When your construction company finishes one project, it may need to get ready quickly to undertake another. As the owner, you need to move all of the equipment from one job site to the next so you can begin your work on time.
However, your construction company may lack the vehicles needed for towing earthmovers, bulldozers, and other machinery from one job site to another. Instead of buying flatbeds, wreckers, and trailers for this massive job, you can outsource it to a professional heavy equipment transportation towing service.
Weight Bearing Capabilities
The machinery that your construction company uses for clients' projects can weigh tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds. Their weight can be more than what a heavy-duty pickup truck can haul or tow on its own. It can also be more than what a small wrecker can bear without toppling over or overheating its engine.
Instead of trying to haul the machinery using small and ill-equipped trucks and wreckers, you can hire a heavy equipment transportation company to haul and tow them for you. The vehicles that the towing company employs have the weight-bearing capabilities needed to move the heaviest construction machinery safely, quickly, and without straining their bodies or engines.
The drivers for heavy equipment transportation also know how to move heavy-duty machinery and tools safely for you. They know what routes to take to accommodate their heavy-duty loads. They also know how to drive and maneuver the vehicles so they do not topple over and drop the machines and tools that they are hauling or towing.
This safe transport lowers your legal and financial liability as the owner of the construction company. You avoid having to pay out damages because of machinery or tools that come loose, fall off the trailers or flatbeds and cause accidents and injuries to other property owners and drivers.
Finally, depending on how large the equipment is that needs to be moved, you may need to secure permits to move and transport it. The heavy equipment transportation service can advise you if permits are needed to haul heavy-duty equipment down city or county roads.
Heavy-duty transportation towing services can benefit your construction company. You can get machinery and tools moved quickly and safely from one job site to the other. You can also get advice about whether permits are needed.
