Watch this video to learn how to haul heavy construction equipment safely. When transporting heavy construction loads, a few things must be considered. Transporters must take all necessary measures to ensure the equipment arrives safely.
The first thing to consider is the size of the equipment. The weight, length, height, and width of the load are all vital to consider to know the right vehicle to choose and ensure compliance with the law.
Secondly, it is crucial to have the proper paperwork. This includes permits and licenses to show that one is permitted to transport heavy or oversized equipment. Doing this ensures that the government’s laws and regulations are followed.
