Pickup Truck Hauling Services

Transporting a transporter is not only a tautology but also a tough job that not a lot of transportation carriers are equipped to handle. This is where the USTrans.com services come in to weed out the companies who are incapable, from those who are more than prepared to transfer your pickup truck from one location to another.

What we Offer That Others Don’t

We provide the security that you need when sending a car out or waiting to receive a newly purchased one from across the country. This is especially relevant, when you take into consideration how much time, effort, money and wear on the vehicle you prevent by using our pickup truck transportation services.

USTrans works with a while network of professional pickup truck transport companies and transport carriers who either specialize, or have years of experience in the transportation of heavy vehicles like pickup trucks. This weeds out those who don’t have the experience and cannot provide a guarantee for the safekeeping of your property.

What it Takes to Transport a Pickup Truck

Pickup truck transportation and the shipping of large loads is generally considered more expensive, due to their size and weight. These are factors which reduce the work potential of a trailer – where it would have been able to transport 8 vehicles, with a large pickup truck it will only transport 7 vehicles for the same distance.

Due to this pickup truck shipping, like that of a Ford F150, costs more than the transportation of a Toyota Corolla.

Pickup truck loading also takes longer than that of a family-sized car. Due to the mass and size of the motor vehicle, extra precautions must be taken when securing the load to the carrier. Hauling pickup truck and heavy vehicles takes experience and understanding of the laws of nature that come into play.

This is why it’s especially important to use our platform, because we know how to vet all truck transportation services   . Movements of trailers during steering and cornering will generally cause a swaying of the transported vehicles.

In order to reduce the inherent instability of trailers, all heavy loads, such as pickup trucks, must be secured onto the lower decks of a transport trailer. This helps stabilize the trailer by lowering its center of gravity closer to the road.

Shipping pickup trucks across the country requires a lot of know-how and experience this is why we put so much emphasis on vetting all pickup truck hauling services.

Securing your Vehicle

Once the vehicle is on the trailer, it’s secured to the chassis of the semi truck transport vehicle with belt straps. This process will vary based on the size of the vehicle as well as the type of trailer you have chosen – open or enclosed.

A closed trailer is a much more suitable choice if you are looking to protect your vehicle from all meteorological conditions, which is suitable in the winter and summer. Shipping pickup truck costs will vary depending on the type of trailer you’ve chosen.

The truck hauling services we chose to work with are very transparent about their rates. The price of an enclosed trailer is higher than that of an open trailer, so if you are not concerned about the condition of the vehicle, then we suggest you opt out for an open trailer.

Care during transit

The reason we pay attention to the experience of carrier, is because some carriers provide covers for pickup trucks who’ve been placed on open beds. These protectors provide a decent protection against rocks hitting the body of the vehicle, sunlight, dust and inclement weather.

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of trucks do you transport?

The carriers we work with are able to transport a large variation of pickup trucks, from large sized, modified ones, to smaller scale, equipment-based models.

How can I prepare my vehicle for transit?

You should make sure that the vehicle has enough gas to get onto the trailer, that its tires have enough air and that the battery works. It’s also helpful if you know that it can steer, accelerate and break – the easier it is to get the pickup truck onto the trailer, the faster it will be delivered.

Why is pickup transportation more expensive than that of smaller cars?

This is not always the case, however, most carriers will charge you more solely based on the fact that they can cannot transfer as many vehicles when they transport large autos. This means that for the same distance traveled, they will not have made the same amount of money, as they would have transporting a smaller car.

How can I save money on pickup truck transport?

There are several ways in which you could save money, however, they could be more inconvenient to you. One of the ways to save money is by having the truck picked up from a more central location. If your current location is more than 100 miles away from any major highway, the transportation costs will be higher, getting the vehicle closer to a major highway would reduce the costs drastically.

Can I have direct contact with the carrier?

While some companies do allow that, most transport carriers do not have a dedicated customer service desk, which makes communication more difficult. This is where our services come in – we are fluent in both the customer’s and technical languages, conveying and translating between the two parties so everything goes as smooth as possible.
