Heavy Machinery & Equipment

With a dedicated team of heavy machinery and equipment transport professionals, you’ll have access to the experience and knowledge needed to relocate your oversize cargo nationwide.

Our extensive network of road, rail and sea freight partners means we have access to move everything from agricultural and farming equipment to earthmoving, construction and mining machinery including cranes, bulldozers, excavators, telehandlers, wheel loaders, motor graders, rollers, compactors and more.

Working closely with earthmoving, agricultural, construction and mining companies, we have capability to move oversize cargo of loads up to 300 tonnes and measuring up to 6.9m in height, 12m in width and 20m in length. We provide transport solutions to move all self-propelled cargo and tow hitched loads.

Heavy machinery and equipment moves are not “one size fits all” and requires intense planning. Our transport specialists will review your transport requirements, budgets and timeframes to divulge the meticulous logistics needed and will determine the most appropriate transport method; whether by sea freight, road, rail or a combination of modes.

With rising fuel costs, the costs of transport by traditional land freight is often expensive. In most circumstances, shipping costs avoid the need for escorts, wide load permits and other costs associated with long, wide, high and heavy loads. Dismantling and reassembling equipment is also not necessary, further reducing the costs of transport.

Organising and preparing cargo for shipping can be tricky. We've compiled some of our most frequently asked questions to make things easier.

Transport via sea freight means your vehicle will travel in a fully enclosed ship between ports. Vessels are fully enclosed, ventilated, and watertight which means your vehicle will not be exposed to the elements. There are also no stone chips, mud, insects, road/truck grime or red dust to contend with which is prevalent in the Australian outback.

Vehicles travel on specialty-built ships and are safely and securely fastened by professional stevedores to prevent movement during transit.
