Ship Construction Freight Early and Save!
If you want to manage the transportation cost of building materials, it’s always in your best interest to schedule your shipment as early as possible. Many construction companies place standing orders for building materials and supplies, and we can help you solve all of your transportation and logistics problems if you run a JIT manufacturing operation. By scheduling a standard order every week or every month, you can forecast your long-term shipping costs more accurately.
The fixed costs of transportation of building materials are the same for transportation companies no matter how much freight they’re carrying, and shipping early saves you money because they want to ensure that their trucks are always carrying their maximum capacity. Our dispatchers are connected to a worldwide network of construction material transportation companies throughout the world, and those companies frequently offer deep discounts for unsold freight space when their drivers are making deliveries. And if you’re running a dropshipping operation, we’re always happy to assist you with logistics and order fulfillment.
Transportation of building materials FAQ
Our team of dedicated transportation specialists at Heavy Equipment Shipper is here to help 24 hours a day when you have questions about building material transport. You can get a shipping estimate online in minutes, or you can give us a call at 1-866-411-1173 if you don’t see the answer to your specific question in the section below.
How are building materials transported?
Choosing the right mode of transport will depend on the type of building materials that you need to ship. We have large open containers for transporting building materials such as topsoil, sand, and gravel, and we offer flatbed shipping for shipping construction materials equipment. You might need to reserve a specialty trailer such as a lowboy or a step-deck for transporting oversized items, or if you need to ship large equipment with unusual shapes and dimensions.
What is the best way to transport construction equipment?
A lot of building materials can be shipped on pallets just like any other type of freight, and you’ll need to use large open containers for transporting building materials such as gravel and armor stone. Large construction equipment can be a little more challenging to ship. Many transportation companies operate “hotshot” flatbed trailers to haul mission-critical machinery that needs to be delivered in a hurry. Time is of the essence with hotshot flatbeds, and many hotshots might only hail a single piece of equipment at a time. If you’re on a more flexible schedule, it’s always to your advantage to transport as many materials together as you can. Lean manufacturing operations might not store a lot of raw materials onsite, but companies will often place standing orders to make sure that they have the supplies they need when assembly begins.
Large machinery such as cranes and excavation equipment are often shipped on removable gooseneck trailers (RGNs) because the front part of the trailer can be detached to allow the machinery to drive onto the flatbed. Oversized equipment might also need to be hauled on a step-deck or lowboy transport. A step-deck sits 20″ lower than a regular flatbed, and it can accommodate freight of a maximum height of up to 10’2″. If you’re unsure about what kind of trailer to reserve for your shipment, we’re here to help. Each type of trailer is designed to carry specific types of cargo, and we’ll make sure to reserve the right type of flatbed so that your load will be safe and legal for transport. We exclusively partner with bonded transportation companies, and your equipment and materials will be transported by a fully licensed and insured driver.
How much does building material transport cost?
The transportation cost of building materials will be based on the weight of the materials, the distance of the trip, and the mode of transport. If you require a mode of specialized transport for oversized equipment, it will usually cost you more than shipping standard freight. You might also incur the expense of additional permits or escort vehicles for certain oversized loads. Hotshot flatbeds are the standard mode of transport for unique and critical equipment that needs to be shipped quickly, and you can expect to pay a premium for expedited shipping.
Let us know if you have flexible delivery deadlines so that we can help you save you even more money on your shipment! Transportation companies deliver building materials and equipment throughout the United States every day, and you’ll save the most money if you ship your materials on trucks that are already headed in the same direction. It might take you a few extra days, but it’s a great way to manage your costs. Transportation companies also offer great deals on unsold space after they’ve scheduled shipments, and our dispatchers will help you find available space on those routes. We partner with the most trusted building materials transportation companies in the world, and we proudly offer specialty shipping services customized for every customer.
