Tractor Transport

Whether big or small, heavy or tall, ShipLux makes tractor shipping a breeze for all!

Tractor Transportation with ShipLux

Tractors serve as the bedrock of any farm. For farmers, ranchers, agricultural workers, and homesteaders, these machines are essential. The versatility and usefulness of tractors make them synonymous with farming. Each farm's unique size and requirements dictate the type of tractor needed.

Your farm's lifeblood runs through your trusted tractor, making it the heart of your livelihood. Regardless of whether you nourish the entire nation or solely your family, your tractor empowers you to achieve it all. When the need arises to transport your tractor, whether for purchase or sale, count on the experts at ShipLux to make it a seamless process.  At ShipLux, we understand that time is precious on a farm, and waiting is simply not an option. Your farm never rests, and neither do we. 

Tractors often come equipped with wheels instead of tracks, but that doesn't automatically make them ready for road travel, especially for longer journeys. When you need to transport a tractor from one location to another, shipping becomes the most viable solution. 

From dispatch to delivery, you'll have a dedicated agent by your side, ensuring a smooth and efficient experience. With ShipLux, you can rest assured that your tractor will be handled with care, and you won't have to worry about unnecessary delays. Your time is valuable, and we'll make sure your tractor arrives promptly at its destination!

ShipLux Shipping Methods For Tractors

Flatbed Truck

Flatbed trucks are an excellent option for transporting smaller tractors that meet standard dimensions. The tractor is securely loaded onto the flatbed, and exposed to the open air during transit. Flatbed shipping is commonly used for short to medium distances within a country or region.

Enclosed Trailer

If you want to provide additional protection for your tractor during transportation, an enclosed trailer is a great choice. The tractor is loaded inside the trailer, shielding it from the elements and potential road debris. This method is ideal for longer distances and when you want to safeguard the tractor from any damage or weather conditions.

Roll-on/Roll-off (RoRo) Shipping

RoRo shipping is a popular method for international transportation of tractors. In this process, the tractor is driven onto a specialized vessel, known as a RoRo ship, and securely parked inside. Upon reaching the destination, it is driven off the vessel. RoRo shipping is efficient and suitable for larger tractors

Container Shipping

For international shipping, another option is to place the tractor inside a shipping container. The tractor is securely loaded and fastened within the container, offering protection from external factors during the entire journey. Container shipping is commonly used when there are multiple items to be shipped alongside the tractor or when you need to ensure complete isolation from the outside environment.
When selecting a shipping method, consider factors such as the size and weight of your tractor, the distance it needs to travel, and any specific requirements for your shipment.

Checklist

How To Prepare Your Tractor For Shipment


There are plenty of things you can do to make your tractor ready for us! Please consider taking the following steps: 

  1. Clean the Tractor: Before transporting the tractor, give it a thorough cleaning to remove dirt, debris, and any other substances that may interfere with the transportation process or damage the equipment. 

  2. Measure the Tractor: Accurately measure the dimensions of the tractor, including its width, height, length, and weight. This information will help us determine the most suitable shipping method and ensure compliance with transportation regulations.

  3. Remove Attachments and Accessories: Take off any attachments, implements, or accessories that are not necessary for transportation. Detach any removable parts that could be damaged during transit.

  4. Secure Loose Parts: Securely fasten all loose parts of the tractor, such as doors, windows, and hoods, to prevent them from opening or coming off during transportation.

  5. Protect Vulnerable Areas: Use protective covers or padding to shield vulnerable areas of the tractor, such as the windshield, lights, and control panels, from potential damage.

  6. Check Fluid Levels: Ensure that all fluid levels, such as fuel, oil, and hydraulic fluid, are at appropriate levels. Do not fill the fuel tank to avoid spillage during transport.

  7. Disconnect the Battery: Disconnect the tractor's battery to prevent any potential electrical issues or accidental activation during transit.

  8. Lower Attachments: If your tractor has hydraulic attachments, lower them to their lowest position to reduce the overall height and avoid clearance issues during transportation.

  9. Inspect and Document: Conduct a thorough inspection of the tractor's condition before it is loaded onto the transport vehicle. Document any existing damages or issues with photographs and written notes for reference.


By following these steps and taking the time to prepare your tractor properly, you can ensure a smooth and secure transportation process, protecting your valuable equipment throughout the journey.

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Tractor?

The way that we operate at ShipLux is all about transparency and honesty. We do not offer a set price, instead, we ask every customer to complete a quote, one that is personalized for your every need, based on the shipment. 

The cost of shipping a tractor can vary widely depending on several factors. Some key factors that influence the shipping cost include:

Distance

The distance between the pickup location and the delivery destination is a significant factor in determining the shipping cost. Longer distances generally result in higher shipping costs.

Size and Weight

The size and weight of the tractor play a crucial role in determining the shipping cost. Larger and heavier tractors may require specialized equipment or permits, which may increase the overall cost.
