Obtain accurate dimensions for equipment.
These measurements can sometimes be found in the product manual. If the manual is absent you can try a google search to find it. Some manuals even offer tips for moving the equipment safely. Make sure the equipment can clear your new location.
Thoroughly secure equipment
Wrap and secure blades, cover vulnerable areas and ensure fluids are contained. An experience rigger can offer advice on how to band and secure equipment for transport.
Know what is insured
Know what is covered under your transporter’s insurance. The industry-standard liability coverage offered by most LTL is $.10 cents per pound. Photograph equipment upon delivery to make sure everything has arrived safely.
