Ship Any Type of Forklift

Forklifts are used to lift and transport materials over short distances. There are two types of forklifts: construction and warehouse. Construction forklifts are designed to handle heavy loads on an open work sites, while warehouse forklifts operate in tighter spaces.

Warehouse forklifts run on gasoline, natural gas, propane or electricity. Construction forklifts use diesel. The basic types of forklift include:

  • Construction Forklift Transport. The two main worksite forklifts are telehandlers and rough-terrain forklifts. Telehandlers feature telescoping booms, rough-terrain forklifts have large attachments. Both use RGNs.
  • Warehouse Forklift Transport. So many types of warehouse forklift: low-lift, stacker, picker, reach-truck, side-loader, etc. Ask your transport agent about finding space as a partial load for your solo warehouse forklift.

An average warehouse forklift weighs 10,000 pounds, while a typical construction forklift is about twice as heavy. Shipping construction forklifts usually demand their own full-size trailer. Warehouse forklifts can be shipped on smaller trailers, particularly over short distances.

Trucks and Trailers to Haul Your Forklift

When it comes to shipping, ground clearance is the main difference between the two types of forklifts. Construction forklifts have plenty of ground clearance to help them navigate construction sites. Since they ride on smooth concrete floors, warehouse forklifts have minimal ground clearance.

Clearance comes into play when you’re pushing a machine up ramps for loading. Steep ramps can make it difficult to load a warehouse forklift, especially on a flatbed. Trailers used to transport forklifts include:

  • RGN Trailer. Only the largest construction telehandlers require RGN trailers for transport. Even your rough-terrain forklift should fit on a step deck.
  • Step Deck Trailer. The basic trailer used to haul construction forklifts. Smaller warehouse forklifts can travel as a partial load on the upper deck.
  • Flatbed Trailer. Perfect for shipping most warehouse forklifts. We can’t say it enough: You need a dock to load and unload a forklift from a flatbed.

Rollback trailers are another option. These specialized flatbed trailers have beds that tilt to the ground for easy loading. Rollbacks, which are more expensive to rent than flatbeds, are used mainly for local or regional transports.

Tips for Successfully Shipping Your Forklift

Remember to measure your attachments if you’re shipping them alongside your forklift. Construction forklift attachments, like buckets and grabbbers, are pretty big, so you must include them in your space requirements. Warehouse forklift attachments like drum handlers and man baskets also need to be measured and weighed.

If you’re using a dock, back your forklift onto a flatbed trailer. Booms should be facing the rear. Other tips for shipping your forklift successfully include:

  • Center the forklift within the trailer. Unless you have other equipment to balance your load, your forklift should sit in the center of the trailer.
  • Position the forks properly on the trailer. For safety, the forks should face away from the driver. Once loaded, lower the forks and tilt them forward.

Most flatbeds are about five feet off the ground. That gives you another eight-feet, six inches before you exceed most states’ height restrictions. If your forklift stands more than eight-and-a-half feet tall, you’ll need to ship it on a hotshot trailer or a step-deck trailer.
