What You Should Know About Moving Heavy Machinery by Rail or Ship

  1. 1. Moving heavy machinery is not an easy process. There are a number of logistical issues that need to be worked out to make sure that the machinery makes it safely from one location to another. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  2. 2. Finding transportation that is capable of handling not only the weight, but also the height and width of large pieces of equipment can be a challenge. This is where rail or ship transportation can help. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  3. 3. Large ships move into and out of every major port in the country daily. If you have heavy machinery that needs to be moved from one country to another, or from one coast to another, you can often find a spot for it on one of these ships. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  4. 4. If you plan to ship the equipment to another country, you will need to make sure that all of the correct paperwork has been filed. This includes a customs declaration, as well as any other documentation that the country on the receiving end requires. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  5. 5. Every major port in the country also has a railroad that leaves directly from the port. Many railway companies are capable of hauling heavy equipment. However, depending on the size and shape of your equipment, there may be special considerations that need to be taken into account. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  6. 6. To prevent any problems or misunderstandings, it is important to talk to the person in charge of shipping at the railroad to make arrangements for your equipment. They will be able to advise you as to whether or not they can transport the equipment for you. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  7. 7. The key to successfully moving heavy equipment by ship or rail lies in good communication. You should start the process by contacting a company or provider who regularly ships oversized freight. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  8. 8. You may want to contact several different companies for price quotes to make sure that you aren’t overpaying for the service. Prices tend to vary between movers, so you may be able to save money by choosing the least expensive service. Just be sure you fully understand what is included in each quote. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
  9. 9. Whether you want to work directly with the ship and railway companies yourself, or hire a freight company to do it for you, with some careful planning it is possible to get your equipment where it needs to go. More info on: http://mcpheefreight.com.au/machinery-transport/oversize-loads/
