Heavy Haul Carriers
Did you know that there are seven questions you should ask heavy haul carriers before entrusting them with your project? Their answers quickly reveal if you are working with professionals who get your load delivered on time and on budget.
#1 How reliable is your fleet of vehicles?
What you are looking for is a hint at the age of the trailers and ancillary equipment. Although it is true that this equipment lasts for a very long time, machinery that reaches a point where insurers no longer offer coverage is a warning sign that you may be dealing with an outfit that has an outdated fleet. Remember that newer vehicles come with improved safety gear and fuel-saving technology. When a professional reveals that there are multiple fleet vehicles currently out of order, think twice before entrusting your project to this company.
#2 Who handles your permitting process?
Avoid doing business with heavy haul carriers that outsource the permitting process. Third-party involvement inevitably leads to delays. This company is not as dedicated as the carrier to the project. As a result, the permit applications may linger on someone’s desk who is out for the week
#3 Can I call this professional and get status updates?
Assuming that you were told that this company handles its permitting process in-house, it is a good idea to ask for direct contact information. Some heavy haul carriers suggest that they have a department taking care of the paperwork. In reality, the receptionist handles the paperwork as time permits. Deal with a business that has a dedicated consultant who sees the permit application process through from start to finish.
Heavy Haul Carriers Route Planning
#4 When do you plan the route?
The majority of heavy haul carriers will handle route planning in-house. Ideally, this is done electronically with the latest up-to-date information on road and traffic conditions. Since it is difficult to re-route a heavy load setup while in transit, planning well at the onset of the trip can make a huge difference with respect to an on-time and on-budget delivery. The right answer usually involves a two-fold process. An initial route is planned to facilitate a mileage rate quote. Closer to the actual date, the route is checked for current conditions. Adjustments are made as needed.
#5 Whom do I talk to when I have questions?
Experienced heavy haul carriers assign consultants to their clients. This ensures that there is one go-to person who handles your project from start to finish. Doing business with this type of company cuts down on the calls you make to different departments and professionals when inquiring about a load status or road problem.
#6 How do you arrive at your project cost?
Although this is not a trick question, it quickly tells you how high the likelihood of a budget overrun might be. Reputable heavy haul carriers will start by asking you very detailed questions about your load. In addition to projected weight estimates, this also includes exact dimension measurements. Based on your estimates, the professional should now tell you the type of equipment your project requires. Equipment selection leads to the disclosure of supplementary gear needs. For example, when your project calls for escort and pilot vehicles, your expense goes up.
Lastly, the professional should discuss the proposed route and spend a bit of time mapping out a possible itinerary. This facilitates the estimate of mileage costs. Anyone who is too quick to present you with an off-the-cuff figure should be questioned a bit more closely about the calculations that went into the cost projections.
#7 Can I save money on this project?
Discount heavy haul carriers offer prospective clients the opportunity to save money on their services. What they do not disclose is that a lot of this involves work the client has to do. For example, if a company offers you savings by letting you handle the permitting process yourself, you are on the hook for a lot of paperwork, load estimation and specialized information gathering that will take up a lot of time – unless you are in the business yourself. While you save money on the project, you lose money by the amount of time you spend working your way through the bureaucracy.
A company that does not require you to do work for them should ideally suggest that they would double-check the route to see if there is a more direct way to deliver your goods. Another money-saving tip could also be a different haul time. Mileage rates change based on the date, day and season. You can save money if your project can wait until after a busy holiday shipping season.
There is very little doubt that entrusting your load to experienced and full-service heavy haul carriers is the right choice.
