    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can you transport a forklift in a box truck?

    Yes, we can transport a forklift in a box truck. However, there are a few things to keep in mind:

    • The box truck must be large enough to fit the forklift with plenty of room to spare.
    • The forklift must be securely fastened to the truck bed using chains and come along.
    • The wheels of the forklift must be blocked to prevent it from rolling.
    Do forklift shipping rates change by season?

    The cost of shipping forklifts may be slightly more expensive in the summer due to the higher demand for vehicle transportation services. Shipping a forklift during the off-season is an excellent strategy to cut costs if you want. If this doesn’t work with your schedule, don’t worry— the cost varies only moderately from season to season.

    How far in advance should I schedule my transport?

    If you schedule your shipment in advance, we will be able to meet your deadline. Plan your transport at least 1 to 2 weeks in advance. We can accommodate expedited shipping requests. Please contact us so we can discuss your car transport schedule.

    To place an order, what information do you need?

    You will need to provide the nearest port where your vehicle will be picked up and delivered, as well as the name and phone number of the contact person at each location. Please let us know when your vehicle will be ready as well as the year, make, and model of the vehicle(s) that will be transported.

    How does the distance affect the price?

    We take pleasure in being a forklift shipping company that can deliver your vehicle anywhere. But as you may anticipate, the cost will vary depending on the overall distance sent. That cost includes the usage of the equipment, labor, and gasoline. However, without knowing more about your specific circumstances and taking into account the many other elements that affect pricing, it is hard to estimate how much the cost will vary with distance.

    Can I track my forklift transport online?

    You can track your shipment online 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This tracking update shows you the actual progress of the vehicle in real time. Enter the unique booking number in our car tracking form you were given during scheduling. Alternatively, you can call to track your shipment.

    Does AutoStar Transport Provide Forklift Truck Transport Services?

    Yes, AutoStar Transport Express Provide Forklift Truck Transport services along with all other types of forklifts.

    How to transport a forklift in a trailer?

    We prioritizes safety and efficiency when transporting forklifts. Here’s the process we likely follow:

    Trailer Selection: We match the trailer’s weight capacity to your specific forklift.
    Expert Loading: Our experienced team securely loads the forklift in reverse using ramps, ensuring the forks face away from the trailer for safety.
    Securement Expertise: We utilize straps and chains with proper capacity, anchoring them to designated points on both the forklift and trailer. Padding is likely used to prevent scratches.
    Safety Measures: As an added precaution, we may turn off the forklift’s fuel supply during transport.
