Frequently Asked Questions
A float service, also known as a float transportation service, specializes in moving oversized or heavy equipment and machinery. Unlike traditional transportation methods, such as trucks or trailers, float services utilize specialized trailers known as float trailers or lowboys. These trailers have a low deck height, allowing them to transport tall or oversized loads with ease. Float services are preferred for their ability to accommodate large and heavy equipment efficiently and safely.
Our float services are designed to transport a wide range of equipment, including but not limited to:
- Heavy machinery (e.g., excavators, bulldozers, cranes)
- Industrial equipment (e.g., generators, compressors, turbines)
- Construction materials (e.g., steel beams, concrete panels)
- Oversized structures (e.g., prefabricated buildings, modular units)
- Agricultural machinery (e.g., tractors, combine harvesters)
We recommend booking float services as far in advance as possible to ensure availability and proper planning for your transportation project. The lead time may vary depending on factors such as the size of the equipment, the distance of transportation, and any permit or regulatory requirements. Contact us early in your project planning process to discuss your needs and secure your spot in our schedule.

- Permit acquisition and regulatory compliance assistance
