How To Ship Your Tractor Smoothly

Sep, 23, 2017 /

It is quite common that farmers or tractor owners and tractor dealers need to frequently ship their tractors using transport companies. In case of farmers moving to new farm lands, they require professional shipping services to avoid any problems. In case of tractor dealerships, they need to move tractors from manufacturing plants to retail outlets in a timely manner.

Thus you need the services of a registered and professional tractor moving company to help you like tractor movers in New York. You know that shipping a tractor is very different from shipping other vehicles. This is true because of the large size of the tractor, uniqueness in its operation and difference in shape.

If you own a tractor and want to ship it to a new destination, it is going to cost you time and money.  You must take adequate care so that none of these is wasted. Here are some tips for smooth shipping of your tractor:

  • Find professionals:

To find a good shipping company for your tractor, you need to identify companies with the expertise and experience. It is good to locate a company with several years experience. Do not settle for any random company but find one which knows the needs for transporting tractors. Selecting a company with experience means that they are capable of handling any risks or problems in the process of shipping.

  • Big trailers:

Tractors being so huge in size need the services of a large trailer for transport. Search for tractor shipping companies who possess large trailers which are in good condition to ship your tractor.

  • Timeliness:

Tractors being large vehicles need more time to be transported. Hence make sure that you find a company which will provide exact date of delivery of your vehicle. Any delay in date of delivery can ruin your plans and arrangements. Hence it is good to be ready to take delivery of the tractor when it arrives.

  • Additional costs

Since tractors are complex vehicles, they will cost you big amounts of money in case you have to get them repaired. Hence ensure that the shipping company possesses all the insurance documents needed for smooth shipping of your tractor. The company must also be ready for any liabilities that arise during transport of your tractor.

  • Making booking:

Nowadays it is easy to book services for tractor transport. Majority of transport companies offer online customer support services to help book and order.  A few clicks on your device and you can solicit many quotes from various shippers. After you are happy with a company and its quote, you can make an online booking. The remaining work will be done by the professionals.

  • Preparing tractor

After you have selected the carrier company, you must take some measures to prepare the tractor for transport.  Clean the vehicle thoroughly and make any record of damages. Take photos of the tractor from all angles to ascertain its condition before shipping.

 Load the tractor on to the trailer. This is to ensure that hood of the vehicle is not damaged by motion or wind. Reduce the stress on the mower link by letting down the link up to the bed of the trailer. Do not leave excess fuel in the tank of the tractor and close the valve for the fuel.

These are some ideas for smooth shipping of your tractor.

Our clients say


They were very professional along the way as was the driver who checked in to arrange time of pick-up, and time of drop-off while on the road. We requested an enclosed truck, which was exactly what arrived at our home for our two vintage cars going from NV to TX. We had heard horror stories about companies who take your money and not deliver what you request, so we were extremely happy with Route Runners. Also know, Route Runners was very friendly over the phone and had answered all my questions in full detail. I would speak highly of to anybody I knew who need their car transported.

Route Runners was able to deliver a driver at a reasonable rate

I've used Route Runners Auto Transport to ship my car from CA to NC (and back). It was my first time dealing with car shipping and it went very smoothly working with Route Runners! They gave me a good price and also worked hard to honor the price while searching for carriers. They are easy to get a hold of by phone and always email confirmations. Will definitely be recommending this company to friends and family for their car shipment needs.

They Were Incredibly Reliable

I needed my 2006 335i BMW transported from New Jersey to Seattle. The booking process with Route Runners Auto Transport went very smoothly, and within 24 hours I had a pickup date for my vehicle. My vehicle was picked up on June 2 and delivered to my home in Seattle, WA on June 7 (within 5 days). The car was delivered in the same condition it was picked up, and all the cargo inside the vehicle was untouched and undamaged. Communication with the truck driver is easy, as you can text/call them anytime to check on the status of the delivery. I am very pleased with the ease of use and speedy delivery provided by Route Runners Auto Transport. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs their vehicle transported quick.

Speedy Delivery and Easy to Use

All I know is I am very happy my car made it from Michigan to Florida in one piece and free of any scratches or dents. I called the driver for his status when he was in transit and was very nice to hear his updates. I was very worried at first since my car is a baby still (I've only had it a few months) so trusting my car in someone else's hands was scary!

I am delighted I found Route Runners
