Crane Shipping: Trailer Types

Lowboy Trailer

Lowboy trailers are commonly used for crane transport due to their low center of gravity, which can handle heavy loads without tipping over. They come in different sizes and lengths, from 40 to 53 feet, and with a height of 11.5 to 13.5 feet depending on the crane type. Lowboys are ideal for easy load and unload, and for getting under low-hanging architecture.

Flatbed Trailer

Flatbed trailers are a popular alternative for crane transportation, made of steel or aluminum and available in single, double, and triple-axle models. They offer a lightweight and maneuverable option while still providing a sturdy platform for hauling cranes and heavy equipment. Ideal for shorter trips, they range in length from 40 to 53 feet and are recommended for cranes that are under 13.5 feet in height.

Drop Deck Trailer

Drop deck trailers are versatile options for transporting oversize loads, including cranes taller than 13.5 feet and up to 19.5 feet. Their lower deck enables them to maneuver under low-hanging obstacles like bridges. Single, double and triple axle models of drop deck trailers are available.

Removable Gooseneck Trailer (RGN)

Removable Gooseneck Trailers (RGNs) are ideal for transporting cranes, as they provide a stable platform and allow for an even lower center of gravity than drop deck trailers. Featuring a removable gooseneck that can be attached to the trailer, RGNs are designed to get under bridges and other low-hanging architecture. They come in single, double, and triple axle models with a height range of 11.5 to 19.5 feet, making them suitable for various oversize loads.

When it comes to crane transport, choosing the right trailer is essential. The weight and height of the crane, as well as the route of the transport, will determine the type of trailer that is best suited for the job. Lowboy trailers, flatbed trailers, drop deck trailers, and RGNs are the most common types of trailers used for crane transport. Our expert transport specialists will help you find the best trailer to ship your crane.

Start The Crane Transportation Process

Transporting a crane with Power2Ship is an efficient and cost-effective solution for getting your heavy-duty equipment safely from point A to point B. Before you begin the process, however, there are a few things you should consider to ensure your crane is ready for transport.

First, make sure you have the exact dimensions of your crane. This is important because it will help your transport specialist determine the best type of trailer for the job. Any crane taller than 13.5 feet and/or wider than 8.5 feet requires permits, so it’s important to know the exact measurements before you begin. Depending on just how wide your crane is, you may need pilot cars or escort vehicles to accompany it on the road.

Once you’ve gathered all the details about your crane, Power2Ship can determine the best trailer, route, and cost effective way to have your crane delivered. We’ll work with you to make sure the crane is loaded onto the trailer safely and securely. The trailer will be equipped with the necessary safety equipment and straps to safely transport the crane from point A to point B.
Once the crane is loaded, our experienced drivers will safely transport your crane to its destination. We’ll also take care of all the necessary paperwork, including permits and other legal documents required for the transport.

At Power2Ship, we’re committed to delivering your crane safely and on time. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re here to make sure your crane shipping experience is as smooth and stress-free as possible
