Transportation Solutions for All Types of Disasters
United Heavy Haul offers covered and uncovered transportation for your goods and heavy machinery. Depending upon the weather, you may need your gear shipped in a covered trailer such as a dry van.
If protection from the weather is unimportant, flatbed trailers can transport your smaller pieces of heavy machinery into or out of the danger zone. Transport trailers available to you during a natural disaster include:
- Dry van. Unless you chain it down, heavy equipment that shifts during transport can damage a dry van. Great for hauling goods in bad weather.
- Flatbed trailers. In addition to small machinery, we’ll ship your containers or boxes quickly and efficiently into and out of the disaster area.
- Step deck trailers. Great for shipping motorized heavy equipment that doesn’t exceed dimensions. Smaller machines fit on the upper deck.
- RGN trailers. Your best choice for shipping heavy equipment that threatens or exceeds dimensional regulations. Perfect for large motorized machines.
Ask us to haul your heavy equipment locally or long distances. For local moves, we’ll include hotshot trailers and utility trailers to the list of transportation methods. We get creative, pulling out all the stops, when we’re dealing with a disaster.
