Cost of Shipping Farm equipment in Nova Scotia

The cost of hauling farm equipment in Nova Scotia depends on different factors. They include distance, weight, dimensions, mode of transport, season, and more. For example, shipping farm equipment costs more during winter than in other seasons. That’s because of the weather, which increases the risk of accidents during transport, loading, and unloading. Therefore, we use cranes to load and unload farm equipment during harsh weather because it’s safer than driving them on and off. In addition, we use tarps to cover farm equipment to protect them from snow and debris.


Our farm equipment hauling services are door to door, business to business, terminal to terminal, port to business, and more. We offer free and accurate farm equipment shipping quotes.




Fully Insured Farm Equipment Transport Services in Nova Scotia



Every piece of farm equipment transported by Tractor Transport is fully insured to protect it against damage. Even better, we add the name of the owner to a copy of our insurance so that if their farm equipment arrives with new dents, they can claim compensation directly from the insurance company.


A bill of lading form must be filled out before farm equipment is loaded on a trailer to document its condition before transport. Once delivered, this form is used to help us know if the condition of your farm equipment matches the information filled out at the pick-up location. To transport farm equipment to or from Nova Scotia, call us today for a free quote.

Tractor Transport Offers an Extensive Range of Trailer Choices To Haul Your Farm Equipment

FLATBED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES


Our most versatile and commonly used trailer by far is the standard flatbed trailer, made evident by the sheer number of them on the road every day. A great aspect of flatbed trailer shipping is the stability of the bed and the fact that these common carriers come in a wide variety of sizes and dimensions. A flatbed trailer, as the name suggests, is marked by a flat trailer surface that's able to be loaded with stability by balancing and securing cargo on the outside edges of the trailer.


Flatbed Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 48,000 pounds
Max Length 53 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 8.5 ft.

RGN (REMOVABLE GOOSENECK) TRANSPORT SERVICES



RGN Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 42,000+ pounds
Main Deck Length 29 ft.
Well Width 8.5 ft.
Legal Height Limit 11.6 ft.

The Removable Gooseneck (RGN) trailer has a detachable front end that turns the trailer into a ramp. Past the detachable section of the trailer, RGNs are equipped with a double drop formation that lends the payload an extra amount of height, usually around 12 extra inches. The variable nature of the RGN trailer allows it to accommodate cargo that is more difficult for less flexible trailers. Referred to as a "detach", the RGN is ideal for transporting less than standard cargo, equipment that is longer, taller, or otherwise a non-normal size.

EXTENDED RGN (REMOVABLE GOOSENECK) TRANSPORT SERVICES


Similar to the standard Removable Gooseneck Trailer, the extended RGN has an added section for additional length and capacity for particularly tricky transport jobs. When cargo is too long for the standard Removable Gooseneck (RGN), we sometimes employ the extended RGN. Like the standard RGN, the back portion of the stretch RGN is removable, creating a convenient ramp. The extended RGN has a versatile extension feature that allows it to meet an increased number of length requirements for cargo.


Extended RGN Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 150,000+ pounds
Main Deck Length 29 ft. - 65 ft.
Well Width 8.5 ft.
Legal Height Limit 11.6 ft.

DROP DECK TRANSPORT SERVICES



Drop Deck Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 48,000 pounds
Max Length 53 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 11 ft.

A drop deck, or "step deck" trailer resembles a standard flatbed model with a single drop in order to give the trailer the capacity for more cargo height. This is especially advantageous when the payload exceeds the standard height requirements for a regular flatbed. This is especially advantageous when the payload exceeds the standard height requirements for a regular flatbed. For especially large or oddly sized pieces of equipment, the drop deck trailers present a uniquely ideal solution; tractors, farming combines and large construction and industrial equipment.

EXTENDED DROP DECK TRANSPORT SERVICES


When a job necessitates a trailer that can carry an irregularly long piece of equipment or cargo, we employ the extended drop deck trailer. Like a flatbed with either a single or a double attached gooseneck, the extended drop deck gives the user capacity for additional height and length to meet the needs of a specific cargo load. Typically, the extended RGN is more flexible than the standard RGN, so it's only used when absolutely necessary.


Extended Drop Deck Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 45,000 pounds
Max Length 63 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 10 ft.

LOWBOY TRANSPORT SERVICES



Lowboy Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 40,000 pounds
Max Length 24 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 14 ft.

A lowboy is one of the lowest trailers to the ground, as its name suggests. Many heavy hauling tasks are carried out with the help of the lowboy trailer because of its use for extremely large, heavy, and oversized or over-dimension equipment. Typically when you see a sign that says "Oversize Load" on the interstate, the cargo being hauled is done so with a lowboy trailer. Many shippers use lowboy models as their top choice for these jobs due to their capacity to carry extremely heavy weights of cargo, and their stability as the lowest, off-the-ground option.
