Transport you Tractors with easeNov, 28, 2017 / admin
Tractor transporting services are required by anyone, be it a hobbyist or a serious farmer. For example if you have to move your farm or any of your machinery needs to be repaired you will need the help of these experts to take care of the transportation of your property. The machinery can vary a great deal in their size, thus some can be transported like normal cars and vans, while some actually need to be towed to the place.
You must always consider certain things before you call for the tractor transport services:
- Type of tractor: the size and type of the tractor you will need to transport should be ascertained first. Knowing the weight and the size of the vehicle you need to transport will help give you more accurate transport quotes.
- Condition: the condition of your vehicle should always be checked before the transportation and mentioned to the transporters. You must document it before you move so that you can notice if something gets damaged while transporting.
- Working order: no matter what, while transporting your tractor will be either towed or hauled into a truck. Tractors that don’t work might need to be craned or carried to the transport. Otherwise working ones can be driven to the hauling truck.
- Remove loose items: you need to remove all the loose items from your vehicle as they will not be covered in the transport insurance.
- Prepare the vehicle: your vehicle must have proper inflated tyres and also fluid levels before its transportation, especially when the tractor needs to be driven a little from the trailers.
While loading the tractor
You can choose to yourself drive your tractor into the trailer or let the transporter handle it. Inside the trailer you must ensure that the vehicle is secure with its brakes on and chains or straps attached to it to keep it in place. It is the transporter’s responsibility to provide all the necessary equipment required to secure the vehicle. The tractor transport services in New York are very efficient in these matters. You should try and oversee the securing if possible.
Low Loader Trailer: these huge flatbeds are towed by a lorry cab or a semi-truck. They are mainly used for transporting heavy machinery. These flatbeds can bear a great load, so it can transport more vehicles in one trip.
Standard Trailer: for the small vehicles a normal trailer is enough for the transportation.
Insurance: you should always make sure you have insurance as tractors are very valuable and expensive.
License: the drivers need special license to move such huge machinery. Mae sure your driver has his.
Experience: also a license is not enough. An immature driver might not know the intricacies of transporting particular vehicles. Make sure your tractor transport company sends you an experienced one.
When the vehicle arrives
Most of the companies will deliver your vehicle up to your gate. But sometimes due to restricted access you might need to drive it some of the way. Check for any damage and you’re good to go.
Save Time & Money: Safe. Reliable. Dependable.

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.
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.
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.
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!
