury of traditional strapping and chain points, the team had to triple-check that every aspect of securement was done right. The mobile dwelling had to be delivered safely and on time to ensure the smooth progression of the project.
Even with proper prior planning, things change on the road, which is why Dylan stayed on top of the mobile dwelling unit during transport.
Dylan rerouted the team several times due to the need for at least 15 ft bridge clearances. Some of the bridges were just too low to get under safely. So Dylan guided the convoy to safe, alternate routes while keeping the timeline in mind.
The team hit extremely high winds during transport, tearing off several wrappings. This exposed the modular dwelling units to the elements which they wanted to avoid. So, the drivers and team pulled off and patched everything with duct tape to ensure the protection of the modular dwelling units.
The expert team safely delivered the modular dwelling units to the undisclosed location. Because of the sensitive nature of the transport, the team could only photograph the modular dwelling units at the pickup location.
Dylan’s expert transport knowledge and superior professionalism made this a successful transport. Eighteen (18) down, thirty-two (32) to go.
Dylan’s got this covered.
Total Cargo Value: $415,0000
Dylan is an experienced logistics agent who has been to every state in the U.S. He enjoys transporting all agricultural equipment. However, he might be a bit biased toward anything John Deere. Having traveled to 20+ countries, Dylan enjoys speaking with people of all backgrounds. This is another reason he enjoys equipment transport. Not only does he get to learn about different machinery, but about various cultures from his clients.
Dylan is also a Veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Thanks for your service, Dylan!
