Transportation Services

Dieselgen understands the importance of transportation services when purchasing equipment. Dieselgen regularly assists buyers in identifying providers of transportation services. These Transportation Service Providers have significant heavy haul experience, are competitive in the marketplace, and importantly have been used by existing buyers on a regular basis.

Equipment buyers may always choose to make transportation arrangements themselves. Dieselgen will not be held liable for any acts, omissions or negligence arising from third-party transportation arrangements whether from the above listed transportation providers or an outside transportation provider.

Transportation rates are subject to change and many factors affect transportation costs, including: machine type and configuration, distance and route travelled, as well as type of trailer and permits required to haul the load. The relationship/contract for transportation is ultimately between the buyer and the transportation provider. All questions about pickup dates, delivery dates, cost and payment information should be directed to the transportation provider.
