Boom lifts, scissor lifts and other types of aerial work platforms are used to provide access to elevated work spaces. The largest boom lifts weigh nearly 50,000 pounds. The smallest lifts can fit on the upper deck of a step-deck trailer. The main types of aerial work platforms we ship include:
Is your boom lift connected to a truck? Freedom Heavy Haul ships cherry pickers, as well as other work trucks, anywhere in the nation. Even if your cherry picker is inoperable, we can ship it as long as we can tow it aboard our trailer. When you need to ship a cherry picker, think Freedom Heavy Haul.
Your first choice for hauling your boom lift is a flatbed trailer. Flatbed rates are slightly lower than rates for step-deck trailers and RGN trailers. If you can fit your heavy equipment on a flatbed trailer, ship it.
Boom lifts come in all shapes and sizes, though. Depending upon itâ€™s dimensions, your scissor lift or aerial work platform might not fit on a flatbed. Trailers used to transport boom lifts include:
Smaller boom lifts and scissor lifts can ship on a hotshot trailer, maybe even a utility trailer. Hotshots are great for local hauling. Ask your transport agent to discuss with you the various options you have available to you for shipping your smaller boom lift or transporting your smaller scissor lift.
Boom lifts are mobile, so theyâ€™re pretty easy to shift. Usually you just drive them aboard their trailers. Scissor lifts and mechanical lifts are simple to move too. Like any other piece of equipment, make sure you center the load in the middle of the trailer.
A couple other tips for successfully shipping your scissor lift or your boom lift:
Use a winch to pull your scissor lift onto the flatbed. If you donâ€™t have access to a work crew, make sure your driver has a winch. Weâ€™ll find a driver who has one.
Load your boom lift with the boom pointing to the rear. For the safety of the driver in case of collision, the boom should be loaded facing away from the cab.
Dock loading for a flatbed is another key to success. Otherwise, youâ€™re pushing and pulling the platform up steel ramps. Scissor lifts, in particular, have low ground clearance. Longer ramps that have less slope work much better than shorter ramps.
