Spotter Truck

Heavy Haulers Provides Spotter Truck Shipping Nationwide

Terminal tractors also called yard spotters or spotter trucks, are used primarily in a cargo yard, warehouse facility, or intermodal facility to position trucks and trailers. They work similarly to switch cars in a locomotive facility. Ensuring that these machines stay easy to maneuver is critical to the success of your warehouse organization. When moving them from one location to the next, it's important that the transportation service understands how to secure the load to ensure there is no shifting or damage.

Ship Your Terminal Tractor with an Experienced Heavy Haulers Agent.

Choosing Heavy Haulers to move your terminal tractor from one location to the next means you're choosing a company that has experience with long-distance shipments of yard spotters and spotter trucks. We plan the best route, avoiding difficult terrain as much as possible and carefully plotting the way through congested city streets or construction zones. Your terminal tractor shipment includes properly weighing and documenting the load, ensuring that your equipment will safely pass through weigh stations. The style you choose may depend on the climate of an area and the condition of the jobsite—how much dust they are typically exposed to, for example.

Heavy Haulers can ship your terminal tractor of any size. Although all of these vehicles require a multi-axle trailer to ship, some can ship on a step deck trailer while others may require something larger. Heavy Haulers knows precisely how to ship your terminal tractor in accordance with regulations for every state or country it travels through.

From electric trucks to yard dogs, terminal trailers can move easily with either a large pickup truck or a smaller rig. Heavy Haulers provides expert logistical help for route planning and assembling any necessary paperwork. While terminal tractors don't usually require an escort convoy, if needed, Heavy Haulers can arrange that, as well. Shipping these trucks, while not as large as other machinery we ship, still requires professional expertise.

You Have Options With Heavy Haulers

Transporting the terminal tractor successfully requires the collaboration of experts in logistics, heavy transport, and mechanics.
