PROVEN CRANE TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
Exclusive Crane Ship Company
Once again because of the size of that crane, it is almost a sure thing that permits will be required during the crane transportation. In most cases, permitting for the width and possibly for the weight will be required. This is in addition to the standard cost and the secondary load on an additional truck for the counterweights. If there is a disassembly of the crane required before transport, the customer will be responsible for the disassembly.
For crane transportation, we will coordinate with you or your onsite foreman to be onsite with our trailer for the loading process. Once the unit has been loaded, we will make sure that we properly secure the crane and all of the additional components to our trailer. We will use a combination of chains and straps to secure the cane and the components. Crane transportation is a very involved process and requires a knowledgeable team in order for the unit to be transported safely and properly.
Because of the size of most cranes, crane transportation usually requires some type of disassembly before loading. Also, if the crane has additional counterweights, these will more than likely have to be transported on a separate trailer from the crane itself.
Crane transport is one of the most involved types of heavy equipment transports within the industry. There are so many moving parts to this type of transport. In addition to the actual transport team, there is typically a disassembly team that works on getting the crane prepped for transport, and then there is also another team that is responsible for the actual loading of the unit. It takes an experienced transport team to coordinate all aspects of crane transport. We have the experience and the knowledge to handle this type of transport. We not only have the team to handle a transport this large in scope, but we are also well aware of the permitting requirements for moving cranes.
The crane transport process can quickly go in the wrong direction if all of the teams involved are not on the same page. From beginning to end we handle the complete coordination of all that are involved, to make sure that nothing is overlooked. We pride ourselves in having one of the top-rated logistical teams for crane transports in the United States. This allows us to provide excellent service and peace of mind transport of your equipment.
We are an American Cranes Hauling and Transport Company
American cranes and transport services provide exclusive transport services within the United States. Because crane transporting presents a unique set of obstacles, it is important to make sure that the company that you use for your crane transport needs is reputable and established. Cranes are very expensive pieces of equipment. Companies that invest in purchasing this type of equipment need to make sure that they have a reliable transport company to move their equipment.
American cranes and transport services are a specialty service that we have at our company. We have a single division dedicated to transporting cranes in the United States. We specialize in handling the complete process from beginning to end, including working with the disassembly and loading teams. We can provide multiple trucks if there is a need for additional loads for the counterweights or fallout loads if the crane has to be dismantled and transported separately. No matter how big the crane is, we can handle the transport. We can move your crane down the road or even across the country. No job is too big or too small for our American cranes and transport team. You certainly do not want to trust a transport of this magnitude to a transport company that has no experience in moving cranes.
When it comes to shipping items by ship, the loads are typically loaded and unloaded using a ship crane. A ship crane specializes in lifting heavy items from the dock onto the ship itself. This is the fastest and most efficient way to load items onto the ship. The ship crane is a part of the ship. It is similar to a regular crane that is used at a construction site or on dry land, but a ship crane is mounted to the deck of the ship. This allows for the ship to be able to load and unloaded without having to outsource or rent a crane at the dock to load and unload the items at the dock. These cranes are typically heavy-duty and have the capacity to lift several tons at one time.
Most of them rotate which makes loading and unloading very easy, however, some are fixed and do not rotate and require the vessel to be maneuvered for the placement of the loads. The beauty of being able to load and unload your own ship makes the loading and unloading process so much easier, not to mention that it is so much more cost-effective than having to outsource the loading and unloading to a third-party crane service.

A crane ship is a vessel that is designed to operate in areas where port facilities do not have cranes or crane services available. A crane ship can transfer cargo between ships and other vessels or from ships and vessels to the pier. The crane ship has proven to be very convenient in areas where the piers have been damaged and it is not possible to get the ship close enough to the dock to be loaded or unloaded. When supplies need to be shipped to areas of disaster where the dock and the pier have been damaged to the point where it is not safe or feasible to use, having a crane ship makes the loading and unloading possible.
How are cranes transported?
Cranes are transported using a specialty trailer designed specifically for transporting oversized and heavy equipment. In most cases, cranes require some disassembly prior to transport and ma require additional trailers for counterweights and fallout loads. If the load is oversized it may require a permit and escorts. All of this will be determined prior to transport.
