When searching for a company to haul your heavy load, you’ll want to ensure that you’re hiring a reputable contractor. But that’s just the beginning. There are 3 important criteria to keep in mind.

Commitment to Excellence – Choose a company that strives for excellence in all that they do, and can prove it through their results. Such a heavy haul trucking company is:

  • Committed to the highest level of safety.
  • Environmentally responsible.
  • Consistently on time and on budget.
  • Skilled in delivering cargo with precision and care.
  • Possesses the proper permits and insurance.
  • Compliant with all state regulations.

Experience and Versatility – Choose a company that has both the technical expertise and proper equipment to handle all types of heavy haul services, involving hazardous and non-hazardous materials. This includes waste and specialized hauling, heavy, oversized hauling, as well as disaster cleanup, demolition, and large quantity earthwork projects. If hazardous materials need to be towed, the company you hire must be experienced and well-versed in all compliance issues for industrial and commercial needs.  

Reputation – Don’t underestimate the importance of a company’s reputation in the industry. Ask for multiple references. Any company worth hiring will gladly provide references. Listen to what past clients say about their own experiences with the company.

Choosing the right partner for your heavy haul trucking needs  is critical and shouldn’t be done without a bit of research and knowledge. Once you have considered the factors discussed here, however, you’ll be that much closer to finding the right company for the job.
