How Much Does it Cost to Ship Heavy Machinery From the USA?
You will have to call us for a custom quote on heavy machinery. Across-the-board prices are impossible to determine because heavy machinery doesn’t fit into typical size categories like cars do (i.e., compact, mid-sized, full-sized, small SUV, large SUV). Plus, there are other factors such as whether the equipment is assembled or disassembled, which ports the shipment is sailing out of, and what type of machinery you have.
Estimated Transit Time
This will vary with the country you’re shipping to, but in general it takes anywhere from one to two months to ship heavy machinery from the U.S.

Shipping Method for Heavy Machinery Shipments
For all countries, we use the RoRo shipping method to ship heavy machinery.
RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)
This happens to be the most cost effective way to ship boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, buses, and construction vehicles, as it features set departure and arrival dates. It’s ideal for transporting wheeled vehicles that can make it up the ramp onto the boat easily.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
We do not require it but we do recommend it. If you don’t, you have to pay out of pocket for damage that may occur in transit. That said, you can choose to cover your heavy machinery for just 50% or 75% of the value rather than 100% if you feel it’s too expensive. We offer:
1.75% of the value of the equipment for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. Coverage begins when the machinery is loaded onto the ship at the departure port, ending when signed for and collected at the arrival port.
