Moving your Heavy Equipment  Moving Heavy Equipment

One of Titan Translines’ several specialties is the moving of heavy equipment. We are what you might call a Big Trucking Company! Heavy machinery movement requires specialized trucks, uniquely suited for the job of shipping over-sized, overweight, or over-dimensional loads, such as:

  • Multi axle trailers: These can have from three to six axles, with six to eight wheels on each axle. The load per wheel is distributed over several wheels to reduce the load on the roadway. Multi axle trailers are capable of carrying 20 to 60 tons. Even larger ones can carry up to 100 tons.
  • RGN’s (Removable Goose Necks): RGN’s are flatbeds that are designed for extra high or wide loads. Loading is accomplished from the sides or overhead by crane.
  • Double Drop RGN’s: Heavy machinery can be driven right onto these trailers, making loading easy. The low centre decks (wells) accommodate machinery that has extra height.

Transportation of heavy equipment requires more than specialized trucks.

  • Loading tools and machinery for this cargo is unique.
  • Knowledge of how dimension and weight of the load dictate type of equipment required is essential.
  • Attention must be paid to laws and permit requirements in provinces or states through which the load will travel.
  • Careful planning of the route to be taken must be made.
  • Escort service is also often a necessity for safety of trucks and other motorists.

All of these call for experience and meticulous planning. At Titan, we have the experience of a big trucking company that you need to get the job done safely and efficiently. We pay attention to every detail, including cleanliness of our trucks and trailers to eliminate the risk of dust or dirt damaging your equipment.
